ASHA 2016 Day 2
Well I logged in almost 20,000 steps on the fit bit today. Seemed like all the sessions I wanted to attend were at the other end of the complex. Started early with a session on helping students with narratives. That seems to be a big issue on my caseload these days but in not your typical way. Did get some good ideas to share. I also had my picture taken in the PR Lounge with advocate as my title.
The second session was titled Progress Monitoring and put on by the two ladies who created the product SLP Toolkit. Lisa Kathman and Sarah Bevier are two dynamic working SLPs who may have just come up with a program and practical material that could work for school SLPs. I stopped by their booth (739) yesterday and got a demo. If you follow my blog you know I’m pretty critical but I was duly impressed. Lots of time you look at material or programs that just don’t fit but I think the SLP Toolkit fits.
The mindfulness session I attended wasn’t what I thought it might be so I went on to another session focusing on spelling disabilities. I got some good information out of that.
Decided to put my feet up for an hour or so before setting up my poster and meeting friends for dinner. I’m excited to present my poster and share my concerns. I”ve created a rack card that you can give to your school administrator to help start the conversation. The rack cards will be there all day and I will be there from 12:30-2. Board 273
Finally got out of this building and walked to Little Nonnas with friends. A fun little hole in the wall on Locust street. We had an excellent meal. It was just such a cute place. Highly recommend.
One more day to go.
