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.

True Confessions Episode 53: Our speech rooms are not always a safe space for students.

Today we have Rachel Archambault, M.A. CCC-SLP in the confessional. We first met Rachel when she presented for us at SLP Summit in January 2023, and we were thrilled to continue the discussion on trauma-informed care. No matter what setting we work in as SLPs, we will encounter a client who has experienced trauma. In this episode, we dig into different types of trauma, how we as providers also experience trauma, and how important the language we use is on the well being of our clients, their families and our colleagues. Ultimately we want the speech room to be a safe place, and Rachel helps us explore steps we can take immediately to reduce causing retraumatization, even if it was unintentional.
