As a school-based SLP, we have to assess and treat a wide range of speech and language disorders across many different ages. That is a tough job! It’s hard to stay up to date with best practices for treating all these areas especially when you haven’t had a lot of experience with specific treatment areas. So, when you get a student with a disorder that you aren’t as confident with treating, it can feel a bit overwhelming. In this episode, I talk all about how I pushed through treating a student with apraxia after not having a child with this type of disorder on my caseload (13 years in and this was my first case.) Even though I attended professional development over the years about apraxia, the information doesn’t really “stick” until you have a client/child to apply that knowledge into practice.
