Speech Language Pathology Assistant

The Speech Language Pathology Assistant program prepares graduates to work under the supervision of a Licensed Speech Language Pathologist who evaluates, diagnoses, and treats individuals with various communication disorders.

A Speech Language Pathology Assistant (SLPA) is a person who assists a licensed Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) in a variety of areas, including:

  • Conducting therapy in the areas of receptive and/or expressive language, articulation, fluency, augmentative/alternative communication (AAC), and oral motor skills
  • Preparing materials for speech/language therapy
  • Scheduling clients for speech/language therapy
  • Maintain files and billing insurance
  • Maintaining equipment

Courses provide instruction in following written protocols designed to remediate individual communication problems. Supervised field experience includes working with patients of various ages with communication disorders. 

Graduates may be eligible for registration with the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Speech Language Pathologist and Audiologists and must be supervised by a Licensed Speech Language Pathologist.
