Not too long ago I was completely burned out. I was buried in paperwork, overwhelmed, and felt like I was failing the students with whom I worked. I didn't know how much longer I could feel like I was just getting by instead of practicing the ideal taught to me in graduate school. I knew there had to be a better way.
A colleague and I brainstormed how we could streamline the principles of best practice and reduce paperwork to allow us to focus efforts where they mattered most—with students. We created an online web service that allows therapists to quickly and easily assess students’ strengths and needs, collect baseline data, write measurable goals, and monitor progress using built-in criterion referenced tests and rubrics. As a result, I am more confident in the services I provide to my students and can help busy school-based SLPs everywhere.
