Abstract

The purpose of this study is to focus specifically on private practice in speech-language pathology by exploring the relationship between educational preparations and running a successful business that is also personally rewarding. Fifty speech-language pathologists and audiologists working in private practices will be given a questionnaire developed from the literature review. The questionnaire will include variables such as education, experience, and background as well as items specific to private practice. The questionnaire link will be sent to the Academy of Private Practitioners in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and current private practitioners across the state of Arkansas. Participants will complete the survey, which will be analyzed descriptively through several key factors addressed within the questions.
