Our mission is to be a resource for Speech Language Pathologists out on the front lines doing treatments with patients.

Speech 101: Setting Yourself Up for Success

Hands in the air if you like hearing how other SLPs stay on top of their game from day-to-day? I do! Sadly I don't get to do this enough. Like many of the rest of you, I'm often a lone ranger SLP but I love it when we get a chance to work together (or [...]

New Hire Series: Preparing for a Home Health Interview

My Preparation     I recall when interviewing for home health positions that several of my friends and family often said, “Are you sure?” To them the thought of going into someone’s home was, well, frightening.
