Has everyone seen those commercials on TV talking about online schools for K-8 grade (and higher, I think)? I've seen these, and that has caused me to about my future in the SLP career as a school speech-language pathologist. I can eventually see everything happening online, which would drastically change what I do in the schools. I was contacted by Catherine from PresenceLearning. She told me that they are having an online little webinar to discuss online speech therapy for these students. I wanted to share this information with you all in case you're interested in attending this webinar.
Every month PresenceLearning hosts free interactive webinars under the "SPED Ahead" series to provide a forum for speech-language pathologists, aspiring SLPs, and parents to discuss the latest innovations in the field.
This week, PresenceLearning is hosting their latest webinar, "Online Speech Therapy for Virtual School Students: When, Where and How?", and I'd like to invite you and your readers to attend and participate in the discussion.
About the Webinar: Online Speech Therapy for Virtual School Students: When, Where and How
Date: Thursday, September 27th, 2012
Time: 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT)
Cost: No Charge
These webinars are interactive and all participants are encouraged to submit any questions they may have.
If you decide to attend this webinar, please let me know what you think of it! I will be unable to attend unfortunately because my school is very strict about internet access, but I am hoping to receive some information from Catherine regarding the webinar.
I hope some of you find this useful! What do you think about our future as school SLPs?
