Do you need help with goal selection, writing and management?
My guest, Maureen Wilson, and I are going over this in today’s episode and giving out some valuable tips to benefit you and your students.
Maureen has been a school based SLP for 10 years. She authors the blog, The Speech Bubble SLP. Maureen has a TpT store of the same name where she creates comprehensive resources to empower and equip SLPs to provide therapy with confidence.
She speaks all over the country about her passion which is literacy based therapy. Recently, she launched a web-based app, SWIVEL Scheduler, that solves that goal management and session planning problem that has bothered SLPs for years.
In This Episode You’ll Discover:
- The importance of baselines for goals
- Recommended materials to use for baselines
- Goals versus objectives and benchmarks
- Why you don’t need to have a lot of goals set for students at the same time
- The importance of working on base skills
- Simplifying language of goals
- What to do if your student did not meet their goal
- Why someone should proofread the goals you write
- How to keep track of goals appropriately
Remember, goals drive everything, so you need to be thoughtful! Don’t get caught up in the wording of your goal or having too many! What’s important is that they are student-friendly, parent-friendly and that you can manage them well!
I hope you feel more confident taking on goal setting, writing and management after listening to this episode with Maureen. Her tips are so helpful!
