Celebrating Better Hearing and Speech Month — Stories from #SLPeeps

I became interested in becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist initially because of an off-hand comment that a guy I was dating at the time said. His professor had said, “If I had to do over again, I think I would become a speech therapist.” I was sort of floating at that time, not really sure what I wanted to do with my life, and he said to me, “maybe you should be a speech therapist.
