Upon graduation from graduate school, these students have been employed as Speech-Language Pathologists in the following settings: hospitals, rehabilitation centers, school districts, and speech and hearing clinics. They work with adults and children with a broad range of communication disorders.
Every year one Communication Disorders student from BW is chosen to receive the Outstanding Undergraduate Award from the Ohio Speech-Language and Hearing Association at its annual convention. In addition, several of our students have also received the Outstanding Graduate awards.
