Have you ever thought about starting a private practice out of your house?
This episode with Kathy Hindman, a speech-language pathologist in Lawrenceville, NJ, is one of my most popular episodes to date, and I can attest that to so many SLPs being interested in her on the side, in-home practice.
Kathy Hindman has over twenty years of experience that includes evaluating and treating children and young adults in a variety of settings: from working several years in an intensive behavioral-based program for students with autism and developmental disabilities to working for local preschool programs and elementary schools to spending many years working in Early Intervention with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers with various delays and challenges in all areas of development.
In this episode, we get into the details and talk all about what it takes to run a speech therapy private practice out of your own home. We also talk about what she had to learn along the way and the little mistakes she has made that turned into learning experiences.
In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:
- Time and expense involved in creating space in your home
- Tips for using SEO to get discovered online
- Deciding when the timing is right for you
- Mistakes that turn into learning experiences
- Where you can advertise your in-home business
Kathy went into private practice because she had the safety of a solid income coming in and was able to slowly build it up. I think this is what a lot of SLPs are most interested in, so I am glad Kathy shared that with us.
I also love that she mentioned how simple it was to set up her private practice in her home! It does not have to be super complicated or expensive, so if that is something that has worried you, don’t let that hold you back!
