How do I find a supervisor for the SLPA Fieldwork Experience?
Many of our students are already working at a school district as an aide or sometimes with a private practice as a behavioral aide. These students usually arrange for an SLP at the site to supervise their clinical practicum hours.
If you know any SLPs in the field, I would contact them first. If not, then you may need to try contact some school districts or private practices in your area to see if they might be willing to supervise you for the client contact hours that you will need.
** For students in the Los Angeles area, please note that LAUSD does not take calls from students regarding placements. Any requests must come directly from the university and their priority is to place graduate students. Do not call LAUSD regarding a SLPA placement.
