Podcast Course: Communication & Complex Medical Needs with Dr. Margaret Bauman

We are excited to welcome two colleagues that we worked with years ago in an outpatient clinic - Dr. Margaret Bauman and Jennifer Leighton, a fellow SLP. In this episode we cover the importance of considering physical well being and pain management in individuals with complex communication needs.

What’s next?

We are looking ahead to the summer, which is the time when we record all of our episodes for next season. This summer we are also running our SLP Masterclass Complex Pediatric Evaluations in Speech-Language Pathology and the waitlist for that course is open! It’s a 4 week course being offered for 1.5 ASHA CEUs with an optional 1 graduate level credit through Fitchburg State University. The course is going to do a deep dive in how to conduct thorough and complex speech and language evaluations for our most complex learners, especially when standard scores don’t tell us exactly what we need to know. We will review many different kinds of assessment strategies as well as documentation needs in pediatric assessments. The course is only 4 weeks long, running from July 1st to July 30th. All the work is self-paced with weekly deadlines, and there are no live session requirements - it’s all asynchronous so you can work around your own schedule.

Get on the waitlist today if you are interested - seats are limited and the waitlist gets first dibs PLUS a discount.
