You thought you could figure this out on your own, but now realize that being a school-based SLP involves loads of paperwork, minimal prep times, and very little outside support.
I am a clinical doctoral student and have one of the longest-running blogs in the for speech therapists. My goal is to help SLPs become organized, feel confident, and empower themselves to work to their full potential. I have spoken at state and national conferences (including ASHA) and been featured multiple times in the ASHA Leader.
I’ve created The Organized SLP because everywhere I look, I see smart, enthusiastic, and dedicated speech pathologists that love their students.
They are people like you with the education, passion, and drive to make a difference in the lives of others – if only they could establish organized systems, effective routines, and planning skills to minimize the time they spend on paperwork.
I came into the field of speech pathology completely by accident and was completely lost when I entered my first job. Then I moved states and was lost yet again. I was exhausted and overwhelmed.
I created The Organized SLP in order to empower others to become organized and to help them develop efficient habits and routines for themselves. I don’t want everyone to have to go through the trial and error that I have experienced for the last 18 years. There are no other online organizational courses for speech pathologists. This is your chance to improve your skills and feel prepared for the upcoming year.
I want you to feel that your time and energy goes into children and not paperwork. I want you to leave work at a reasonable hour and never take work home with you. I want to you to feel confident, prepared, and assured. I want you to be an organized SLP.
“Module 1 is a super practical, step-by-step way to help you get organized for the start of the year. It all stems from your organizational goals and how you want to improve. Then, additional lessons provide useful ways to help you reach them. I love all of the tools and materials that were introduced throughout the module. They will make a huge difference in my organization, and ultimately help me to make the most use of my time.”
“I wish I could have taken Module 2 when I was a first year SLP. It would have saved me so much time and helped me to feel not quite so overwhelmed! Even though I’m no longer a first year SLP, I have taken away countless practical ways to improve beginning of the year tasks, such as setting up student files, preparing teachers and parents, and scheduling. These lessons are a game changer and make me so excited to start a new school year to implement all the ideas and strategies I’ve learned!”
“This module helped me learn to break down the lesson planning process so it does not feel so overwhelming. Often times, lesson planning gets put on the back burner for me with all of the paperwork. I am excited to use these tricks and ideas so I don’t feel so frazzled throughout the week, and I have a plan ready to go!”
“Why didn’t anyone show me how to do this before??? This is going to really help me be a better SLP.”
“This module will really help ease your nerves about the IEP process. It provides so many great resources that allow you to approach IEPs in a calm and confident way!”
The Organized SLP Facebook community is one of the highlights of the course. You get to share in the joys and challenges that come with being a school SLP. Homework assignments will be posted to this group so that you can get encouragement and feedback from other students.
“The community the Facebook group creates another layer of utility to the course. Although I am generally not a big Facebook user, I loved seeing the perspectives other people brought to the group, as well as what they created for the Lessons.”
This course also comes with tons of free materials from my store. In the lesson-planning module, you get to have a “shopping spree” to create an additional wish list of products from my store. You cannot beat this incredible bonus offer!
“The materials and the Facebook group have been the most valuable to me. Getting to hear from everyone and how they’re using the materials is a great way to get motivated to re-organize your own life.”
I’ve designed The Organized SLP so that you can get access to all of the guidance, information, and encouragement that you need to get organized without scouring through thousands of blog posts and forums.
