Interview: Angie is a Certified Life Coach and School-Based SLP.  She lives with her husband and two little girls in the Rochester NY area. Her passion is to rescue SLPs who are feeling overwhelmed, overworked and trapped in a career they're "supposed" to love. She shows her clients how to reclaim their energy, create more time and generate resources.  Her mission is to help whip-smart SLPs do less, be more, and thrive with joy in the one life they have. 


The Informed SLP: AMR 2.0: Take a deep breath and say “buh-buh-buh” as quickly as you can, as long as you can, until you run out of breath. Alternating Motion Rates (AMRs) have been a staple in clinical evaluations of motor speech performance for decades; they are easy to use and can tell us a lot about the neuromuscular integrity of persons with suspected motor speech disorders.
