Being a speech language pathologist is amazing! Your concentration is phenomenal. The Deaf community is a huge community of professional actors, scientists, etc. and not just children. We have so much that needs to be done in the area of research for persons of all ages who communicate primarily through sign language but end up having strokes which can cause them to have difficulty remembering how to sign and communicate. Also, communicating with kids using sign language, knowing the different dialects across states to help them if they move from one Deaf community in one state to another, etc. There is such a huge rich contextual dynamic to the field especially within the concentration of working with persons who are Deaf or hard of hearing! Your setting and demographic determines what your career looks like so no two SLPs look alike :) Our field is unique like snowflakes.
