True Confessions Episode 57: We learned what childhood apraxia of speech was in grad school, but not really how to diagnosis or treat it.

Today we have Noelle Scolieri, M.S. CCC-SLP in the confessional! Noelle is a pediatric speech-language pathologist who holds children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) near and dear to her heart. In today's episode, we discuss how CAS is unique from other speech disorders, including treatment and diagnosis. Though CAS is a speech disorder, it impacts many other areas of a child’s (and their family’s) life. This podcast conversation provides SLPs with the tools and insight to bring into their clinical experiences with current and future clients.

True Confessions Episode 54: We used to only do language samples during a formal evaluation.

Today we have Dr. Stacey Pavelko in the confessional and are talking about all things language sampling! She is the co-creator of the SUGAR language sample analysis (LSA), a quick, simple and researched way to get the information you need. Before you say ugh and click away - LSA doesn't have to be hard! And it is a critical component not just for differential diagnosis but also for ongoing assessment for students on your caseload. Dr. Stacey breaks down how to make LSA more clinician friendly, and discusses considerations we need to take for eliciting great samples for students of all ages.
