Course Description

In this episode, Michelle is joined by Amy, Brittany, and Katie, the fabulous Midwest pediatric-based SLP ladies behind “The Cup of Council” podcast. This episode is all about intersections and overlaps: and how through seeking out and embracing those moments, the licensed SLPs are better equipped to handle the complexity and nuances of the pediatric cases we are called to serve. Join Michelle, Amy, Brittany, and Katie, as they tackle struggles and solutions faced in early intervention, preschool, as well as within the bustling world of a pediatric hospital all through case study analysis. By critically studying our past work, specifically both weaknesses and strengths, we can see how intimately intertwined the settings are with one another…and why interprofessional communication amongst SLPs is key! With four SLPs in tow, this is one swift hour to grow from!


By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:

  • 2 strategies to implement caregiver coaching in early intervention and two evidenced-based resources for caregiver coaching.
  • 2 treatment approaches for apraxia of speech in pediatrics and the role of caregiver coaching with this diagnosis.
  • The role of routines-based intervention for adults with special needs participating in a social-skills program.
