2 The College of DuPage Speech Language Pathology Assistant Program Thank you for your interest in the Speech Language Pathology Assistant program. Speech Language Pathology Assistants (SLPAs) are emerging professionals who, under the supervision of licensed Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs), provide treatment and screening services related to communication problems. SLPAs work in a multitude of settings, including schools, clinics, early intervention programs and rehabilitation facilities. SLPAs provide services for a wide variety of individuals, from infants to the elderly, with a variety of issues and disorders. Working under the supervision of an SLP, an SLPA can enhance the quality of life of the individuals served by: o Eliminating or minimizing the impact of communication disorders and enhancing functional communication, thereby allowing individuals to communicate wants and needs effectively and comprehend linguistic input. o Enhancing cognitive skills, thereby allowing individuals to effectively function in their activities of daily living and increase their independence. Without such intervention, individuals with communication disorders may experience social isolation and limitations in educational and professional opportunities. This packet provides basic information regarding the SLPA program. Information is also available on the SLPA program web site: Additional information about the fields of speech language pathology and audiology is also available at the American Speech Language Hearing Association web site For additional questions or more information on the SLPA program at College of DuPage, please do not hesitate to contact the SLPA Program Coordinator Faye Campagna, M.A., CCC-SLP at (630) or the Office of Admissions & Outreach at , a Health Sciences Program Advisor at (630) or the Health and Sciences Division at Applications submitted by students who are not currently enrolled and participating in SLPA 1101 or have not previously completed SLPA 1101 will NOT be considered for admission. In this circumstance, the student will forfeit his/her application fee. The SLPA Program The Speech Language Pathology Assistant (SLPA) program at College of DuPage is an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program consisting of 25 hours of general education courses and 39 hours of SLPA program courses and electives for a total of 64 credits. Graduates of the SLPA program at COD are eligible to apply for state licensure through the Illinois Department of Professional Regulations. SLPA program courses are offered in the evening, spread sequentially over the course of five consecutive semesters. While the program is designed to be completed in two years (five semesters), a student may opt, with the approval of the program coordinator, to complete his/her program on a three-year (eight-semester) track. Please note that College of DuPage and the Speech Language Pathology Assistant program reserve the right to revise curricula without notice. Classes With the exception of the practicum experience, all classes meet one time per week on the main COD campus in Glen Ellyn. Classes meet from 6 to 9 or 9:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. No classes are held Friday evenings. Students expecting to complete the program in two years must enroll in two courses per semester. Therefore, students will be on campus for class an average of two times per week each semester. Some program courses may be hybrid or blended courses, whereby a component of the course is held online; this reduces on campus seat time by up to 40%. All SLPA courses are offered one time per year. 2

3 Clinical Education The purpose of clinical education is to allow the student to apply the theoretical principles of the didactic portion of the SLPA program. Students will enroll in practicum during the final (spring) semester of the program. Practicum placement will consist of experience in a clinical setting three days per week (Monday to Friday), approximately eight hours per day, for the entire semester. A fee for professional liability insurance is included in the course fee for SLPA 2112 which is the clinical practicum course. Students working daytime hours will have the opportunity to continue their employment without disruption during the first four semesters of the program. However, arrangements must be made by students to be available three full days per week during their final semester in the program. These three days will be determined at the coordinator s discretion, based on clinical site availability and need. Weekend and evening placements are not available. Students typically will not be assigned to a site where they have been or presently are an employee or volunteer. Students may not be supervised by personal acquaintances. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from clinical sites, which are located throughout the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Students must attend the sites to which they are assigned. Progress on General Education Requirements It is not necessary for students to complete general education requirements in full prior to beginning SLPA program courses. However, it is strongly recommended that substantial progress be made toward completion of these requirements prior to beginning the program coursework. It is expected that students will be prepared to graduate upon completion of all SLPA program courses. Students must have all general education requirements and electives completed by the end of their fourth semester in the program. A student who has not successfully completed all general education coursework and electives by the end of his/her fourth semester may not complete his/her clinical practicum placements and may be dismissed from the program.

13 College of DuPage Health Science Programs POLICY FOR PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT IN CLASSROOMS, AND AT LABORATORY/CLINICAL SITES Revised Fall 2013 Socialization of students to appropriate professional conduct is a significant component of the Health Science Programs of College of DuPage (the Programs ). Students in the Programs are expected and required to be reliable and competent, exercise sound judgment, act with a high degree of personal integrity, represent themselves and College of DuPage (the College ) in a respectful manner, and observe all the rules and regulations of the clinical sites to which they are assigned. Students also have a responsibility to protect the welfare and safety of the patients/clients for whom services are being provided. Students placed at clinical sites must realize the privilege of this experience, its responsibilities, and the reflection on the College of DuPage and its numerous health programs. Any violation will be handled immediately so as to not affect C.O.D. s use of the clinical site for future students. In accordance with these expectations, when participating in laboratory exercises and /or assigned to clinical sites, students in the Programs must adhere to the following Policy for Professional Conduct. This Policy is in addition to the Student Code of Conduct outlined in College catalogs and/or policy (Board Policy 20-35). The policy of Professional Conduct includes, but is not limited to, 1.

Due to the sequential design of the curriculum in most Health Science programs, any period of suspension or dismissal may result in a delay in program completion. If the disciplinary action is suspension or dismissal from one of the Programs a form will be completed by the program coordinator and submitted to the appropriate Associate Dean. The student may appeal that disciplinary action to the Health Sciences Professional Conduct Review Board within 10 business days of the discipline imposed. This appeal must be in writing and submitted to the appropriate Associate Dean in the program area (HSC 1220). The student will not be permitted to participate in the clinical/lab portion of the Programs during the appeal process. However, the student may continue with on campus courses until a final decision is rendered from the appeal process. The appeal will result in a hearing before the Health Science Professional Conduct Review Board, comprised of faculty from other COD health science programs within 5 business days of the date the appeal is filed with the Associate Dean. Both the student and faculty involved in the disciplinary action may make an oral presentation to the Board in addition to written comments. There is no further appeal; the decision of the Board is final. If the decision to dismiss or suspend a student from a Program is upheld, no refund of tuition or fees or equipment or books will be provided. When a student is dismissed from a health program for professional misconduct, they are not eligible for readmission, or admission to any other health program at the College of DuPage. All health programs require completion of current health requirements and drug testing as a condition of program participation. Drug testing (performed at the student s expense) will precede clinical experience in all cases, and will be required prior to admission in some programs. Positive results on a drug screen or misrepresentation regarding drug use will lead to immediate dismissal from, or non-admittance to the particular program(s). When a student is dismissed from or not admitted to a program for a positive drug screen, he/she may reapply to the same program or to any other College of DuPage health programs after one year has elapsed. Criminal background checks are performed at the student s expense, and are required for many programs prior to admission. Positive results will be handled by individual program faculty, as per program policies. 13
