Are you an SLP tired of low wages and limited professional growth opportunities? You're not alone. Across the United States, many Speech-Language Pathologists share your frustration, particularly when it comes to low salaries. One major reason for this is that large contract companies often underpay SLPs. These companies secure lucrative contracts with schools but only pass on a fraction of those earnings to the hardworking professionals who fulfill them.
Imagine a different scenario—one where you hold the contract and set the terms. Over the past several years, we have empowered hundreds of SLPs to do just that. Our comprehensive School Contract Training program equips you with the essential tools and knowledge to secure your own contracts with schools.
