Last Wednesday I registered for summer and fall classes. For the month of May and part of June, I will be taking Dysphagia and Motor Speech Disorders. This will be my first time learning about the medical aspect of SLP and I am really excited about this!! From the last part of June until September, I will have the summer off from school. During this down time, I would like to volunteer at the Autism Collaborative Center on campus or volunteer at a literacy center, complete my 25 observation hours, work, and do some travelling. I am still finalizing summer plans so stay tuned for those.
In the Fall, I will be taking Diagnostics, Voice Disorders, Audiometrics, and Aphasia. I will also take the clinical readiness test, which will determine if I am ready for clinical work. I also may have a graduate assistantship which will require me to work 20 hours a week and if I don’t get the ga position I still plan on working.
These next few months will be busy but I am looking forward to learning more new things, and FINALLY getting closer to having clients!
See you in the next post!
