A resource for those starting SLP Graduate School


Just a few years ago, I was sitting in my un-classy apartment in West Georgia impatiently waiting to start SLP grad school. It's been almost 3 years and I've learned one or 2 things. Last year, I wrote "Summer Reading List for New SLP Grad Students" . But, allow me to share something I wish… Continue reading A resource for those starting SLP Graduate School

Which SLP university should I pick? – At least consider the debt


I've had a few moments lately where I started thinking about what I was thinking, and how I came to think that way. It has little to do with the school's name on my diploma or how much it cost me. It has everything to do with the supervisors and professors who taught me there.… Continue reading Which SLP university should I pick? – At least consider the debt

Part 1: Online SLP Graduate Programs


There are a million things about the Speech-Language Pathology profession that I love, yet there remains this small inkling of disappointment when it comes to SLP graduate schools. There just are not enough schools with too few spots for some amazing would-be-SLPs out there (I know they are out there). I won't delve into the… Continue reading Part 1: Online SLP Graduate Programs

SLP Graduate School Midterm


In undergrad, studying for a midterm in a course like Biology, math, history, etc. was more about the short-term. How little can I study in order to make an A or B? or What do I need to make in order to make my desired grade? I'm sure others may disagree with this mentality, but… Continue reading SLP Graduate School Midterm

The Mind of an SLP graduate student


Graduate school in Speech-Language Pathology. *sigh* I have run through the gammot of words to describe grad school: In August 2011 it was: "exciting...new...awesome...learn everything...new textbooks....CLIENTS....treatment" In June 2012 it is: "overwhelming...almost done...new clients....internships...CFY...summer sucks...when is graduation" Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying my program, clients, and all things SLP; however, today it just… Continue reading The Mind of an SLP graduate student

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

Applying to Graduate School for Speech-Language Pathology


Rising Seniors in Speech-Language Pathology and/or Communication Sciences and Disorders programs think of one thing during the summer: Where will I apply for Grad School?  At least that's how it was for me. Questions begin forming as the impending nature of applications loom... How much are application fees? Do they have an out-of-state tuition waiver for Audiology?… Continue reading Applying to Graduate School for Speech-Language Pathology
