The TWT team is excited to bring you more interviews from ASHA – this week from Jenna Rayburn Kirk of Speech Room News, Marlene Cummings, and Matt Hott of the SpeechScience Podcast!
Before the interviews, you won’t want to miss Rachel and Chris’s discussion of coordination between school and private SLPs! What happens if there is disagreement about the best AAC solution? Why do we need to communicate and come to agreement about this? How can we collaborate more effectively? How can even parents be a roadblock to collaboration? Rachel and Chris cover solutions you can use right away to help coordinate better with your peers, including scheduling apps and feature matching meetings! They also discuss strategies for getting along with people we disagree with, such as finding something in his or her idea to validate.
Next, Rachel sits down at ASHA with the always entertaining Jenna Rayburn Kirk! Jenna and Rachel have a lively discussion about how ASHA has changed over the past few years, including an increased awareness of bloggers, increased utilization of social media, and more interest in online resources! Jenna also discusses why she thinks Teachers Pay Teachers has become so popular, and why services that provide clinicians with useful research, like The Informed SLP, are so important!
Following Jenna’s interview, Rachel interviews Marlene Cummings, AAC specialist from Oakland Schools in Michigan! Marlene discusses why AAC specialists can’t be the “expert” any longer, and why it is so important for us to “share the wealth” of AAC with as many people as we can! Marlene shares a few ideas from her presentation, including supporting professionals directly in the classroom, coordinating teacher-directed vocabulary instruction, and more!
Finally, Matt Hott of the SpeechScience Podcast calls into ASHA to interview Rachel about her favorite parts of ASHA, and what her plans are for ASHA 2020 in Orlando!
