Louisiana Travel Speech Language Pathologist FAQ

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) are responsible for assessing and treating individuals with speech, language, literacy, social communication, cognitive-communication, fluency, or swallowing disorders. This includes the use of speech and language therapy techniques to improve communication skills and swallowing abilities. Speech, language, hearing, and swallowing disorders can happen for several reasons, such as a stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, developmental delay, Parkinson's disease, or a cleft palate. Speech-language pathologists typically work with children or adult patients who have speech difficulties in some form or another, such as not speaking at all or having difficulty speaking.

To travel as a speech-language pathologist, you must have a degree from an accredited speech-language pathology program and pass the national licensure exam.
