Quick Tip Tuesday!

Time for Quick Tip Tuesday Linky!!!  I am sharing a few tips this week. Link up and share your quick tips or tricks for speech and language!

Every Tuesday, I host a link up called "Quick Tip Tuesday!"  I share 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.

Here are a couple tips for this week...

1. Screening Binders

Create binders for everything (and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g). I have a screening binder for articulation, language, informal measures (along with a large bin container with all my informal measures materials!), I-Team (student intervention team), narrative screenings, etc.  Putting everything in a binder keeps it organized, easy to find and quick to grab when you are short on time (which seems to be most of the time)~!

2. Use Temporary Hooks
I use temporary hooks (because NOTHING else sticks to concrete walls!) to hang my frequently used materials on.  They are right next to my desk and the materials are in a sheet protector with a metal ring.  I also keep my frequently used documents for paperwork there too {e.g. Evaluation/IEP Student Due Dates sheet, District Phone Numbers List, Language Line List (for ELL students), District SPED Lists, etc.}. Right next to you when you need them and always on hand!

3.  Office Supply Organization

I use a tool box (can be bought at any hardware store for around $20!) with printed labels to organize all of my office supplies!  This is AWESOME!  It has helped keep my desk drawers clean and everything I need often is right in front of me.  If you are always modifying and/or creating materials (like I am), this is a must DIY project for your speech room!

I hope you learned something useful today!
