Additional Workshop Comments
I have completed five workshops in Arizona since 2017. These were some of the comments I received on my evaluations:
Great workshop and I can’t wait to see my /r/ and /s/ kids.
This program (SATPAC) has the potential to change how I remediate sound disorders.
Loved this course! You are a very dynamic speaker with clear instructions.
Great day of learning!
One of the best courses I have taken in a long time.
Thank you for your contributions to our field. So many of our students spend way too long in Speech Therapy for artic. errors.
The information will be so useful to me with my clients. I can’t wait to try and use the program on my artic. kids. Info was very clear and practical.
I enjoyed the whole thing-I was engaged from beginning to end. Thanks so much!
This workshop is awesome and came highly recommended by a colleague.
This is super useful and all SLPs/SLPAs should know these effective strategies.
I feel like I can go back to school on Monday and start using these techniques and start making some progress. Yay!
It was a great conference! Thank you.
Excellent information! I feel that I can apply this information and these techniques to my caseload next week. You have given me a new outlook on articulation-and I’m excited to work on /r/ now.
Great conference! I can’t wait to use the SATPAC Program with my students.
You are a great presenter!!
Thank you for a great day of learning!
This course was truly amazing. After twenty years in the field, I found that Steve presents information in a clear, concise way but it’s all game changing for my current skill set. He encourages a consistent analysis that probes errors more accurately, providing a process of therapy that clear surpasses many methods I’ve learned to date. He provides insight into methods that work across all settings: including the group and time constraints found in the school-based practice.
In school, we learn all about speech disorders, delays, etc. We learn of course, developmental milestones, and a lot of anatomy, but nothing is mentioned about how to treat kids with speech/language issues. I basically graduated with no experience in providing therapy. The kids don’t want to know the extreme details about why they have a hard time-they want you to help them. Now I have some amazing tools under my belt to do that. I had speech in elementary school for a frontal lisp and the only thing I remember about it was my sticker book. I loved everything you had to say, teach and share. I also love your outlook on working with the kids-keeping a positive attitude and building a good rapport. I feel like they get overlooked so often, but it’s so important. Thank you so much!
And last August, I did a couple of workshops in California and Texas for school districts beginning their school year. Here are the responses I received from the SLP Directors:
“This was one of the best workshops that I have ever attended. The SLPs in Denton ISD are using the program and the kids are already making progress in just four weeks. I highly recommend Stephen’s SATPAC Program.”
“We SO enjoyed your presentation yesterday…”
a month later: “Your approach blends many aspects of best practice – correct oral placement, practice with nonsense words, massed practice, and “knowledge of performance” feedback. We love using the SATPAC program in our district!”
from the participants:
“Awesome presentation.” “Great resource.” “…very engaging.” “Great conference!” “Very thorough.” “Finally, a conference that gives useful information!” “Awesome!” “Great info.” “Very informative.” “Good sense of humor, too!” “Great information! I feel like I got a lot of new information and am ready to take on those “lifers” this school year.” “This course makes remediation of /s/ and /r/ easy in a systematic way.” “Great approach.” “I really like that this program is applicable to Spanish-speaking students.” “Great workshop! You gave us lots of great articulation strategies.” “I cannot wait to try this approach. It’s quite dynamic and makes sense.” “Delightful presenter!” “Very engaging speaker.” “Loved Stephen! He is great!”
