I want to help you to get accepted to Graduate School in SLP

An individual pursuing speech pathology must have a true interest and investment in the field.  Graduate school is not easy, is exhausting and stressful.  If one does not have a true passion for the field, completing this degree will be incredibly difficult. It is critically important that one have a sincere interest in helping people with various speech, language, cognitive-communication, fluency, voice, and/or swallowing disorders. Those considering going into the field should also be flexible, patient, persistent, and tolerant. This is because all of these characteristics are needed in order to be successful at performing evaluations and conducting therapy.

The Personal Statement of Purpose for Graduate School in Speech & Language Pathology and Therapy.

I strongly suggest that you gain as much exposure to the profession as possible before applying to a Master’s program. Not only will this experience be beneficial when applying to Master’s programs and throughout graduate study, but it also may help to shape your eventual career path by providing you with a better sense of what Speech-Language Pathologists do on a daily basis. Take advantage of any mentoring programs offered by your graduate program. Also, don't be afraid to seek advice from others who you may know that have already been through the speech-language pathology graduate school process. If you are truly dedicated to building a career in this area, you will find that there are a vast number of opportunities available for clinician practicum placement.

 It is very important that you carefully review the style and presentation of your application material for graduate school before submitting it, especially your Personal Statement of Purpose. Seeking the assistance of a professional writer is often a very good idea, especially if English is your second or third language. I would be happy to draft the first paragraph free of charge so that I have the opportunity to demonstrate to you how I can help in this regard. You will only need to pay for my services if you are very impressed with the first paragraph and decide to commission me to draft the entire statement.

Sample Introduction: MA Communication Disorders, Mixed Race Latina

I see speech as the foundation of communication and being able to communicate with confidence as the cornerstone of what defines us as human beings. This is why I have fallen very much in love with the study of communication disorders and I hope to be accepted into your distinguished program so that I have the privilege of giving my all to this field for the next 4 or 5 decades. I am a hard worker and a good—but not exceptional—student so far. The fact that my grades are higher in my Communication Disorder classes than other classes reflects my dedication to this area of study and the passion that I have for helping some of the most vulnerable and needy members of our community.

You will undoubtedly have applicants to your program with better grades and higher GRE scores than mine. Nevertheless, I humbly ask for acceptance based on my great passion for speech therapy and the fact that I already have professional experience in this area working as a speech assistant for Epic Health Services.

Sample 1st Paragraph for the Masters SLP, Chinese Immigrant, Bullying


My conviction that my calling lies in Speech Language Pathology is grounded in the fundamental experience of coming to the USA at the age of 10 years old and having my classmates poke fun at me because I did not speak English well. This experience was quite traumatic and now, as I look back on it, it serves as a constant inspiration for me to strive ever harder to reach my goal of doing all that I can to help children with communication difficulties to learn how to communicate better. Now, in addition to my native languages of Mandarin and Cantonese, I have not only mastered English but I am also fluent in Japanese. I seek to bring my language skills and great passion for helping children to the study of SLP in multilingual and multicultural contexts.

Sample 1st Paragraph SLP Masters, Disadvantaged Children, Inner City

I see my maximum professional contribution in years to come working in the inner city, especially with disadvantaged children from at risk homes. For these children, life is difficult enough without a speech impediment that makes it difficult for them to communicate - also resulting in their being bullied in many cases. I will be serving in a hospital, school, or private clinic, but always seeking out and putting priority attention on those who most need my help. Earning the Master’s Degree in Speech/Language Pathology will provide me with the preparation that I need to excel as an SLP therapist, developing long term relationships with special needs children and their families, children that suffer from ADHD, autism, or another disorder that results in communication difficulties.

Sample 1st Paragraph MS Degree in Speech-Language Pathology

I have worked in an educational setting for 6 years now, surrounded by teachers, social workers, psychologist, behavior specialists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists (SLP). While they have all served as role models each in their own way, it has been towards the SLPs that I have gravitated. The school at which I am currently employed pays tuition expenses for those employees who wish to further their education, thus facilitating my capacity to excel in your program since I will at least not be worrying about how to pay the tuition. I love special education and will be happy forever simply being with my little ones and doing everything that I can to empower them to deal with the lives that await them as adults. Speech-Language Pathology is the field to which I am most attracted because of the vast opportunity that is presented for having a fundamental role in helping children to master the most critical aspect of their lives: communication.
