Hello? Is ANYONE out there?
I need help...Pretty desperate over here.
I hate COVID and the fact that I have to provide school based speech-language services via online as well as in brick and mortar setting.
Grappling with WHAT WEBSITES TO USE TO KEEP KIDS ENGAGED.
NEED SOMETHING THAT IS FUN AND INTERACTIVE THAT TARGETS SPEECH AND LANGUAGE.
any suggestions will be appreciated.
I had a horrible experience with my SNF CF position. Not only did I not get the hours promised, but there were many things that made me feel like I was putting my license on the line. So, after much thought and re-evaluation of my priorities, I decided I wanted to work with kids. Unfortunately, with the school year already started, there were no positions open. Same goes with many private practices and clinics. My question is how does taking a year off between grad school and CFY look to employers?
Hi all! I just graduated with my CMDS undergraduate degree from a school in Arkansas in May. I applied to 5 schools: 2 in Texas, 2 in Arkansas, and 1 in Oklahoma but I wasn’t accepted to either of them. I was diagnosed with a learning disability at the end of my junior year so up until then the highest GPA I was able to earn even with working really hard was a 3.0. Thankfully I came in with a lot of hours from dual credit and both semesters my senior year I earned a 3.4, so I graduated with a 3.17. Unfortunately, most of my lower scores are in my CMDS classes. Then I took the GRE twice and the first time I took it I scored a 296 (V:149,Q:145,W:4.0) but then I took it again under let’s say stressful situations and I only scored a 292 (V:148,Q:143,W:4.5). It’s my dream to become a pediatric SLP, though, and I have already been offered a job after graduating from my Master’s from a private clinic I interned for 2 summers ago. Also, I have a lot of volunteer hours, I have some practicum hours from undergraduate, and I thought I had good LORs. I am now starting to reapply to schools, and I wanted to see if anyone could give me some advice on where to apply or how to make my application stronger? I am currently volunteering with an organization in Uganda by assisting an SLT here and shadowing an american SLP once a week for 5 months and when I return at the end of November I am going to find an SLPA job around where I am from in Texas.
I finished grad school a year early and decided I wanted to spend a year in Spain teaching English and learning Spanish before I started my CFY... Now I have a boyfriend and a little bit of a life here and I am weighing the pros and cons of staying for one more year. Can anyone give me advice on wether I’m jeopardizing anything with potential hirers in the future if I take a two year gap between grad school and my CFY? Would it be in my better interest to stay home next year and get my CF year over with? Any advice or insight would be helpful!!!
