This week, the TWT team presents three live interviews from ASHA with Jill Senner & Matt Baud, Meredith Poore Harold of The Informed SLP, and TWT listener Ashley!
Before the interviews, Rachel and Chris talk about all the great things that happened during Rachel's time speaking, connecting, and learning at ASHA 2018!
Next, we hear from Rachel’s interview at ASHA with Jill Senner & Matt Baud! They briefly discuss Jill & Matt’s talk on parent instruction and partner-augmented input with Kathleen Post, including the importance of pre-testing with video, why we need to move to a collaboration model, and things to get the ball rolling with AAC as a school-based SLP. Jill & Matt were kind enough to share the handouts from ASHA at www.talcaac.com!
For the second of Rachel’s interviews from ASHA, we hear from Meredith Poore Harold, owner of The Informed SLP! She talks about how The Informed SLP (theinformedslp.com) takes journal articles relevant to clinical practice and discusses why the article is important to know about and what the findings were. Meredith also teases a post on her site that details how to get a lot of different academic journal articles for free!
Finally, Ashley, an awesome TWT listener, asks Rachel some questions about AAC! These questions include when to incorporate core words on a new AAC user’s device, when “quick fire” phrases are (and are not) a good idea, and when we should introduce more grammatical morphemes as we model and recast!
