Jennifer Schababerle @Schabab_SLP
@SLPTanya private practice- Pros- make own hours, (have kids,) and establishing relationships with clients. Cons- cancellations #SLPsnQs
Aubrey Dunlap @atklingensmith
@Schabab_SLP similar for itinerant work...& no-call/-no-shows are the worst type of "cancelation"! #SLPsnQs

I forgot to mention the biggest con I see to private practice: Not being able to see the kids in their natural environment. #SLPsnQs
Elizabeth H. @speechpatholizo
@SLPTanya #slpsnqs I travel, work in EI. Pros, independent, flexible, cute kiddos. Cons, driving everywhere, no homebase office, $toys
Chá @chaisabel
@SLPTanya #SLPsnQs I work in a school. A pro would be the variety of the caseload (5-21yrs). A con would be I don't have employee benefits.
Karie Reilly @scarie
@SLPTanya #SLPsnQs em I work in special school,unit in mainstream , community, adult residential, and adult day service- pros&cons for each!
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
@chaisabel you don't have employee benefits in a school?? Are you subcontracted? I've never heard of that for school employee #SLPsnQs
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
@scarie so you work in all those different areas? Is that all under one employer or separate contracts you juggle? #SLPsnQs
Tanya Coyle @SLPTanya
I actually see travel as a pro - I can listen to podcasts/books and chill out. It's a con cuz it takes away office time tho #SLPsnQs
Chá @chaisabel
@SLPTanya #SLPsnQs In PuertoRico most SLPs are subcontracted = no benefits :( April is NOT my favorite month= #IRSproblems
Daphne Goold @daphnegoold
