Speech-Language Pathology Assistants


The outlook for speech-language pathology assistants is bright. Much faster than average employment growth is expected for this profession through 2028. A short-term stall in job growth is projected due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has caused many businesses and schools to close temporarily in 2020. However, job growth for speech-language pathology assistants will pick up speed again at some point in 2021, when the pandemic ends. The reasons speech-language pathology assistants will continue to be in demand include population growth, lengthening life spans, growing awareness of speech-language disorders (such as stuttering) in young children, and increased public awareness of the problems associated with communicative disorders.
