Speech-language pathologists (SLP) are much-needed healthcare professionals to help treat communication, speech, and even swallowing disorders in predominantly children by providing education, training, and counselling. Surprisingly, tens of thousands of school-aged children in Canada require speech therapy. As a result, speech-language pathologists are in high demand – often, they’ll have waiting lists spanning months or even years.
As an SLP, you work hard to improve the lives of their patients and their families. But there’s always a risk of an allegation of misconduct or a slip-and-fall incident for which you may be liable. Make sure your business is covered for the unexpected with adequate insurance protection.
