Spring Break – #SLP2Be style
Our test yesterday (Thursday) was easier than anticipated. My 12 page study guide was helpful; I swear when I get a client with Dysphagia of head and neck cancer…I know all the possible treatment avenues and risk factors. And I made an A to boot. 🙂
Update about Alaska: I am leaving May 2 from Atlanta International Airport and will be flying all sorts of ways to land in Anchorage, AK around 4:00 Alaska time. My new found friend, Jeanne Sorenson, will be picking me up. Her and her husband have graciously offered their home to me for the 10 days I will be there. I. CAN’T. WAIT. It only makes the waiting longer when I think about it. So I don’t. But I kinda do. All right…I think about it tons, but I am beyond excited my dream is happening.
About 3 weeks ago “I had a dream” of creating an Executive Functioning Group for College Students with ADD, ADHD, and LD. I wrote the dream down, then went and found 15 articles to support my dream (Evidence Based Practice at its finest), then submitted a rationale to my Clinic Supervisor. To my astonishment, she loved the idea. NOW….I will be hosting an Exec Functioning group for this population on-campus this Summer 2012. What is still the unknown here, is if anyone will actually sign up for the class. 😦 I have hopes, but if I get at least 3 people…I will probably cry from excitement. Here is the Flyer for my group …
I’m turning it into an ASHA Poster Presentation for this November —Hopefully it will be accepted and I can present. What fun that would be?!
Over Spring Break I’m going to Siskin Hospital for Physical Rehabilitation to observe an SLP on-staff and have an informal interview for my mini-medical internship in Fall 2012. Hope all goes well and they like me 🙂
And some humor
