Opportunities in Speech Pathology.
Newman, Parley W.
The importance of speech is discussed and speech pathology is described. Types of communication disorders considered are articulation disorders, aphasia, facial deformity, hearing loss, stuttering, delayed speech, voice disorders, and cerebral palsy; examples of five disorders are given. Speech pathology is investigated from these aspects: the services and activities performed; the salaries, demands, and advantages and disadvantages; the development of the profession; educational preparation including sources of financial aid; and requirements and job seeking. The American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) and related organizations are discussed. Also provided are a list of training programs in speech pathology, a bibliography, the ASHA code of ethics, and the ASHA certification requirements. (RJ)
