What is Speech Therapy

How often do they need to be re-certified?
Recertification for Speech-Language Pathologists by ASHA is every three years. Renewal of licensure happens on an annual or biannual basis depending on state regulations.
What is a Speech Language Pathologist/Speech Therapist?
A Speech Language Pathologist also known as a SLP is a communication expert who works with a range of communication and swallowing problems that affect people of all ages.

What are the Typical Schooling/Certifications/Qualifications? Speech-language pathologists are highly educated and trained clinicians, who hold at a minimum, a master’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). In most states, additional state licensure requirements include completing a supervised postgraduate professional experience and passing a national exam.

Speech Language Pathologists can earn the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Certification requirements are similar to state licensing requirements, so state licensed language-speech pathologists generally qualify for the CCC-SLP designation.
How does SLP-tele select their therapists?

SLP-tele carefully screens every candidate to ensure that they have experience working with a diverse caseload in outpatient clinic-based settings after which they must also pass a clinical interview. All candidates must have a state license in the state where clients are located in addition to their ASHA CCCs.
