Day 16: Don’t Do It…

Don't Do It! What NOT to wear at the convention! (A tongue in cheek post about fashion no-nos) | Find this post and more by @speechykeenslp at http://www.speechykeenslp.com/blog

While being over dressed for an event is uncomfortable, there is nothing more horrifying than showing up under dressed! Depending on your work setting, “stage in life”, etc. your idea of “appropriate” for a convention may be VERY different than the majority.

So, take some of this as “tongue in cheek”, but also the beginning steps to painting a picture of convention wear for you!

The Three B’s: Boobs, Butt, Belly

While we will all be enjoying the warmth of the Florida sun, let’s not enjoy it TOO much. Keep yourself tucked safely away. Leave the swimsuits, daisy dukes and short short short skirts in your suitcase! This is a professional conference after all and, regardless of your goals, you still want to show that professional side!

High Heels

I know we discussed this in shoes, but I can’t emphasize enough the need to leave them behind. You will be walking MILES every day. Be nice to your feet… though there are rumors of a scavenger hunt. So, be sure to walk past me if you insist on those heels so I can get some points!
Disclaimer: I will be wearing heels to present, but I will have flats stashed in my bag!

Suits and Skirts

Unless you are speaking, interviewing, etc there is no need for a suit. And don’t get me wrong, I’m  huge fan of skirts. But beware… you may end up sitting on the floor in a packed room. And it’s a lot harder to stay appropriate when you’re working on the floor!

Ragged and Ripped

We all know you CAN clean up good, but please don’t make us use our imagination! While this may be  “weekend” off”, use it as an excuse to pull out the cute clothes from the closet, not the worn in ones. Being comfortable is important, but it has it’s limits. Including…

PJs and Yoga Pants

Please… don’t. The speakers and presenters have put hours into preparing for their talks. The organizers have spent a YEAR working to pull together this convention. You can put forth the effort to don real pants in the morning.

Tomorrow: How your outfit should align with your goals…

Day 15: ASHA Attire!

ASHA Attire - what to wear (and not wear) to the convention! | Read this post and more by @speechykeenslp at http://www.speechykeenslp.com/blog

One of the common questions I get is “what should I wear?!”

So this year I will be dedicating an entire week to this topic! Check it out…

Tuesday: Don’t Do It…

Some things are just NOT acceptable at an ASHA Convention. We’ll discuss what outfits are not well received, giving you clear guidelines for what to leave at home or to save for your evening adventures.

Wednesday: Get-Up Goals

Are you interviewing? Networking? Hoping to meet some SLP celebrities? Just “conferencing”? We’ll talk about what to wear for each of these settings, and how dress for a versatile day!

Thursday: “Cultural Differences”

Having lived all over the States, I can tell you that terms such as “casual”, “business casual”, etc are not universal! We’ll discuss what is appropriate for Floridians, and how to find a nice “middle ground” in your wardrobe.

Friday: Accessorize Accurately!

There are some accessorizing rules I have learned the hard way at ASHAs past, like how to stay comfortable yet cute during the long and tiring days of a convention! Don’t miss this post!

Saturday: Beautiful Bling…

Depending on how you “conference”, there are some big “do’s” and “don’ts” with that bling in a conference center. We’ll also include some of our favorite resources for pairing those jewels with your outfits…

Sunday: Totes Ma Gotes!

What bag will you be carrying to the convention each day? Today we’ll talk about considerations for hauling your goodies to and from the convention each day, as well as some of our favorite bags for the long days and late nights of convention weekend!

What are you wearing to ASHA?

Day 12: Friday at ASHA ‘14!

Coem see what sessions I'll be seeing on day 2 of #ASHA14 | Fidn this post and more by @speechykeenslp over at http://www.speechykeenslp.com/blog

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!

My Sessions
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!

More Sessions

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?

Day 11: Thursday at ASHA ‘14!

