Accreditation Check:

With larger workloads, more complex client needs, and broadening diversity in client populations, speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are utilizing speech-language pathology assistants (SLPAs) in their practice. SLPs often find themselves in a supervisory role without having received any training regarding supervisor roles and responsibilities or supervision skills.
