In this week’s episode of the SLP Now podcast, we’re going to continue with our 6-part series all about how to rock your school year and talk about setting up your caseload. πŸ’ͺ

I’ll be honest with you here. I’ve tried so many different data collection systems that I’ve lost track β€” I spent a lot of time searching for a “perfect” solution, but (spoiler alert!) I don’t think there is one right solution for all SLPs.

There are, however, a lot of really great options for data collection out there. So, what we have is the opportunity to get creative and put together a caseload system that complements our unique strengths and quirks. πŸ™Œ

That’s the angle we’re taking on today’s episode, so grab your beverage of choice (I’ll have a chai latte!), put your feet up, and listen in.

Key Takeaways

– Things to consider as you set up your data collection systems
– Creating systems based on your strengths
– State and district requirements
– The value of data checklists
– Different styles of data sheets (so you can choose which is right for you)
– A simple hack for goal tracking
– Using a paper planner
– Digital solutions to track progress
