Former Speech & Language Department volunteer at Gundersen Health System

It depends on what you want out of your volunteer experience. I only volunteered for two days a week. Every day was a little different depending on how busy the SLPs were. I'd often help set up patient technology, such as AAC devices, to make them more personable and user friendly. I'd help to address envelops to send out for their aphasia support group. Additionally, I'd help the pediatric SLP work with some of her clients in the gym. I'd help with having them follow directions and would try to elicit more language.
