E49: We didn't always use a diagnosis to drive the treatment bus
In this episode, we chat with the amazing Cari Ebert about her journey in the field of speech pathology as well as her SLP Summit course (How to Prepare for Speech Therapy Using Principles of Motor Learning)! Cari gave us several nuggets of information, including how she made the shift from working from a strengths-based vs. deficits based approach with Autistic children, how SLPs need to use a diagnosis to drive the treatment bus, and how to assess and treat CAS (childhood apraxia of speech) for all children (including those with other diagnoses and children who are teenagers). We could have talked to her for hours! This episode is a must listen-to.

E48: We have written ableist goals for Autistic students.
We have the amazing Rachel Dorsey in the confessional, and we are so excited! We've had the chance to collaborate with Rachel several times in the past, and each time we speak to her we always say we wish it had been recorded, because she is a wealth of knowledge! In this episode, we chat about her recent SLP Summit presentation on writing neurodiversity affirming IEP goals and the difficulty with sustaining masking behavior in Autistic individuals (which is what we traditionally see written in IEP goals).

We are thrilled to finally have our SLP bestie, Shontaye Glover, in the confessional with us to talk about all the things!

It's the first episode of Season 4 and a new school year!
