September Link Up

Hello and welcome to a link up party!  

All Y'all Need has their September Link-Up posted, and this month they're asking speech-language pathologists to post about what type of student population that they are seeing this fall, what they are excited about, what they are prepping for, and what they are trying to get done.  It's a busy time of the year for sure, so this link up was a good one to get us thinking and organizing more.  Here's ours!   My responses are below - enjoy! 





SCHOOLING: Shanda and I continue to see a wide variety of clients.  She is treating elementary to middle school kiddos during her two telepractice days, and children from the age of 2 to adults to the age of 62 at the outpatient therapy clinic where we both work.  I am treating children and adults at the speech clinic.  I love treating all populations so that is why working at an outpatient clinic is perfect for me!  I treat the age group of 2 years to 102, but I wrote 92 as that was the oldest client that I've had within the last two years.

EXCITED: Well, we don't want to toot our horns too much, but Shanda and I are both receiving contracts to have some of our documents published. We are SUPER EXCITED about this!!  I would like to leave more details, but we better not for now as the documents are in production and we don't want to break any contract rules at the time.  So, stay tuned during this fall to find out more about this cool new adventure in our lives and to find out where our therapy documents will be published.

PREPPING: We are printing, laminating, cutting and organizing for this and last weeks themed unit of "Back To School" and next weeks themed unit featuring the fun book called "The Gruffalo".  We had a lot of materials to prep because we had made our own 100 + page speech, language and literacy documents for these two themed units. We are having fun seeing the student's nice reactions to the tasks and games that we have created, and we are happy to report that we have been getting at a large range of receptive and expressive language goals, articulation, reading & spelling goals during these fun themed sessions too! 

TRYING: Well, it just hit us that our blog anniversary was coming up very soon!  We wrote our first blog post last year on 10/4/12.  We are in the process of gathering volunteers to write guest posts and we are looking for cool things to give away to our awesome blog followers.  Please let us know if you would like to help us out by the way!  We are featuring posts about using themes in therapy during our blog anniversary week in the first week of October 2013. Please email us at: shandagaunt@gmail.com if you are interested in helping us out.  Thanks so much if you do!!

Ok, that's it!  We hope you enjoyed reading our September link up and thanks so much for stopping by the blog today!  When you are done reading this post, please don't forget to follow the rest of the link up party.  All of the links can be found over at All Y'all Need.  It's a lot of fun!!

Sincerely,
Manda & Shanda, SLP's
