  1. Communication Station: Speech Therapy, PLLC

    I believe every SLP should have this resource! It’s written by an SLP for SLPs!!!
    What I like:
    1. Behaviors addressed target genetic, psychiatric AND neurological disorders.
    2. Clear and concise explanation of a team approach and what an FBA is along with written examples!
    3. Address the need to deferentially diagnose Behavior vs. Sensory issues as they are treated differently. I have to admit in my experience Behavior Specialists often times forget about Sensory issues and if we as SLPs can’t ID the difference between the two a child may end up with a BIP that is ineffective.
    4. List of explanations behind behaviors (great for helping us as SLPs understand the use of the behavior. Nice little cheat sheet!)
    5. List of guidelines on how data for FBAs should be taken. I only learned this through experience so its nice to see this written down in a packet for SLPs.
    6. GREAT explanation of prioritizing behaviors (what to work on 1, 2, 3rd)!!!
    7. LOVE that the packet addresses that punishment is NOT efficient and replacement/prevention is the BEST form of behavior management.
    8. LOVE the Behavior Management Hierarchy is listed LEAST to MOST intrusive b/c that is how we are expected to implement behavior management.
    9. Explanations of Positive behavior cues is great for us and even for teachers who don’t get this training!
    10. I LOVE the Positive Interventions list as we may be the ONLY professional in these meetings advocating for positive reinforcement rather than negative consequences. This list gives us an arsenal of options we can present.
    11. This packet includes FUNCTIONAL examples of how to teach replacement behavior!
    My favorite things about this packet:
    1. There are 6 appendix that can be carried around with you when going to BIP and IEP meetings. The 6 appendix are (1 page each on the following): Behavior Functions, Antecedents, Behavior Management Hierarchy, Modifications, Maintaining Factors, Written examples of FBA.
    2. There are case samples in this packet that describe a student, and give you questions to ponder. The BEST part if the next page has the answers to those questions to you can self-test to see how much you are understanding of behavior management and strategies!
    3. The research is already done for you!
    4. This 62 page packet is packed full of Behavioral Management information that is ONLY important to us as SLPs!!!
    Buy it today! Its great information!
