Speech Therapy in the 21st Century: More on using Facebook!

Published February 21, 2011 10:00 AM by Alexandra Streeter
A while ago, I wrote an entry asking how you all felt about using Facebook professionally. We talked about whether or not it was appropriate to "friend" students, patients or parents, and for the most part, the general consensus was "no!"

I have discovered, though, some wonderful speech pages on Facebook, and I wanted to share them with all of you. I hope you have some you can share too.

These are are fantastic tips - thanks for sharing!! I agree that we may sometimes walk a fine line using social networks like facebook professionally, but there is also quite a bit to gain as well if we use it appropriately! Thank you for tackling this issue!!

You are very welcome! As an FYI for all - if you are just finding out about this now re: Super Duper -  If you click on Super Duper's FB page, you can actually scroll go back for several weeks worth of postings and print out any worksheets you may have missed. I do it all the time!

I think this is a great topic. I think people need to realize that social networking sites do service multiple purposes including work-related/educational ones (instead of just for posting pics and chatting).
