This paper presents findings of an investigation into the amount of exposure to the speech-language pathology profession that is reported by current and prospective speech-language pathology students. This study investigated both therapeutic and social exposures to speech-language pathology (SLP) as both were considered to play a role in providing information about the profession (e.g., work settings, professional demographics and caseloads). The results showed that the greater majority of both the current and prospective speech-language pathology students had some type of exposure to speech-language pathology either prior to entering or prior to considering entering the speech-language pathology program. Furthermore, both the current and prospective speech-language pathology students reported being influenced by their prior exposure the speech-language pathology profession. Finally, the results showed that parents played a large role in career choice for the current and prospective students, and this may have also included influence through parents' own exposure to speech-language pathology through work settings.
