always excited about new experiences and expanding my horizons at work. This
school year has been no exception. At the start of this school year, I blogged
about four new therapy interventions/methods I'm trying this year. So far, I've
followed up on one (re: using ''Building With Stories'' to modify books for

Thanksgiving break is so close I can almost
smell the turkey! If any of you are anything like me, you really NEED (and
deserve) this break! There's a lot about working as a school-based SLP that is
stressful, agitating, time-consuming, irritating...you name it! Anything from
budget cuts, to paperwork, to time constraints, to crazy ...
I have a confession to make ... diagnostic assessment is one
of my most favorite aspects of my job!
So, needless to say, I am really enjoying this ongoing discussion

Every 6 months or so, I like to recap and review popular
posts and the topics that seem to be most important to our readers. In

questions are being addressed and people are able to get the answers they are
seeking. Today's post will do just that, so please join me in ...

increasingly online. I have been delighted to discover several websites, groups

How is your
school year going so far?
The past 2
years have been very challenging for me with regards to organization. Early in
2010, I switched jobs after returning from maternity leave. When I moved into
my current position in February, not only was it the middle of the school year,
but the caseload was hefty. I inherited a group of about ...
In my last
post, I introduced Christopher Heistand, an SLP who owns a clinic in my
town. We talked about the pros and cons of clinic vs. schools. Here is part 2!
