Excellent! I do my scheduling in much the same way as you do, Jenn. I use an editable schedule that I keep on my desktop and can change at a moments notice and reprint it to slip into my attendance notebook. I find going to the teacher personally helps build trust and collaboration especially if you are new or new to that building. Thank you for the info!
Great spreadsheet! Thanks for sharing. I use one that's similar, but I'll add some features from yours (actual minutes scheduled). Great tips on prioritizing caseload in the scheduling process.
Thank you for providing your information about how to manage my caseload. I am a new school SLP. I do wish there was more information about what students I should group and not group. It was a bit frustrating when the handouts were not attached before the session started. I understand that it might have been due to technology, but still it was a little disappointing because then I was having to scramble to write down the slides for the first 15 to 20 minutes of the session. Thanks--Jamie
Lots of practical suggestions!
I appreciated the information on advocacy and the pep talk about standing up for myself!
that was great. thanks for sharing all of your tips! great timing just before school starts.
There were several of us who were not able to get the course slides for the presentation. The moderator reiterated that all we had to do is to go to the course page and download it but there was no tab for the handouts! I think the moderator needs to send out a handout copy to all participants of this course. The handouts were very clear and unlike some of the others did not revert to using white lettering on a light background, making the small print of the 6 slide page very hard to read.
Great advice and excellent resources! I cannot wait to add some of the organizational tools to my routine this fall! Fantastic course!
She says she's not organized. Her organization strategies give me hope!
Great suggestions and explanations. I have yearly list for IEP meetings and 3 Year Reevals and keep a running "to do" list that I update every week as my paper brain that I put away with my computer everyday since I have more than one building. Having monthly sheets makes sense since kids seem to move in and move out and sometimes it is difficult to keep track of what needs to be done.
I loved the suggestions about re-visiting an activity that you did before, with the focus on determining if they retained the information previously taught. I also liked the idea of using one book for the entire day, with differentiated activities for student's needs.
So glad that you addressed SpEd Laws/eligibility criteria as a way to manage caseloads. It's never fun to inherit a huge caseload full of kiddos that no longer meet eligibility. Thank you!
This presentation was FULL of great, innovative ideas and will be extremely useful this upcoming school year! It was easy to follow & interesting, as well!
Great information! I am creating my own schedule for the first time in the schools as I took the position mid year during last school year. Great tips and I have a list ready and praying for success!
Fantasitc! Thank you!
It would have been nice to have the handouts prior to the start of the session.
The information was well-presented and very applicable. There was an issue with handouts not being available before the presentation. The handouts were easy to read thanks to the size of the slide on the paper and the color of the lettering.
I really loved the presentation. I can't believe some of the numbers that people shared of their caseloads! It really helped me think about organization and dismissal especially. Thank you!
Great info about managing your caseload. Lots of good tips.
Really practical and very helpful. I love what you said about "required" vs. "benefit".
Great, useful information! Thank you!
Thank you Jenn for the great ideas!
Great information shared. There were things talked about service pattern and overall organization I have been thinking about a lot this summer.
Great information. Some were just good reminders of things I know I should be doing to more effectively manage the caseload and my time. Thanks for sharing.
