ANNOUNCING A NEW DEGREE PROGRAM AT

AMERICAN RIVER COLLEGE

(pending California Chancellor’s Office approval)

Speech and Language Pathology Assistant

Are you interested in working with individuals who experience

communication difficulties? Introduction to Communication Disorders will be

offered during the fall semester at American River College in Sacramento. This

first course will become part of a new degree program at the college.

What do Speech-Language Pathologists Assistants (SLPAs) Do?

Under the supervision of a licensed and ASHA certified Speech Language

Pathologist, the SLPA works with both adults and children with communication

disorders to help improve their speech and language skills. This might include

conducting speech and language screenings, helping to implement and/or continue

ongoing therapy activities as appropriate to treatment plans developed by the

speech-language pathologist, as well as other duties.

Why are SLPAs Needed?

Communication disorders are the nation’s leading handicapping condition,

affecting about one-tenth of the population. These disorders include childhood

speech and language impairments, voice problems, stuttering, language disabilities

caused by brain injury and communication difficulties resulting from hearing

impairments. Communication disorders isolate people from their friends, family

and the community. Such disorders might also limit job and educational

opportunities. Under the guidance of a speech-language pathologist, SLPAs can

help these people improve their ability to speak, understand and interact with

others.

Where will SLPAs work?

SLPAs are an important part of service delivery to individuals who experience

communication difficulties. SLPAs work for public agencies as well as in private

practice and rehabilitation clinics. Public schools, hospitals and rehabilitation

facilities are major employers of these individuals.
