Abstract

With the increasing critical shortage of qualified speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in the schools, graduate programs are charged with thinking beyond traditional programs in order to train committed candidates to serve school-aged populations in a cost-effective manner. The Department of Speech Pathology at Loyola College engaged in a partnership with the Maryland State Department of Education whereby students would be provided a scholarship for their degree, and in return would complete five years of employment upon graduation. A critical component of this program stipulated that students be employed and supervised in a local education agency. After experimenting with numerous models for clinical supervision in the school, one model emerged as effective. The college, student, and school perspective regarding effectiveness is presented.
