Millennials and Future SLPs


The 2009 ASHA Board of Directors and  Lemke and Dublinske prepared a document - Designing ASHA’s Future: Trends for the Association and the Professions - for the SLP profession. One of the future "trends" I was most interested in related to Generation Y, or the Millennial generation (born between 1982 and 2002). In 2011, ASHA surveyed the professions’ impression… Continue reading Millennials and Future SLPs

People applying to SLP Graduate Programs across the country have to do the following, in general: Locate an accredited university with a… Continue reading Streamlining SLP Grad School Applications

A follow up to “Craft a Stand-Out Application”


In the January 2014 publication of the ASHA Leader, there was  a post entitled "Student's Say: Craft a Stand-Out Application" As far as my Google search of "ASHA + SLP grad school applications" took me, this is one of the first of it's kind for ASHA.

The #SLPeeps at ASHA 2012 – Atlanta or Bust


So what's been happenin' in yalls neck o' the woods? (as we say in the South) I've been busy with my new part-time medical internship at the hospital where I live. Loving the hospital setting, doing modified barium swallow studies (MBSSs), and seeing clients for both in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation and assessment. But, I digress... Before… Continue reading The #SLPeeps at ASHA 2012 – Atlanta or Bust

2012 ASHA Convention: Blogger_Echo


I was quite excited to learn I was chosen to be 1 of 3 official 2012 ASHA Convention Bloggers.

The Wizard of Oz and SLPs


Have you ever thought ASHA was similar to the great Wizard of Oz? I gathered my thoughts, and I have found I enjoy a great many quotes quite relevant to my life: "Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers.

Social EBP for SLP


When I decided to start blogging about SLP related things, I never stopped to think, "Will anyone actually read my blog?" It was more about putting my answers out into the cyber world because I couldn't "Google-it-out" (instead of 'figure-it-out ). When I have an SLP related question about a new therapy idea, rationale for… Continue reading Social EBP for SLP

Evidence Based Practice – SLP


Every semester we are assigned clients in the on-campus Speech and Hearing Clinic . *nerves* The frightening sensation that someone is paying to have me work with their child, teen, or with them as an adult is surreal. Just a year ago I was sitting in class thinking about what I was going to do for… Continue reading Evidence Based Practice – SLP
