Day 13: Saturday at ASHA ‘14

Daily Picks: Saturday at #ASHA14! Come see what sessions are on my schedule this year at convention | Read this post and more by @speechykeenslp at

It’s the final day of convention – you are exhausted, your brain is about to explode with new information and yet you wish we had at least one more day before returning to reality. Don’t let exhaustion rob you from this final day of experiences! You’re almost done!

My Sessions
My final talk is today – and the second installment of “iPad to iPlay”.

  • Session 1768: iPad to iPlay 2.0: Teaching Play Through Apps for Elementary Through Middle School
    [Saturday 2:30 – 3:30]
    This is part 2 to my talk from Thursday – and I have packed a LOT of apps into this talk! We’ll cover eight apps and at least three activities per app that you can use as soon as you go back to the “real world”. It’s a good mix of table top activities and gross motor activities to keep your clients engaged and learning.

More Sessions

The final day, so bittersweet! Also one of the busiest days, so be sure to get to sessions early if you think they will be popular!

  • Session 1609: Standing Up to Ridicule: Using Social Language Concepts With Students Who Are Bullied, Bystanders, & Tormentors
    [Saturday 8:00 am – 10:00 am]
    Bullying is at the heart of my “camp confidence” talk and something my students deal with daily. My research on the topic has shown that most schools are doing it wrong.  I look for talks that compliment my passions and give me the opportunity to make connections with similarly minded therapists.
  • Session 1705 : Top 20 Telepractice Techniques & Materials: Bridging Table-Top Skills With Telepractice Competencies to Engage Clients
    [Saturday 1:00pm – 2:00pm]
    My clinic is 100% telepractice currently. This means that, while I am interested in this topic, I am also very experienced. Most of the sessions on this topic this year leave me feeling “eh, I know all about that…” This one has me tentatively excited for some new application ideas. If you are “hopeful” about a topic, GO! But be sure to pick a back-up if it disappoints.

Set your priorities!

When you begin setting your schedule, set which sessions are your
#1, #2 and #3 choice – they all start to blend together by the end.

During Convention, I change the color of the cell for sessions I attended.
This makes it easier to remember session information when entering my CEUs.

What session are you looking forward to most on Saturday?

Tomorrow I’ll GIVE you my completed Google schedule, and talk about some booths I plan on hitting in the exhibit hall!
