This that are on the know with experience, would you be kind enough to share some of the characteristics that make up a good speech pathologist?
I don't work well with children and would prefer adult care, however my concerns are such that I love variety, high technology (understand that there has been little progress made in this regard to slp) and I enjoy a fast pace work environment. Also, I'e been told that the work can be rather lonely, working in the adult sector and that mist is swallowing issues with lots of feeding and slobber. Is thus true?
I thought about nursing, but the blood, guts and feces factor bothers me. Moreover I understand they get walked all over with little appreciation. Obviously making a difference in someone's life is important , but I need to get the full scope of this career.
Thanks in advance
