SCHOOL-BASED SLPs! Do NOT miss this one!

Related Service Provision: Mistaking Quantity with Quality
0.6. ASHA CEUs

Have you ever wondered while sitting in an IEP meeting discussing need, how quickly related services add up? Is this more-is-better approach confusing quantity with value; providing isolation of services; and, most importantly, is it educationally relevant and necessary? As we develop IEPs, teams must work together to provide appropriate education for students with disabilities and be aware of the purpose and parameters of providing related services.

0.6 ASHA CEUs!

Patient-centered care has become somewhat of a buzzphrase in our field. We understand the basic concept - of course, the patient should be at the center of our care. But what exactly does it mean and how exactly do we implement this type of care? This course will attempt to define and clarify the nebulous topic of patient-centered care. First, we will explore our own personality traits and how those might impact our individual approach to patient-centered care. Second, we will take a deep dive into motivational interviewing as it relates to patient-centered care. Finally, we will discuss several readily available tools that can help to systematize patient-centered care. At the end of the day, attendees will be equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to feel comfortable providing true patient-centered care in any clinical environment.

Congrats, Dr. O’Bryan!

Congratulations to Dr. Erin O’Bryan, Assistant Professor, on her recent article published in the journal, Aphasiology. The article, titled “’I Wasn’t Just Sitting There’: Empowering Care Partners through the Aphasia-Friendly Reading Approach,” was co-authored by Harold Regier, the spouse of a person with aphasia, and Dr. Katie Strong, Associate Professor at Central Michigan University.

The article describes a new aphasia therapy approach developed by Mr. Regier and piloted by Dr. O’Bryan and her team of graduate student clinicians at the Wichita State University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic.

Harold Regier, Erin O’Bryan, and Katie Strong will give an invited talk about this research at the American Speech-Language Hearing Association Convention in Boston on Friday, November 17th.

The article may be accessed at the following url: https://doi.org/10.1080/02687038.2023.2272956

It can also be downloaded at the following link (the first 50 downloads are free):


Current Status of ASLP-IC

At this time, the ASLP-IC has been enacted into law in 29 states.

The ASLP-IC Commission held its first meeting in January 2022 to establish rules and bylaws to implement the compact. Committees are now meeting on a monthly basis to continue these meetings on a monthly basis. The meetings are open to the public, and you can find more information here.

The process of establishing the commission and operationalizing the compact typically takes 18 months to two years. Once the commission is fully operational and the member states are fully integrated in the compact’s data system, compact privileges to practice will become available.


After winning the KSHA Knowledge Bowl in September, what should this team do next? Take it to ASHA!! CSD graduate students Anne Stukey, Abigail Wallace, Jordan Parker, and Emily Peaney will compete at the national level on Friday, November 17th in Boston, MA, against 7 other teams from across the U.S. Thanks for representing the Tiger Family!!


When should self advocacy start for DHH children??


Little by little - It may look like:
💥Asking for clariciation on what someone said.
💥Asking to move to another room to talk
💥Asking for music or the TV to be turned down while talking
💥Asking for assistive devices (hearing aids, cochlear implants, BAHAs) ON or OFF
💥Asking to be part of a school meeting (parent teacher conference, 504, IEP)
💥Sharing their needs at the school meeting
💥Making doctor appointments, Sharing at a doctor's appointment
💥Explaining their hearing loss to others. Shareing abou what helps and what does not help.
💥Problem Solving
💥Being Self Aware