Coem see what sessions I've picked for Thursday, and what were factors in my selection! Even a bonus tip for making your way through the on-line planner| Read this post and more by @speechykeenslp over at htttp://www.speechykeenslp.com/blog

It’s the first day of ASHA Convention! Jump out of bed and hit the ground running! Grab some caffeine on your way into the convention and get ready for an Amazing day! Come take a peek at what I am looking forward to on day one of ASHA ’14.

Opening session
Arrive early, as the opening session is always packed and often fills up well before starting time! Thins years opening session will focus Harry Bellefonte and his work on advocacy and social justice. Read more here.

My Sessions
I’m speaking two times on day one! Whew – That’s one way to get the weekend started! Here’s a sneak peek at my two talks and what I’ll be sharing…

  • Session 1115: Camp Confidence: From Zero to Hero
    [Thursday 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm]
    This talk comes straight from the heart. It started as a Pinterest perfect plan that quickly turned me on my head and sent me searching the hearts of my students. I’ll be sharing the research out about bullying and shame, explaining why it is our jobs to talk about these topics, and how you can create a therapy space that builds self awareness elf confidence and sends them out your doors courageous! I will send you on your way with ideas to implement Monday morning!
  • Session 1212: iPad to iPlay 2.0: Teaching Play Through Apps for Preschoolers
    [Thursday 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm]
    I started the series ‘iPad to iPlay’ last year at ASHA, and received a great response! So, in order to cover more apps, I expanded it into two sessions. This session will be apps for preschoolers and early elementary students. I’ll show you how to take the most popular apps out there and work them into every aspect of your therapy sessions. You will be able to go into work on Monday and use these activities immediately – I’m all about making my talks applicable for you back in the real world!

More Sessions

Searching through the planner is daunting, yet you can find some real hidden gems in there! Here are some that caught my attention, and some tried and true speakers that I look forward to listening to as well! Here are some sessions on my planner, and a few tips for what to look for when selecting sessions!

  • Session 1006: Everything the School-Based SLP Needs to Know About Assessing Social Communicative Functioning
    [Thursday 10:30 – 12:30 pm]
    My clients are all individuals who struggle with social communication and executive functioning. For anyone who works with that population, they now it is very difficult to assess them with standardized tests. The description of this session looks like it could give me some key information on the assessment aspect, as well as help in talking to parents about common core! I’m always looking at descriptions to see if they indicate that the material will be something I’ll be able to implement right away.
  • Session 1007: Implementation Science & Social Thinking®: Discovering Evidence in Our Own Backyard
    [Thursday 10:30 – 12:30 pm]
    I’ve heard the Social Thinking ® team talk many times, so I’m always looking for their new presentations. Looking at the learner outcomes, it seems like this session may have information that I can pass along to my families! The intermediate level means it won’t be giving me the basics and instead be speaking closer to the level that I’m currently at in this topic!
  • Session 1052: He’s Just Lazy! Helping Students With High Functioning Autism Meet Common Core State Standards
    [Thursday 1:30pm – 2:30pm]
    The creative name caught my attention first – a creative name often indicates a creative speaker! Being a phrase I’ve heard all too often about my executive functioning clients (“He’s lazy!”), it also makes me think the speaker really has been in the trenches with my types of clients. The learner outcomes make me stop and think “Yes! I want to know more on this and/or be able to explain this better to clients!”
  • Session 1146: Building Resilience Through Social Thinking®
    [Thursday 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm]
    More Social Thinking ® content – and by a great speaker. Not only is Ryan a great speaker, she is a wonderful person. I’ve had the joy of getting to know her personally and she is just the sweetest. I know she has a heart for this topic, so I know it will be a talk filled with passion. The learner outcomes on this topic are ones that align with my philosophy and passion for my own clients.

Overwhelmed by the planner?

My first step is to go day by day, one session type at a time!
Example: Thursday, 1 hour sessions.

This helps me browse through everything at least once,
and pull out the first round that sticks out to me!


What sessions are you planning to go see on Thursday?

