12: No More Insanity!

SLP No More Insanity


Some SLPs like change, others don't – how about you? Have you been trying the same strategies with your students year after year? Are these strategies giving you amazing results?


In this episode, let’s talk about why doing the same thing, again and again, is INSANITY. We will identify the underlying reasons why our students are not making progress when it comes to vocabulary, inferencing or sequencing despite all their practice. I will also share how you can do things differently to achieve a breakthrough.


If you want to embrace change and let go of insanity, don't miss this episode!




In this episode you’ll discover: 


  • Why you need to change your strategies regularly
  • How to probe for what your students are struggling with
  • What to teach before discussing the main idea, sequencing or inferential questions
  • Teaching students how to self-check
