Over the years I have heard a lot of interesting stories about the rooms speech pathologists are given. For my very first episode, I thought it was only fitting to share about my first speech rooms (yes, it is plural). Starting my CF year, I covered two sites and had some very interesting speech rooms. Listen to my story and advice for SLPs that may be in the same boat I was during my CF year. Although, my speech rooms weren’t ideal my first year, it has helped me have a perspective shifts when I have received a new assignment and new speech rooms.
