It's been about 5 weeks, and yet, I've only just finished week 1. In true fashion, Speech Language Pathology is mainly behind-the-scenes stuff. I've been busting my butt getting through the licensure needed for all the states I'll be working in, and those State Boards of SLP do NOT expedite for anyone ;)
My first week was spent with a brick and mortar elementary school, which was awesome. Maybe I'm biased because I lean towards early childhood education, but having only Kindergarten through 2nd grade clients is awesome! I know I'll only begin to touch on the dreaded /r/, and yet, I'll see a heckuva lot of progress with those other pesky sounds!
In short, it was a week of how-do-you-do's and nice-to-meet-ya's and hey-your-speech-teacher-lives-about-300-miles-away-so-she-only-will-see-you-in-the-computer's. Little minds were blown!
Other than my standard platter of introduction questions, we just gathered baselines and played some short reinforcer games. (Looking at you, FunBrain)
Hopefully, I'll be back sooner next time, because I'll actually be doing some teletherapy!