Day 8: Setting Your Schedule

ASHA ‘14 Convention: A How-To Guide

Setting Up Your Schedule at #ASHA14! | Come see how I set up my schedule for the convention on my blog: http://www.speechykeenslp.com/blog #slpeeps #slpbloggers

You’ve received your ASHA planner, you’ve begun finding sessions that peak your interest. There are so many to look through, how will you ever decide? And how do you even begin to start building your schedule?! Here is peek into what work apps for me…

Picking a format

I like to set my schedule up outside of the ASHA planner. I like having more control, the details I want at a glance, on and off line access, color coding… What can I say? I am a detailed oriented person!

To get my schedule the way I want, I create a spreadsheet in Google docs. This gives me the ability to edit on the fly from any computer while also letting me access it from my phone, save it to my device and/or print it out.

Setting up

My first column on my spreadsheet is time. I start it at 7am and end it at 8:30pm. I typically like to do this in 30 minute chunks, since that is the amount of time between sessions.

The next three columns are for my first, second and third choices for that time frame. I don’t always fill up all three columns for a time slot, while other times it helps me narrow it down to JUST three choices.

Why would I need that many choices?

  • The session you want has filled up and the doors are locked.
  • The session you want has been cancelled/withdrawn
  • The session is just too far away and you are too tired
  • The session you went to first is horrid. It is actually expected that you walk out of a less than stellar talk. Just be sure to make that choice quick  as you need to be at the majority of the session to earn the CEUs.
  • You heard a great speaker and want to make them your FIRST priority for future talks this weekend!

The forth column I label “posters” and put any poster sessions that look interesting. I place up to 4 in the time slot that they are “open” for CEUs. More on this in a few days.

The final column I label “exhibit hall” and put the hours for the exhibit hall.  Nothing is more disappointing than to finally have time for the hall and realize they closing in 10 minutes!

Check It Out!

Click here to see a blank version of my schedule – feel free to download or “save as” to your own Google Drive and use! At the end of this week I’ll let you see who has made it onto my planner!

How are you planning out your weekend?

Day 6: Peel and Stick!

ASHA ‘14 Convention: A How-To Guide


Peel & Stick - how to save yoruself from writer's cramp at convention! | Read more at: http://www.speechykeenslp.com/blog #slpeeps #ASHA14

One thing conferences are known for is writer’s cramp. Even if you are typing notes, there are still plenty of opportunities to write down your name, email, address, etc. Some speakers will pass around a clipboard to collect emails for slides, handouts, etc. In the exhibit hall some booths are able to scan your badge for your information, but many don’t use that technology yet. So you’ll be whipping out your pen for contest entries, newsletter sign ups, notification email lists… You get the picture! Don’t miss out on key opportunities because no one can read your writing by Saturday afternoon. And don’t waste time re-writing this information 50x.

The answer: Create mailing labels with your information neatly typed. Stick the sheet of stickers in your convention bag and whip them out at a moments notice! Stick it to that contest entry form or mailing list and keep moving!

The information I include on each label is:

  • My name (including credentials)
  • Place of work/age group
  • Website/blog/twitter handle (if you have any)
  • Address
  • Phone number (usually my cell,as sometimes they want to reach you before the end of convention!)
  • E-mail address (one you will be checking during convention)

One sheet should be enough. As I mentioned before, many booths have adopted the technology to scan your badge. And I typically only see about three to five speakers passing the clipboard. But when you do use them, it’s a life saver. And you look like a genius!
My best friend used my mailing label tip and won a big screen TV one year.! They called her before we left convention to see if she wanted to take it with or have it shipped. Needless to say, this tip was a “winner” (pun intended).

Get to printing! Don’t have any mailing labels lying around? Add them to your Amazon order with your battery and power cord!

