Share Your S.M.A.R.T. Professional Development Goals
I’ve had a few therapists ask me about writing S.M.A.R.T. professional development goals. I can find some examples for teachers, information on “how” to write them and even a few templates. However, there isn’t much out there for speech language pathologists to reference. After a quick search I found no examples specifically for SLP’s.
Has anyone recently completed their professional development goals? If you have, share your work. Basically we all work on similar things and with similar students. As a profession our goals should reflect our uniqueness and not be the same as teacher goals. We’re bright people and can figure out how to write a goal but why reinvent the wheel. Not that personal goals should all be the same but you may have though of a particular goal that is extremely appropriate but not typical.
Please share your thoughts and process around creating your S.M.A.R.T. professional development goals. Leave a few examples or other resources. We’re in this together and you’ll be appreciated more than you know.
