What do you like about being an SLP?

“I fell in love with being a Speech Pathologist when I was able to make non-verbal children with special needs speak their first words. Every goal and objective that my students achieve because of my work, is so rewarding and has kept me excited about being an SLP for 23 years and hopefully for many more years to come.”
