I wanted to write this Blog entry for a while now, but I really wanted to take the time to develop the appropriate wording to really inspire, motivate, and capture the essence and the unique role that a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) portrays in the lives of others.
In an ever-changing world full of a diverse group of individuals, it is important to be aware of different cultures. As a
Speech Language Pathologist, one has to be culturally aware in order to lay a foundation that promotes effective communicators when engaging with others from various cultural backgrounds. Visionary is a powerful word that drives the work that an SLP does on a daily basis. We are patient enough to take the time to see the potential within each client, strategize our plan of action and then make the vision reality. Education, research, and collaborating with other professionals allow speech pathologists to become knowledgeable in an array of areas within the field. Speech Pathologists are dedicated individuals who are passionate about what they do which makes each contributor to this field a pioneer.
The Petals of a Speech Language Pathologist will continue to bloom each day, with the proper tools in hand to nurture each plant!
