Why Choose a Corporate Speech Pathologist?
Interest in enhancing effective English business communication skills across the globe is increasing as international conference calling, public speaking opportunities, team building, and hiring accelerates in our global marketplace. As companies and individuals seek resources for enhancing business communication skills for both native and non-native English speakers, Corporate Speech Pathologists are emerging as an exceptional, effective resource.
What is a Corporate Speech Pathologist?
Corporate Speech Pathologists are communication specialists who have in-depth knowledge and experience with many areas of communication skill building. As Speech-Language Pathologists, they have completed at least a Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from an accredited university. They have studied both normal speech and language, as well as communication disorders and differences. If a client demonstrates an underlying component of a voice disorder or other area that affects their communication, a certified Speech-Language Pathologist will be able to identify this and address it. CORSPAN members have a background in Speech-Language Pathology, though they may or may not continue to practice in a traditional setting. They have met rigorous educational and clinical qualifications and have been awarded the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) at some point in their profession. Most CORSPAN members continue to renew their CCC, which can be verified by contacting ASHA directly through their website: www.asha.org
