The Speech Science Podcast

Be Kind to Other SLPs, RPM, ABA, and Dysphagia

June 7, 2022


**Trigger Warning**

This show was recorded the day following the horrific events of Uvalde Texas.  There is a discussion about the event from 12:38 to 22:06.  We discuss our reactions to the events and how it affects us.  We recognize that not everyone is ready for this type of discussion and we encourage you to skip through this discussion if you are not ready.   


Marie, Matt, Michael, Michelle, and Rachel dive into the research and pop news in and related to the field of Speech and Language Pathology and the Informed SLP breaks down the latest research.  On this week’s episode the crew discusses how SLPs need to improve their ability to not shame each other, RPM is back in the news, ABA Therapy is up for discussion, and Dysphagia following Cervical Surgery.  The Informed SLP  looks at why parent-child relationships is at the heart of early intervention services. 

The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7 with a new website,

SSPOD Shoutout: Do you know an SLP who deserves a digital fist bump or shout-out?  We want to know your #SSPODSHOUTOUT, which is recognition for someone doing something awesome somewhere. 

SSPOD Due Process: Your opportunity to message us about a problem in your area that you would like us to talk about, use the #SSPODDUEPROCESS.
