Humans of ASHA: Jocelyn Wood

Going through the work week, filled with countless sessions and endless paperwork, it is easy to lose sight of the impact we have on children's lives. Yesterday, I walked into school to see a group of my students "playing speech." One student was pretending to be me, offering praise, reinforcement, and phonemic cues to her "students," who were engaged in an activity following directions. "You're doing great—try again!" I heard her say to her students. I broke into a huge smile, realizing that the work we do every day goes far beyond the therapy sessions and permeates the daily life and interactions of our students.
