Summary
"A survey was distributed to speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in Missouri public schools to obtain statewide information regarding caseload number, workload related activities and SLPs' level job satisfaction on various aspects of their job. An online questionnaire was sent to school-based SLPs in Missouri to solicit factual information on average monthly caseload numbers, factors that impact caseload assignments and the percentage of time spent on various professional responsibilities and job satisfaction ratings. Results indicated that 24% of the respondents had caseloads that exceeded the maximum state regulated caseload number for SLPs. Respondents were also largely unaware of the maximum caseload regulation within their school districts. Approximately 36% of the SLPs did not recognize themselves as having a specialty. Among SLPs who reported having a specialty, articulation and social language were most commonly reported. About 30% of the respondents had the perception that having a specialty tended to increase their overall caseload/workload. The caseload-related workload was not fully considered for caseload determination (e.g., the SLPs' specialty, experience, co-teaching, class planning, scheduling, meeting, and managerial responsibilities). Most of the respondents reported needing to work either before or after school for a varied number of hours (between 1 and 15). The survey results indicated that, overall, SLPs in Missouri were satisfied with their jobs, especially on aspects such as employee benefits, supervision/upper management, co-workers, nature of work and student cooperation with service and student outcomes. However, monthly workload, class scheduling complexity and stress level are factors that should be managed to improve the job satisfaction level of SLPs"--Abstract, page iv
