I found this infographic (a visual learner’s dream!) on Presence Learning. It illustrates what goes on Inside the World of #SLPeeps, depicting settings, education, salary, and more for SLPs.
There were some parts that definitely caught my eye. One was the section that stated information about job satisfaction and burn out. But, the statement that really got my attention was that when a caseload exceeds 60 students to one SLP, roughly 1/3 make little to no progress.
I must say I was not really that surprised. When our caseloads get so high it can difficult to really give each student the attention they may need. It got me thinking how other people are feeling right now about their caseloads and effectiveness.
What is your caseload like? Do you feel like you can deliver effective speech therapy with your caseload? Have you switched settings because of feeling burnt out? I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions, maybe get a good discussion going about this hot topic.
