#5 Getting Started with Teletherapy

I am so grateful that I was able to chat with Tracy Sippl about teletherapy. She is a fabulous resource! I know I learned a lot from writing this post with her, and I hope you will, too!

#4 Must-Have Therapy Tools

Ah! Who doesn’t love a good list? This post includes links to all of my favorite tools that have made my life easier as an SLP!

#3 How to Organize a Speech Therapy Cart

This one was posted at the end of 2016, but it got a lot of attention in 2018! If you’re an organization nerd like me, then this post is for you!

#2 How to Teach Following Directions

If you struggle to teach students how to follow directions (and then actually use the skill in the classroom), this post breaks it all down! After making all of the mistakes, I share what I learned from digging through the research and implementing those strategies in practice!

#1 Finding the Best Student Data Collection Solution for Your Caseload

The most visited post of the year… The post is all about student data!

This post got a mega makeover this year! We added a quiz and doubled down on the organization to make it super easy for you to find the best data collection option for your caseload. I spent hundreds of hours trying to find my ideal data collection system, and I so hope this roundup will save you some of the trouble!

  2. I love the data sheet post!! I love all the options you provide as I am always looking for ways to change up how I take data for my kids!!
