Read some direct quotes from our recent CFs 🎙
Our CFs gain skills they carry with them the rest of their careers, all while being supported by their mentors.
“My mentor was available to fully support me when needed yet allowed me the space and freedom to make clinical decisions and run my sessions with my own clinical style. PTS staff were friendly, encouraging, and supportive.”
“My mentor was always available when I needed her. Also, she took the initiative to make sure we were meeting all requirements and hours, which took that off my plate. I appreciated it so much.”
Our Clinical Directors go to great lengths to place CFs where they’ll get the guidance and encouragement they need to start shaping their professional identities.
“I really liked how supported I felt by all of the therapists at PTS. During COVID year, they were super transparent about different ASHA or CF specific stuff which I liked because it kept us in the loop. The clinical coordinators and directors were always trying to make things work and be flexible to our level of comfort or schedules.”

Find the delicate balance between challenging yourself and giving yourself space to ask for help so you can grow your skill set and add more tools to your SLP tool belt.
Technology can be a useful tool when you’re trying to encourage students to connect with their speech-language pathology sessions.
Effective collaboration between teachers and SLPs is vital for the success of the students in your related services program. By collaborating, students can receive even stronger supports!
As a school-based speech-language pathologist, you want to provide your students with the best resources possible to improve their communication abilities. We’ve developed activities to do just that!
PTS is able to provide all the mentorship and resources needed for a successful CFY, but you are in the driver’s seat. This is your experience, and we encourage you to take ownership of it by accessing all that is available to you and asking for what you need! Your mentor will provide you with all the mandated supervision, but this experience is so much more than that. We hope you take advantage of all PTS has to offer!
