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. 💪

I’ll be honest with you here. I’ve tried so many different data collection systems that I’ve lost track — 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. 🙌

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
