  • Engaging in further research for therapy and treatment plans
  • Keeping records of therapy sessions and plans

Becoming a speech-language pathologist typically requires a Master's degree from an accredited program, passing a national exam, and gaining the necessary clinical experience before being able to practice. Speech-language pathologists should earn a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP), offered by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
