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).

Don’t freak out, it’s just the SH sound


There was a moment Monday, before I started my first day of my full-time school internship, where I panicked. Heart fluttering, mind-numbing, terrifying panic.

It was like the knowledge was lost in an ambiguous depth of space… Continue reading Don’t freak out, it’s just the SH sound

#SinceWeBeingHonest + SLPeepEcho


I noticed #SinceWeBeingHonest is trending today on Twitter.  Beyond the use of auxiliary "be", I find it interesting so many people were compelled to share something honestly. I think I will join the #SinceWeBeingHonest bandwagon with some #SLPeep truthiness: #SinceWeBeingHonest SLP grad school is not as easy or as difficult as I imagined I imagined I would… Continue reading #SinceWeBeingHonest + SLPeepEcho
