As a speech therapist, you set a good example. Your vocal aptitude is therefore particularly important. You can prove this with a phoniatric certificate. Your hearing ability also plays a role, because as a speech therapist it is your job to identify speech defects and their causes. At the start of your training, you will therefore need a medical certificate confirming your health suitability and an ENT test. Empathy, patience and resilience are also important qualities. An extended certificate of good conduct is also necessary if you want to work with children.
