Hire a Speech Therapist

 

Any difficulty, impediment, or problem with communication or speech disorders falls under the work of speech therapists. They are healthcare professionals who assess, diagnose, and treat communication, speech, and swallowing disorders in children and adults.  

Speech therapists work in a variety of settings: hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, schools, and research facilities on a part-time or full-time basis. Speech therapists also collaborate with teachers, doctors, social workers, occupational therapists, and rehabilitation counselors. 

When hiring a speech therapist, hiring managers look for empathetic and patient communicators. The recruitment process starts with a clear definition of the requirements, qualifications, and all other essential information for candidates. Hiring managers must be able to define the needs of the hiring healthcare facility, clinic, or school. Is previous work experience as a speech therapist a must? What is the age demographic of patients that the facility caters to, if applicable? What is the typical schedule for speech therapists? These should all be included in a job description. 

Speech therapists are also called speech-language pathologists. It is best to include both terms in your job description to make sure it appears in more search engine results. Where should you post your job vacancy? There are many hiring sites, social media platforms, and industry-specific online communities and groups where your job description can be visible to candidates. 

 

Responsibilities of a Speech Therapist

Speech therapists initially conduct a complete assessment and screening of patients. After the assessment, they identify and diagnose any speech disorders or problems. In collaboration with the patient, family members, doctors, and teachers, speech therapists develop an individual treatment plan for patients. Speech therapy exercises will depend on the patient’s age, disorder, needs, and goals. 

Children are treated through play therapy, talking, and with books and pictures. They model correct sounds during interaction and age-appropriate play. Speech therapists teach the child’s caregiver how to continue the speech therapy exercises at home. For adults, speech therapy may include exercises to strengthen oral muscles, breathing exercises, conversational strategies to improve communication, and other therapeutic techniques.

Speech therapists maintain detailed records of all therapy sessions and patient information. They assess the progress of each patient and modify the treatment plan as needed. Lastly, speech therapists keep up with new findings, techniques, and research on speech therapy. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Speech Therapist

 The ideal candidate for a speech therapist must have completed a master’s degree in speech therapy or speech-language pathology and hold a valid license and certification as a speech therapist. In-depth knowledge of speech disorders and treatments is vital to the role. Other necessary qualifications are excellent interpersonal, organization, communication, and problem-solving skills. 

Speech therapists contribute to a patient’s quality of life. By improving speech and communication skills, the patient will be empowered to form relationships and be an active member of the community.
