Course Description

Ever thought about starting a private practice, now or in the future? In this training, Jena Castro-Casbon, MS CCC-SLP will discuss the steps that SLPs follow in the path to start a successful private practice. Jena is here to dispel some common misconceptions regarding what a private practice has to “look” like, who it has to treat, and how you have to run it. Spoiler alert: there are no two private practices alike. The beauty of a private practice is that you can make it into whatever you want it to be. That’s some incredible flexibility.
