Why Choose a Career in Pediatric Home Health Speech Therapy?
You’ve spent the last years of your life in a lab littered with toys. You’re a Speech Therapist, and you’ve given so much of yourself to learn how to become a full-fledged Speech Language Pathologist.
Your Career Path Options: Public Schools, Private Clinics, Home Health
The reasons for starting the program are as varied as the people you met throughout. You’ve fallen in love with the kids you’ve worked with and know you want to get into pediatrics. But where?
- Public Schools: A safe and in-demand environment with challenges like sheer volume of need.
- Private Clinics: Offers financial compensation and better schedule flexibility.
- Home Health: A distinctive option with personalized care and benefits for both therapists and children.
The Unique Benefits of Pediatric Home Health
Home health therapists not only provide much-needed care but also very personalized care. Factors can reveal themselves in the home that are just not able to transfer into a clinic. They’re entering a kid’s life, showing, encouraging, and culturing the growth of that child.
Challenges and Solutions in Home Health
Getting to the clinic can pose an obstacle for many families. Home health was created to give these children a decent fighting chance, despite prohibitive circumstances. Therapy plans in home health are not a one-size-fits-all, and the materials and toys are tailored to the child.
The Rewarding Experience of Home Health
When a Speech Therapist pulls up to a kid’s house, they’re doing much more than entering a patient’s home. They’re entering a kid’s life. Home health is for the Child, for getting the best out of therapy, and getting the best out of ourselves in the process.
