    Disrupting, Dismantling & Designing Communication Sciences: Feelings, Fire and Fuel

    This kick-off session for the July SLP Summit will establish the tone and tenor of the online conference—change is necessary, and this is how we compassionately engage. Utilizing two decades of experience supporting school districts and new qualitative research related to Overwhelmed School-Based Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP), Phuong will utilize the 60 minutes to invest in an advocacy framework to support the invisible load of speech-language therapists within their respective settings. The course, embedded in humanity anchors, will address methodologies for others’ understanding of SLP roles and responsibilities, culturally responsive agency and, ultimately, maximizing communication outcomes in ways that align with our professional duties and personal, humanly needs.
