I also posted this in Education and Career, but I thought it couldn't hurt to post this here as well.
I've been interested in speech therapy as a career for the past year or two. I was planning to get a post-bacc/master's in the field right after graduation, but decided at the last minute not to go.
I worked as a tutor and English workshop leader for a couple of years. I do enjoy some aspects of teaching, but occasionally had trouble explaining things and sometimes had issues being assertive.
I am verbally skilled and have an interest in the healthcare field and linguistics, so speech pathology is most likely a good career path for me. I do plan on job shadowing in as many areas as possible before I make my decision, but can anybody give me any perspective on this? Is all I need is more self-confidence and someone to watch me during clinicals?
