The Ins and Outs of Private Practice

The language used in the descriptions reflects the language of the sessions.

This presentation will feature three different approaches to running your own private speech-language pathology practice in a panel format.

Learning objectives:

  • Getting started: Is Private Practice for you?
  • Considerations for growth
  • Marketing and social media
  • Networking and building relationships in the community
  • Tips for running an efficient business: scheduling, cancellations and no shows
  • Use of assistants and volunteers
  • Costs (e.g., becoming incorporated, legal fees, other overhead)
  • Documentation and file retention
  • Treatment considerations
  • Where to get support

Following the panel presentation, there will be a question period to support participants in developing a greater understanding of private practice.
