hello fellow dopers!
i am doing a bit of on-line research for a friend, and have so far come up with nothing but dead ends, so i am bringing my search to the boards of the Straight Dope in hopes of clarification.
the question is:
how does one go about becoming a speech therapist? is it an undergrad degree, or do you need a masters? is it a degree that most schools offer, or do you have to go to a specialty school? how long does it take to get a degree in speech therapy? is it hard finding jobs as a speech therapist? how much money does a speech therapist make?
any speech therapists out there with advice?
and mods, i put this in GQ because i am looking for factual answers, but if this seems like more of an IMHO, please feel free to move it.
