ASHA Workload Calculator

The ASHA Workload Calculator: Telepractice Edition [XLS] is designed to help SLPs identify the amount of time spent preparing, learning and using technology to deliver speech-language services, and meet federal, state, and district mandates.

Workload consists of all the activities required to effectively manage caseload. The ASHA Workload Calculator is designed to help school-based SLPs identify the amount of time spent on direct and indirect services, compliance, including paperwork, and other daily activities. Gain insights on how your weekly scheduled hours compare to the number of actual hours spent performing each task and see a breakdown of your workload activities.  Learn more about the ASHA Workload Calculator [PDF] in this PPT presentation that highlights ASHA’s position on workload, background information and implementation.

    The monthly worksheet allows you to identify workload responsibilities over the course of a typical month.

Caseload refers to the number of students served by school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and other professionals through direct and/or indirect service delivery options. Students on an SLPs caseload typically receive speech and language services within the special education or other instructional settings in schools through the following:

  • Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
  • Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSPs)
  • 504 plans
  • MTSS/RTI

While the number of students on an SLP’s caseload is a critical piece of a school-based SLPs work, it does not constitute all the responsibilities of that practitioner. In conjunction with the ASHA Workload Calculator, the newly developed ASHA Workload Analysis Calculator can help school-based SLPs identify the amount of time they spend addressing workload activities for each student on their caseload. School-based providers can also gain insights on actual hours spent providing direct and indirect services; tasks/activities that are needed to meet compliance requirements; and the completion of other activities for students on your caseload outside the mandated service hours on students' IEPs. The ASHA Workload Analysis Calculator will help you to see a breakdown of your activities for each student on your caseload.
