Speech-Language Pathology is Stressful. Here is the Perfect SLP Playlist.

Is being a speech-language pathologist stressful?  Yes.  Do you love your job?  Absolutely.  People ask these questions, and here’s the thing.  The field of speech-language pathology requires a few extra years of college, hard work, out-of-the-boxing-thinking, patience and time.  (Cue Cyndi Lauper’s Time after Time.)  I would say that all meaningful work contains these ingredients.  So, what do I do when the going gets tough?  Music as been my comfort, and, on this day, I would like to share my SLP Playlist.  So, here are some jams and beats to get you through the best profession that exists.
