The College of Saint Rose seeking placements for communications sciences and disorders students



In an attempt to find clinical placements for 35 Saint Rose master’s degree students in communications sciences and disorders so they can remain on schedule for their certification and August graduation, we are asking for your help.

The 35 communications sciences and disorders students are in need of anywhere from 30 to 200 hours over the next several months in order to complete their clinical requirement of working with clients 18 and older. The COVID-19 pandemic has reduced the number of facilities taking student placements at the same time we have a rising number of communications sciences and disorders students who are scheduled to finish their programs over the summer.

"I need an adult placement, anything that is working with adults in the area of speech language pathology, anything where they can get those hours. There is a lot of room for creativity," said Jackie Klein, director of clinical services for the Joy S. Emery Educational and Clinical Services Center at Saint Rose.

Nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, and school program for students 18 to 21, are all possibilities, Klein said, and given the concerns about COVID-19 transmission, the work can be done via telemedicine. 

Telemedicine has allowed alums to offer placements in Colorado and at the University of Minnesota, so the opportunities do not need to be local. Saint Rose is also able to get students some clinical hours in our own Pauline K. Winkler Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic but not enough to meet all the students' needs.

If you work in a field that could offer placements or have suggestions, please contact Jackie Klein at [email protected].
