It’s the second day of ASHA Convention – you may be starting to feel like your brain is fulling up and your feet are wearing out, but get going early and make the most of this second day at the convention!
I’m only speaking one time today, what a relief!
- Session 1441: Get Out of That Box! Four Creative Mold-Breaking Models of Private Practice
[Friday 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm]
This panel discussion will let you take a peek in my private practice, and the business models of three other ladies! We’ll be sharing how we took our own paths into private practice and how our individual businesses run. Come get a taste of what we’re doing differently, and ask us questions!
Another day of fantastic sessions is ahead of us! Here are a few the ones that stuck out to me for Friday!
- Session 1334: Improving Written Expression Through Strategy Instruction: Managing Executive Function Demands of the Writing Process
[Friday 8:00 am – 10:00 am]
”Executive Function” is one of my keywords I always search the planner for – it’s a topic just emerging in our field over the past few years! My clients all struggle with executive functioning (which is why they come see me!) and writing it a huge factor! Crossing my fingers that this talk is packed with strategies. I always search for terms that specifically speak to the needs of my clients.
- Session 1352: How to Use Five Powerful (& Subtle) Nonverbal Behaviors to Influence & Persuade
[Friday 10:30 – 11:30 am]
As a private practice owner, public speaker and SLP, interacting with the public is my daily job. So this session piqued my interest! I can’t answer the “learner outcomes” currently, and the content is presented in a creative way that makes me want to know more! The fact that this topic is applicable, but “out of the box”, tells me it’s something I probably haven’t heard before!
- Session 1394: Self-Regulation & Executive Functions: What Are They & What Is the Role of SLPs?
[Friday 1:00pm – 3:00pm]
Again, the more executive function talks I go to, the better! I love that this speaks to the role of SLPs, as many people in the general public (and even SLPs themselves) don’t understand. But what I love even better is that they promise you’ll leave with three strategies and have video examples. If they have video examples, that means they’ve actually practiced what they preached!
Double Check Yourself!
Next search the planner by speaker, to make sure you don’t miss favorites!
Example: Sean Sweeney, Sarah Ward, Maryellen Moreau
This helps me make sure I have caught every session by a speaker.
If you hear a great speaker one day, go search the planner to see if
they have any more talks happening this weekend!
What sessions look great on Friday?
– Tara, the Speechy Keen SLP