Day 4: Additional Accessories

ASHA ‘14 Convention: A How-To Guide

ABM_1413866913

I’m all about making my life easier at convention. I want to get the most out of each day, so any sort of hassle takes away from the experience. I take all my notes digitally, as well as live tweet every session I attend. Up until last year, I had a phone with a keyboard and could out tweet anyone. Well, the era of the keyboard phones has passed, so I upgraded to an S4. I was in total panic about trying to tweet from a touchscreen. I started looking at ways to minimize this problem, and fell in love with this beauty…

keyboard

Why I love it:

  • This Anker keyboard connects via bluetooth, so I can type to my phone or my tablet device.
  • The battery life is amazing, I bet it could last me the whole weekend of convention if I forgot to charge it!
  • They keys have a little resistance, so you get the tactile feedback when pressing a key.
  • The keys are higher than the edge of the keyboard (not so with many iPad keyboards) – so my hands can hangover when moving back and forth across the keys.
  • It’s super thin – so it takes up almost NO space in my convention bag!
  • It charges via micro USB – same as my Android phone, battery pack… no extra cords!
  • It costs $30… wow!

 

I also like to add this beauty to my Amazon order…

stand

If I’m lucky enough to have a surface to prop up my device, it is rarely big enough for my iPad’s case stand. This tiny gem let’s me set it to any angle, prop up my tablet or device and then type away without it falling. I’ve even propped it on a seat next to me or on the floor, with my keyboard on my lap! It’s great for on the flight to convention, during sessions, at lunch or breaks when I can find a seat… I use this ALL the time. It is even great on the kitchen counter when I need to read a recipe or watch a show on Netflix while doing the dishes!

Neither of these are as critical as your battery pack and power strip purchase. But they will make your life so much easier during convention – and afterwards as well!

Day 2: POWER UP!

ASHA ‘14 Convention: A How-To Guide

Power Up! | Part of the "ASHA 14 Convention: A How-To Guide" Series! Here is a surefire way to keep all of your devices alive and kicking throughout the long days (and nights) at the convention! #asha14 #slpeeps

**This is a repost from the past few years, with a few updates! **

Power can be hard to come by in a convention center. Not every room will have an outlet along the wall. And even if it does, there is not promise you’ll get a seat nearby. But your devices will be your lifeline at the convention! Contests sent out via twitter will win you free things. Lunch and dinner plans will also be sent out via twitter, facebook or text. Taking notes on a device will be great, as well as snapping pictures of important information! So, what do you do when it’s only noon and all of your devices are already dying? Pull out your battery pack!

Three years ago, before ASHA ‘11, I posted a quick video about why I love the iGo for days when I need my devices to last all day. I used my iGo for ASHA ’11, as well as for trips, long days of work and more. when I upgraded my phone, it stopped charging my devices. It could keep them from dying but the battery never increased and, once my iGo was dead, my device continues to go dead. So a few years ago I began researching what I needed in a battery. I found two key elements I needed to watch out for..

Two Key Elements:

mAh – A measure of a battery’s total capacity. The higher the number (ex. 600 mAh, 1,500 mAh) the more charge a battery can hold and usually, the longer a battery will last under a certain load.[source]

Amps – A measure of electric current flow. One ampere (amp) will flow when one volt is applied across a resistance of one ohm. [source]

As it turns out, my iGo only put out ~ half an amp through the USB ports. For newer phones, this is NOT enough to actually charge. Many of the newer phones require at least 2 amps to actually charge. Some research on the best sellers over at Amazon shows some definite leaders…


Details:

Sneak Peak:
New Trent
IMP120D iCarrier
12,000 mAh
2Amp/1Amp Dual Ports
$33.95
jackery Jackery®
Giant +
12,000 mAh
2.1Amp/1Amp Dual Ports
$39.95
anker Anker®
2nd Gen Astro E4
13,00 mAh
1 port: Up to 3 amps
$29.99

After much consideration a few years ago,  I purchased the New Trent and LOVE it. I actually own two, and BOTH will be coming with to ASHA with me this year. Someone is always asking to borrow a charge from me, so now I’ll have more than enough to go around.

Amazon lists it’s charging power as Apple iPad >120% battery life – Apple iphone 5:> 600% battery life  – Smartphones (andriod): >600% battery life. I strongly recommend getting one with TWO ports for charging. Either share that spare port with a friend or charge two devices at once.

The Jackery ® has my attention … but only because it comes in orange…

Wait to place that order! You may want to also purchase a few more items I’ll mention this week…

Will you be bringing an external battery to stay charged up and connected at ASHA? Which one do you like?
