The gang is back together for Episode 102 and the show has a new format. The show was recorded the night of the Emmy’s and the evening of learning about the passing of Kobe Bryant. The crew comes to terms with the loss of an athlete and the role the Grammy’s have in letting us know we are getting older. On the show this week, Michelle sat down the author, Kari Knutson, of the article than ran in the ASHA Leader about crying in your car. Is training social skills dehumanizing? Also, can you predict Dyslexia? We also have our SSPOD Shoutout, the SSPOD Due Process, the ASHA Spotlight, and the SSPOD Hot Take.
The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7.
SSPOD Shoutout: We want to know your #SSPODSHOUTOUT, like Kerry David, the owner of Join Hope Speaks. Kerry trains providers and gives therapy to those who need it in areas that may not have the resources.
SSPOD Due Process: Do you have a complaint or need to vent, then you want to participate in the #SSPODDUEPROCESS. This week’s due process comes from Talking With Tech’s host, Rachel Madel. She is upset about the gatekeeping involved in getting AAC devices to our students who need it.
Article #1: Dyslexia in children may be predictable. A study running in the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research look at the link of Phonological Awareness and the prediction of Dyslexia in Children. What do the results mean for your therapy setting?
Article #2: Some have called ABA therapy just dog training for humans. What does training social skills really look like? Can it be dehumanizing? How can we change our therapy settings to be more open to all of our patients and students.
Interview: In the ASHA Leader, an article called “Whats EQ Got to Do with It?” Kari Knutson wrote an article looking at stress management. Kari’s first article in the ASHA Leader was edited and Kari found out the hard-way what an editors pen can do when the term “Cry in your car” was left in the article with no perspective or other information given. Kari talks the process of this article and her original intention about stress management techniques.
ASHA Spotlight: Its time to look to your colleagues and get them nominated for the 2020 ASHA Awards. Make sure you are showing ASHA who deserves to be nominated.
Hot Take: Matt takes the first hot take and takes aim at Internet Bullies.
