Not Sure What to Teach?

Sometimes we can describe what's going on but we're not sure which specific skills to teach the child to best support them.  Don't worry, I've got you on that, too!

Imagine a World...

  • where¬†each child with a communication challenge had caregivers, teachers, and speech-language pathologists all¬†working together¬†on the same skills in the same ways! ¬†Imagine how much progress that child could make if we all had access to the same tools, resources, and support.
  • where we reduce the shortage¬†of speech-language pathologists and professionals by fostering the next batch of SLPs coming through our gateways.
  • where you are no longer stressed out by the challenges of supporting a child/children with communication challenges because you have everything you need to confidently teach speech/language/communication skills and to manage everything that goes along with it.
  • where you're not doing this alone anymore.¬† You have a team of people who believe in you and who are rooting for you. ¬†And a team that you can go to when your lesson goes awry or you don't know how to tackle the next challenge in front of you.

Your Guide:
Carrie Clark, CCC-SLP


Hi!  I'm Carrie Clark and I'll be your guide on your hero's journey.  I have been a speech-language pathologist since 2008 and I've spent the last 11 years learning the best ways to teach others how to help children with communication challenges.  

My super power is creating easy-to-follow plans to break down complex communication skills into something you can implement today to help a child with communication challenges.  I've combed through the research and combined it with my expertise and the expertise of others to bring you the most extensive support resource possible!

You may recognize me from the Speech and Language Kids website or The SLP Solution membership.  This Hub is the new iteration of The SLP Solution membership.  Not only have we streamlined and updated the resources from the old membership, we've also put it together in this new format that's easier to use than ever before.  Plus, there's an app version! 

And I'll be inside the Hub right there with you.  I'll be with you every step of the way through your hero's journey: leading discussions, answering your questions, and pointing you in the right direction.  I take my role as your guide seriously.  I'm here for you!


What others are saying...

I have had a chance to really explore and I am loving all of these resources. It is beautifully put together. I think everyone graduating from grad school should have a membership here for their first year. I know my first year of practice would have been much easier, less stressful and more successful if I had done that! I'm almost 10 years into the profession and learning so much from all of these resources. 

I gotta say, man, what you've done with your site in the past few months is seriously brilliant! The SLP solution had a ton of info, but it really needed a makeover. The way you've organized the content on this site, and even starting an app, is super innovative and long overdue in our field! 

I’ve been a fan of your content for a while now but I just joined the Hub and wow- I am so glad I did! Of all the SLP resources/memberships/subscriptions I’ve tried, I have found yours to be the most helpful BY FAR (and I’ve only been a member for 24 hours!

I appreciate your openness and support Carrie. So far, I like the platform. This was the best decision. Thank you for all you do to help us in the field. Sending you a virtual hug!

When I found your SLK Hub I was so thrilled because it is exactly the kind of resource I've been looking for - thank you!

We're Not Here to Replace your SLP...

The Speech and Language Kids Hub is for informational and educational purposes only and does not provide medical or psychological diagnosis, recommendations, or advice.  It is not intended to replace the need for a child to see a speech-language pathologist in person who can provide specific recommendations for a child.  

We're not here to tell you what you should do with your child or client.  We haven't met that particular child or worked with him/her directly so it would be unethical for us to provide specific recommendations.  

Instead, our purpose is to provide access to resources that can be used to teach speech and language skills.  Every child with communication challenges should be followed by a speech-language pathologist or professional who will design and oversee the treatment plan.  Once that plan is implemented, you can ask your child's speech-language pathologist to help you choose skills to practice at home.  At that point, we'll help you find the resources that relate to that skill.

Our community is designed so that we can all share our experiences and ideas without anyone feeling like they are responsible for "fixing" someone else's situation.  I truly believe that we can all be more effective when we learn from each other.  

Parents need to understand the realities of scheduling 70+ kids into each and every week.  SLPs need to understand the 500 other things that parents have going on that might take priority over working on communication skills.  And everyone needs to understand that teachers are trying to meet the individual needs of 20+ kids all day every day.  We are better human beings when we can sympathize with what others are going through.  And we can better help the children in our lives when we work together as a team.

FAQs: 


Can I get ASHA CEUs for these courses?

Unfortunately, we are not an ASHA-approved CEU provider anymore.  The ASHA CEU program is not set up to be manageable for small businesses with small teams.  For that reason, we have chosen to spend our efforts on brining you amazing content instead.

No, you cannot get ASHA CEU credit but you CAN use this course for Professional Development Hours (PDH).  ASHA will let you use PDH courses to count for all 30 hours of your professional development requirements.  You simply need to keep track of them yourself instead of us submitting them to ASHA for you.  We will give you a certificate of completion that you can save in case you get audited.  (For that matter, did you know that you can use your school inservices and other informal trainings for your ASHA hours?)

For more information about ASHA PDH requirements, click here.

State licensing boards and other countries may have different requirements for your professional development hours and may require a certain number of your hours to be ASHA-approved CEUs.  If that is the case, then our courses will not count for that.  Check with your licensing board or organization to find out whether they will accept our courses.
