Great program with wonderful information! Love all the information presented. Would have been great to have an easier way to write notes into the handouts, for those of us without easy access to a printer during summer.

I took a lot of good information from this. Thank you

This was a GREAT presentation. I couldn't believe how fast an hour can go by when Nicole is providing helpful information. I loved the tips and the examples that were included throughout the presentation. Thank you. Jamie Connell
Nicole provided some really great tips for staying organized with some great visuals as well! these will definitely help reduce the stress level!
Excellent presentation- good information, great resources, and Nicole's smile and easy going manner while still presenting "down to earth" truths were all wonderful!
Nicole offered some great ideas, but several of them won't necessarily work for my situation. Sounded like that was the case for a number of other therapists as well.
Very well-presented and organized. Would be quite helpful for in-person SLPs in schools! I was especially interested in how she prioritizes her different "categories." It definitely has inspired me to try to figure out how to do 5 minute artic in telepractice!
Great tips! I feel more confident walking into a brand new school this upcoming school year!
my district offers the exact same schedule format and while it does take extended time to complete it initially, it is definetely organized and easy to revise throughout the year as kids are dismissed/move/enter Nice presentation
Great scheduling tips!
This course provided several tips that are going to be really helpful this year when I create my schedule. I wish I'd seen this before I started two years ago!
Great information, well-organized. I am feeling more positive about making my schedule next week! Thank you

AWESOME COURSE!! In such a short amount of time I learned a great amount of information. I cannot wait to implement all the helpful tools I received for this upcoming school year. Thank you so much Nicole!
Excellent! Thank you!
Excellent course. Very informative and practical : )
Some great ideas and tools. Our district has different rules and guidelines about the children we can work with (they have to have an IEP) and the time they are seen, but overall really helpful!
Great for SLPs starting off!
Love the organized excel spreadsheet!
Most excellent information in breaking down the steps to make scheduling a success!
Loved all the examples and tips!
Some really great tips. Worth the time.
Great presentation and very organized. Love the spreadsheet and ideas to approach scheduling! Thanks
Nicole was thorough in her approach to how she handles scheduling. It was helpful that she shared her experiences with the group. It's nice to hear that others have "been there, done that."
Easy to listen to. Well organized. Realistic when answering questions and giving advice. Generous in sharing resources and items she's developed!
Fantastic presentation. Thank you.
Loved her template! She has an interesting perspective on priority
excellent and practical tips to successful scheduling

Allison did a great job! She gave very practical suggestions to handle one of the most challenging parts of our job. Thank you.
Fantastic course. Great content and well presented. I can't wait for the document for scheduling the caseload! Amazing! Thank you!
She shared a wonderful resource that I am looking forward to using! So helpful!
Good Info! More useful to CF's probably!
Great tips! I loved her lists and organized charts. I will use her tips when I make schedule in a few weeks.
Great insights and helpful examples! I made several scheduling mistakes during my CF and got off on the wrong foot with some teachers. After a year of working in a SNF, I'm going to take all of this information to better approach the task of scheduling in my new school. Thank you so much for the help and the templates!
Excellent course! I can't wait to use the tip/tricks and spreadsheet this year for my schedule! Maybe it won't be such an ordeal this year!! Thanks so much for sending it out to us!
Wonderful job, Nicole. Scheduling is always a beast and it really varies for everyone but I felt your five tips were pretty universal and are helpful for every SLP to keep in mind when scheduling. Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge. I will definitely be a new subscriber to your newsletter!!
This course provided useful information for both new and veteran SLPs. I am looking forward to using the spreadsheet that Nicole presented in the course.
Nicole was helpful, efficient and insightful!
Great tips! Nicole is easy to listen to and gave great examples!
Nicole was very easy to follow and she provided very useful tips! Thanks
Super ideas that even us "old dogs" can use to make one of the worst tasks of the school year go a bit more smoothly. Thanks for sharing your ideas and enthusiasm in a clear and concise manner. Your ideas are able to be easily adapted for different circumstances (i.e., states, districts, buildings) and will hopefully make this task work a bit better for me this year. Thanks for being willing to share!
This was a great presentation! I'm excited to try to use some of these tips in scheduling my caseload this coming school year.
Good tips and suggestions for SLPs just starting out or early in their career in the schools.
The handout was helpful but did not contain all information that was on the quiz. It would have been helpful to have the information from research, regarding scheduling, noted in the handout.
Thanks for all the info!
Great presentation! To the point and if followed very helpful. Thanks.
Encouraging and informative.
Great spreadsheet and helpful tips.
Great information and really appreciate how much she shares with others as far as her materials she has created. I am looking forward to receive her newsletter through email for the resources she mentioned she would be sharing!
Great information and tips.
Great info for a typically stressful situation
will try these new tips this year. I often start with my highest grade because they have the least amount of time for flexibility. My K teachers are easy to schedule with, but it makes sense to start with highest need. Thanks
Excellent information! Presenter is organized and the presentation was delivered in a clear manner. Awesome!
Great tips for scheduling!!
Good for beginning therapists
Thanks for sharing all of your tips. And special thanks for "keeping it real" when it comes to how things truly happen sometimes.
Fantastic presentation that included specific examples for those main idea and summarizing goals!
Lots of good ideas! Thank you!!
Great tips and tricks for scheduling with less headaches!
I can't say that I agree with this approach to scheduling, but I do agree with the underlying intentions: be flexible, make time for face-to-face interaction, and be kind but firm. As always, any information shared is worthy information! Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas.
