Less Stress More Fun!

Have you ever seen another SLP that looks like they are so calm and confident, and you think to yourself, why can’t I be like that? Yes, you can love your job again! In this episode, our guest, Jessi Andricks, focuses on helping SLPs reduce burnout and stress through evidence-based stress management tools and techniques. Several years into her SLP career, Jessi became so burnt out that she decided to leave the field completely.

Jessi’s career has come full-circle, and she’s stepped back into work as an SLP but is now thriving thanks to incorporating the tools she learned in her yoga and wellness training. Her passion is to teach other SLP’s to live without feeling burdened by stress each day so that you can have a thriving career.

Less Stress More Fun!

Thinking About Social Thinking Virtually

In school, we focus so much on the academic learning part of the process for our students. However, an important piece that we should also remember is social thinking. As SLPs, how can you support your students with their social skills and behaviors? In this episode, I am so excited to bring you solutions for just that through my interview with Ryan Hendrix. Ryan is a senior therapist at Social Thinking Stevens Creek in San Jose and a private therapist in San Francisco. Her diverse clinical experience includes preschool-age children to young adults with varying levels of social cognitive learning challenges. Ryan truly enjoys sharing this information with families and professionals in small settings, conferences, and ongoing collaboration with schools. She brings the concepts, frameworks and strategies of the Social Thinking methodology to life through stories and humor. Ryan is so knowledgeable! You are sure to come away with a TON of ways to help your students relate socially and interact with each other more effectively.

Thinking About Social Thinking Virtually

We Can Collaborate Too!

In our field, it's natural for Occupational Therapists (OT) and SLPs to overlap each other in the goal to help our kids. But how can we initiate collaboration in a fun and effective way? Cait spent most of her career as a social worker but has since found her calling as a COTA five years ago. She takes pride and loves every minute of play with her students as she helps them with their visual, fine motor skills, and writing challenges. Listen in as she answers questions about the need for collaboration, how to plan activities with other specialists, and how to incorporate games into your routine. Don't miss a new resource we're sharing so you can cut prep time and focus on new activities! Full show notes available at www.speechtimefun.com/37

Tips for General Ed Teachers - Always Fun with a Teacher’s Point of View

Have you ever wanted to get the view from a general education teacher on how SLPs and other special service providers in the school can support them? Me too. It’s always a good idea to bring the two groups together so you can work as a team. In this episode, we are lucky enough to get a fresh perspective from my first guest that is NOT an SLP or special educator, Gretchen Bridgers from Always a Lesson. Gretchen is a general education teacher of 8 years and was a Teacher of the Year runner-up two years in a row. With years of mentoring new teachers, providing professional development to school building staff, and speaking nationally at conferences and in-services, Gretchen has now invested her time solely to consulting individual teachers and school staff. I hope you are excited about this opportunity to hear from a teacher’s perspective. I know I am! It’s a great reminder to chat with the general education teachers you work with more often to find out how you can best support each other. Full show notes available at www.speechtimefun.com/36 P.S. - Have you heard about Speech Retreat Recharge - my virtual event coming up? This retreat with 6 hours of professional development programming is happening November 7th, and you can learn more at speechretreat.com.

Tips for General Ed Teachers - Always Fun with a Teacher’s Point of View

Free Websites for Distance Learning

We are now in the heart of the 2020-2021 school year. While some schools are back in session in person, many of you are still doing virtual sessions with your speech students.

In today’s solo episode, I share a few of my favorite websites to use with my students in both distance learning and in person. I hope that you will listen in and add these great options to your list of resources for distance learning. These fun games will help motivate your students even during a Zoom or Google meeting.

Keeping Older Students Motivated During Distance Learning (SLP Connect Podconference)

I have been lucky enough to work as an SLP with older elementary age (grades 5 and 6) students for many years now. Much of the work I have done with speechtimefun.com was developed while working with these amazing older students. In this episode that is a part of the 2nd Annual SLP Connect Podconference, we chat about older speech students, unique challenges that they face, and strategies you can use to work with them in the classroom and virtually. The more you can get your older students to “buy-in” to speech sessions with you by finding what motivates them, the easier it will be to work with them. I hope you enjoy this episode and are excited to dive in with your older speech students. After completing this Podconference, participants will be able to: Describe factors to consider when working with older speech students Describe ways to keep older students motivated via distance learning Identify at least three evidence-based strategies for working with older speech students List tools and resources available for working with older students virtually Remember, if you would like to earn CEUs from listening to this “pod-course” episode, you must go to the SLP Connect website to pay the administration fee before October 7th, 2020 at 8 pm EST.

Push-In Therapy: Make it Work!

Let’s Chat Research Behind COVID and Teletherapy

The last six months of COVID have been a real rollercoaster ride, right? Most of us have needed to adapt our lives and work to fit the requirements of a school shutdown or remote work. We quickly learned how to use teletherapy to meet with our speech students and still be as effective as possible. So, what does the industry research say about teletherapy and the trends we have seen because of COVID? In this episode, I’m excited to dive into the research with Meredith Harold from The Informed SLP. She’ll fill us in on what studies show about teletherapy and COVID in general.* After listening in, I hope you feel a sense that everything will work out and be okay. The future may still have some surprises for us SLPs, but we are equipped with the skills necessary to help our students succeed. *Disclaimer: This interview was recorded early summer 2020 before any plans for the 2020-2021 school year were announced.

The Journey of an SLP-A and Children’s Book Author

Are you interested in the field of speech pathology and the options of becoming a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant or a traveling SLP? Have you ever wanted to write a book but aren’t sure how to fit that goal into your already busy career as an SLP? If you are looking into either area, then you will really enjoy my conversation with my guest in this episode - Jayah Washington. Jayah has a wealth of knowledge to share with us about her journey as a traveling SLP-A and as a children’s book author. Jayah Washington is a licensed Traveling Speech Language Pathologist Assistant. After traveling around the country she noticed the lack of diversity in children’s books in the public schools. In October 2018, Jayah self-published her first children’s book and will be attending graduate school this fall for Speech-Language Pathology. After listening to my conversation with Jayah, I hope that you recognize the broader opportunities that are available in the speech pathology profession. There are many other ways to work in the field outside of a school setting. You will love your career the most if you find the area that works best for you.
