Where should I go to College?

Hi! I'm a 13 year old middle school student in San Diego. Today in history we were talking about college and it got me thinking. I want to go to a good school,but I'm not sure where. I want to major in traveling and linguistics. I would love to be able to travel the world as it had always been a dream of mine to go to Paris. I only speak two languages but I would like to learn more, and maybe get a career in translation. Thank you to those who have suggestions. Madi

How can I be an SLP that incorporates ASL in my practice?

Hi there! I've studied ASL all through high school and college (I'm a senior in college now), originally double majoring in ASL and speech pathology - now just majoring in SLP and minoring in ASL. I desperately want to incorporate ASL into being an SLP, but I've had professors tell me it's impossible/too rare of a circumstance to make a career out of. My question(s): Is it really impossible? What can I do to be able to to both in the future? I've been told to just say that I'm "deaf friendly" to patients, but what area of SLP would that fall into? My original thought was to offer ASL or re-learning spoken speech to those who lose it from trauma, like severe Dysarthria, but that's where I was told it wasn't 'a thing'. Does anyone have any input or advice? Thanks! #ASL #SLP #american-sign-language #speech-language-pathology
