As many students, especially older students are being transitioned into vocational training environments, it is vital for them to be comfortable communicating effectively. Communicating in the community is also a way to show new users how effective ...

  • Making Money on the Side For a School SLP

    When you were going into the field of Speech-Language Pathology, did you ever look at those ''average salaries'' graphs? Did you think ''Score! I'm going into a field that makes tons of money!'' I know I did!  Then, I started working for a public school system in the middle of Missouri and reality set in. It seems that SLPs rarely get paid ...

  • Those Busy Bees

    When I was a graduate student, I couldn't wait to find a home in the schools. I had an idealized picture of a nurturing environment, growing young minds, and an SLP as a butterfly, flitting among many classrooms and students. Reality doesn't always match our imaginations! The 2012 ASHA School Survey showed that paperwork and lack of planning ...

  • A Real Page-Turner

    Spinal cord injury, stroke, and hundreds of congenital and acquired disorders impair the use of hands--an essential body part for using touch-screen technology. A handful of apps are switch-accessible, but these consist mainly of AAC apps and some early childhood books and games (Jane Farrell keeps a list here). For all other apps, these users are ...

  • Finding Speech Therapy Jobs in 2012

    It's been over three years since I have written a post about finding jobs in the field of speech language pathology. Latest numbers show that unemployment in the United States has remained at a steady but significant rate of 8.2% for the second month in a row. This percentage is mainly concluded by the number of individuals actively seeking ...

  • BHSM Bulletin Board

    This week, I'll kick off BHSM by planning and decorating a bulletin board in our facility. This BHSM activity is, admittedly, easy to execute and not at all original. From public schools to clinics and hospitals, I think the majority of SLPs use this old standby as the least they will do for BHSM. I am not yet sure how I will freshen up my design ...

  • Better Hearing & Speech Month Is Here!

    Today's post is a reminder that the month of May is Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM), and this year's theme is ''Connecting People Through Communication.''  Today is May 1, and I thought the ideal way to kick off this month was to create a resource post for parents and therapists to easily access and utilize throughout this month and ...
