School Service Delivery: Practical Tools for Assessing Your Results
Format(s): On Demand Webinar
All areas of speech-language pathology practice require practitioners to demonstrate their value and contributions with specific, measurable outcomes. Preschool and K-12 school settings are no exception. Indeed, the call for results-driven educational practices, systematic methods of measuring educational outcomes, and accountability has never been greater. In this webinar, speaker Jean Blosser presents practical tools for determining outcomes in school speech-language programs so SLPs can advocate with administrators, modify intervention practices, and improve communication with educators and parents. The framework emphasizes three interrelated areas of service delivery: (1) student outcomes, (2) interprofessional collaboration outcomes, and (3) systemic outcomes. Participants focus on their own programs while learning to apply several practical outcomes-measurement tools – including satisfaction surveys, feedback forms, performance improvement plans, team assessments, progress monitoring, and more – that can improve their services for the benefit of their students.
Value-Added Assessment and Practical Use of the PACE Tool
Format(s): Streaming Video
Do you know the difference you make in the lives of your clients? Do others? Knowing and being able to demonstrate your professional value is critical not only to improved patient outcomes but also to receive appropriate reimbursement for services. In school settings, many administrators do not fully understand the roles and responsibilities of a school-based SLP. This lack of understanding often results in appraisals that do not truly reflect the SLP’s value. This course will explore the Performance Assessment of Contributions and Effectiveness (PACE) tool and how it can be used to bring meaning to the appraisal and increase awareness for school administrators.
