You CAN create a private SLP practice!
- Do you want to start a private practice but aren't sure where to begin?
- Have you looked into starting a practice but gave up after drowning in the information overload?
- Do you want to see a few private clients on the side while making sure your legal bases are covered?
This course is for you! This introductory course will help you answer the question "Am I truly ready to start a private SLP practice?" and give you 6 actionable steps and a checklist to follow.
Hi! I'm Jill Shook, an ASHA-certified SLP and owner of Jill Shook Therapy LLC. I also create resources for school- based and private practice SLPs on TeachersPayTeachers.
I opened my practice while also working a full-time school job and part time in Early Intervention, so I know how busy things can get! In the beginning, I spent hours and hours researching everything from the best website host and HIPAA-compliant email provider, to the best printer and paper cutter for my home office!
What makes me qualified to teach this course?
I'm glad you asked! Over the past few years, I have helped some of my SLP friends start their own practices, and I noticed trends in their questions- and that everyone was overwhelmed! There's so much information out there, and trying to keep it all straight can be impossible! I've done the research into every area of starting and maintaining a private practice, and I successfully run my practice while staying home with my young daughter and creating resources for TeachersPayTeachers. I personally handle all aspects of my business, from website design to paperwork to taxes, so I know from experience what works and what doesn't!
I created this course to help other SLPs take the leap into private practice without wasting valuable time reinventing the wheel!
What can you expect from this course?
My goal for this course is to give you the tools and confidence that you need to take the leap into private practice! Whether you want to start seeing a few private clients on the side, or create a full-time practice, I am here to cut through the information overload and help you quickly and legally realize your dreams!
