Quick Tip Tuesday!

Every Tuesday, I will be hosting a link up called "Quick Tip Tuesday!"  I will be sharing a quick tip(s) related to the speech and language world.  It may be a tip about organization, how to do therapy or tips related to evaluations. My goal for this link up is to share information in a short-read format, which is helpful and can make a Speech-Language Pathologists more efficient.

 1. Create Evaluation Checklists
For every student I evaluate (SPL Only and Cumulative), I put an "Evaluation Checklist" in their file.  As I am going through the evaluation process, I come back to the checklist and check items off as I complete them.  This is a great way to stay organized!  It helps me to know exactly what I need to do next for the evaluation paperwork! I also copy it on a bright green color so it is easily found!

2. Use Screening Forms & Sticky Notes

I also use a ton of sticky notes for my screenings.  If a student does not pass a screening, I will put a sticky note on the front of their file and state the screening results and if classroom interventions have been set up or not.  I also put a "SPL Screening" sheet in the general education file, send a copy to parents and keep a copy for my screening records.

I hope you learned something useful today!

If you are linking up, please don't forget to include the picture above and a link back to www.schoolslp.blogspot.com in your post.
