SLP Vocab 101

As speech-language pathologists, we spend lots of time in school (typically 6 years) and learn so much.  Once you're out of school, you really want to just use all of that wonderful information (and confusing vocabulary) that you spent so much time (and money) learning.  The words we learn become a part of our lives.  We use them so frequently that they become ingrained in us.  They become so common and routine for us that we forget that not everyone knows what we're talking about!  

So, I created a basic SLP vocabulary hand-out for parents, a cheat-sheet if you will.

Here's the color version:

  1. Thank you...this looks like a great place to start with parents!

  2. Thanks! I think this would even be helpful for some of my teachers!

    1. I didn't even think of that, but it's a great idea! I just got a referral the other day for a student. The teacher checked off a box listing "fluency" as a concern. Turns out, she meant reading fluency, not stuttering!

  3. Thank you! This will help me as a teacher when I am sitting in on a team!

  4. Nice job! Great for parents, great for educators and administrators! LIKE! Must share!
