Speech Language Pathology Services
Speech-language pathologists in the public schools serve students with speech and/or language impairments. A speech or language impairment is defined as “a communication disorder, such as stuttering, impaired articulation, a language impairment, or a voice impairment, that adversely affects a child’s educational performance” (C.F.R. §300.8.).
Speech-language pathologists who work in the public schools must have a master’s degree, have passed a national certification examination, and have completed a year of clinical fellowship. Further, they must be licensed by the state of Texas. For more information, see the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) Administrative Rules, https://www.license.state.tx.us/slpa/slparules.htm#11130
Speech-language pathology assistants who work in the public schools must have a bachelor’s degree, have completed 25 hours of observation, and must be licensed by the state of Texas. Their practice must be supervised by a licensed, certified Speech-language pathologist. For more information, see the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) Administrative Rules, https://www.license.state.tx.us/slpa/slparules.htm#11150

TWU SPEECH PATHOLOGY MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAM
The TWU Speech Pathology Master's Program-Distance Option is a learning venue supported in part by a grant from the Texas Education Agency and was created to help ameliorate the shortage of speech-language pathologists in the schools. Classes are held in education service centers and via live webinars watchable on your home computer. Clinical experiences are provided through sponsoring school districts and medical facilities across the State of Texas.
Texas Woman’s University (TWU) and TEA have announced information meeting dates for Cycle 10 TWU/TETN SLP Master’s Program. Registrants will learn general information about the program as well as the detailed information and the specific criteria required for the application process.. Additionally, attendees interested in seeking a bilingual certificate in addition to their master's degree will have an opportunity to learn more about the bilingual certificate requirements. Pursuing a master's degree in speech pathology requires individuals who do not already have a bachelor's degree in the field to take "leveling" course work. This information will also be discussed in detail.
Individuals who are interested in applying/participating in the program must attend ONE information meeting. These meetings will be held at Region 17 ESC. Please see meeting options below to register to attend a meeting. Cycle 10 begins in 2019 and runs through 2021.
