The reason I haven’t written a newsletter in a while is that I haven’t had much to share.
Here are some recent happenings:
- I’m back at my preschool – 8th grade school for my 40th year as an SLP. I completed a 2-year RtI study with articulation students seeing them all individually for 15 minutes once a week. The preliminary look at the results show excellent progress with almost all the kids. I hope to have this as a journal article sometime in the future.
- I did my first podcast for the Speech Link with Char Boshart.
- I did an Advanced SATPAC 6-hour webinar for SATPAC users that took place on 3 afternoon/evenings in July. It is now up on the SATPAC website as a recorded webinar: https://satpac.com/sacks-workshops/advanced-webinar-2-2/
Pam Marshalla passed away in 2015 while working on her most important and biggest project. Her daughter Shanti has spent the last 4 years finishing it up and is soon to be released. It is The Marshalla Guide-A Topical Anthology of Speech Movement Techniques for Motor Speech Disorders & Articulation Deficits. I’ve been fortunate to get a pre-released version and have learned a lot. At almost 500 pages, it is a remarkable book.
Hope you are having a good year whatever your work setting is!
I’m doing less private workshops recently and more professional development presentations to school districts. If your district is interested, contact me firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Because I want SLPs from all over to use and understand my program, I have a .6 CEU ASHA webinar that is basically the same as my live presentations. Go to the SATPAC website for details. Here is the link: https://satpac.com/workshops/webinar
