Episode 77: Guillain-Barré Syndrome Recovery, Cognitive Impacts on Motor Speech, Occupational Privilege Taxes, and Getting Outside
Matt, Michael, and Michelle are all back in the chairs this week. Matt had a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese, Michael finally saw Avengers: Endgame, and Michelle is preparing to work with horses in therapy. What impact does cognitive load have on motor speech production? Increased cognitive processing can impede the speed in which motor production happens. The group discuss what this may look like in therapy. Tennessee has recently repealed 22 million dollars in taxes by removing the $400 Occupational Privilege Tax for SLPs and AuDs. How does our multiple licensures, accreditations, and associations affect our ability to practice. Lastly, your kids are spending too much time inside. How long should they be outside? Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of its peripheral nervous system. Carly Stoltenberg, M.S., CCC-SLP was working as an SLP for the past 20 years when at the age of 46 her live changed over-night. She tells her story about being intubated, using AAC, and her recovery.
