Explore Our Features Further:

We know you don’t have enough time.  That’s why we’re creating new “No Prep Therapy Kits” every month.  These kits will give you everything you need to do therapy from start to finish for one skill.  

Which Kits are Included in the Membership: 

Every month we choose a new theme for The SLP Solution membership.  Our themes include large areas of therapy like speech, language, fluency, social skills, etc.  

Each month, the kits that are available for the chosen topic will be available to members for free.  At the end of that month, those kits will be taken down and new ones will be added for the following month’s theme.  The longer you stay, the bigger your library of kits can grow!

 

What’s Included in the Kits?

  • Lesson Plans that Break the Skill Down into Manageable Phases
  • Sample Goals
  • Data Collection Sheets
  • Drill & Practice Pages for Every Phase
  • No-Prep Games for Every Phase
  • Homework Sheets for Every Phase

If you’ve ever wondered what the most effective way to teach a specific skill is or to treat a specific problem, then you’re going to love the Therapy Activity Database! We’ve broken down 100+ communication skills into step-by-step guides that walk you through exactly what to do in therapy.  That’s right, we’ve done the task analysis for you on all of these skills and then provided you the actual therapy activity ideas, worksheets, and resources you need to do it.  Plus, we’re adding new workhseets and skills every month!  Let me show you how it works!  Just click one of our 12 main categories here:

Then, you’ll come to a page like this with sub-categories and specific skills:

 

Once you select a specific skill, you’ll come to a page like this one where you’ll be able to see the step-by-step task analysis of how to do therapy for that particular condition.  You’ll also find therapy activities, resources, and worksheets for each step of the process.  Finally, we finish each skill page off with some troubleshooting tips in case your situation isn’t quite textbook.

We’ve done this process with over one hundred skills so far and we’re adding new ones each month.  You’re sure to find something here to help you determine the best and most effective way to help your clients.

Need some continuing ed? We have you covered! Each month, we choose one topic to have an in-depth training with the latest evidence-based practices. As a member, you will be able to watch the training live and ask questions or watch a recorded version of the training afterwards.  After watching the webinar, you have the option to take a 10-question quiz for continuing education credit.  If you pass with at least 80% accuracy, you will be able to print out a certificate of completion for certification maintenance hours (CMH).  These work like CEUs but we can’t register them with ASHA for you.  You’ll need to keep track of your certificate and submit one form to ASHA at the end of the year that contains all of your CMH credits.  

For more information about how CMH hours work, please click here!

We’re adding at least one new hour-long CMH per month and we’ll be adding additional ones as we go along. That’s everything you need to get your 30 ASHA-required hours per 3-year cycle! 

 

Continuing Education Courses: 

We’re in the process of adding additional continuing education opportunities through our Continuing Education Courses.  These will include a series of videos plus resources that will give you a more in-depth understanding of a specific topic.  Then, you’ll be able to take one quiz at the end of the whole thing instead of multiple quizzes along the way.

Let’s face it, even with all this support, you’re still going to have those tricky cases when you just don’t know what to do next. We have a solution for that as well! As a member of The SLP Solution, you’ll have two different ways to get answers to your tough questions:

  1. Exclusive Facebook Group
    Hop into our exclusive Facebook group and ask your question in there. Carrie directly answers member questions in the group as do the other SLP staff members for The SLP Solution. Plus, you’ll get answers from anyone else in the group who has experience with that topic!  We can’t tell you directly what to do since we haven’t seen your particular client.  But we can tell you what we’ve tried in the past or point you toward evidence-based practices and pre-made resources.
  2. Forum in the Membership Area
    Not on Facebook? No problem! You can also ask questions using the forum inside the membership area.
Meet Our Full Staff!
We have a full staff of SLPs who are paid to answer your questions and create new therapy activities and webinars for you each month.  To learn more about our staff, scroll down to the next section, “Meet Our Full Staff”!

As I mentioned above, we choose one topic to focus on each month.  At the end of every month, we hold an online event called a “Small Talk”.  This will be a group discussion where we’ll discuss the topic of the month.  You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, share ideas, and learn from the others in the group.  We’ll talk about the resources shared during the month, the webinar that was presented by our resident expert, and more!  Watch from your computer and chime in when you feel comfortable.

If you could change one aspect of our profession, what would it be?  More support?  More reasonable caseloads?  Better resources for our clients?

We at The SLP Solution feel like A LOT can be done to make our profession better and we’re motivated to see that happen.  We want all speech-language professionals to feel included and supported and to love every day of their job.  That’s why we’re setting aside time to specifically take a look at how we can improve our community and services but also how we can improve our profession as a whole.  If you have a passion to help and the notion that the world could be a better place, come join us and work together toward change!

Now let’s talk about your planning time.  We’ve covered what to do in therapy in our Therapy Activity Database, but what about all of the other aspects of your job?  A ton goes into being a speech-language pathologist aside from just doing the therapy.  The therapy is usually the part we love!  It’s all of this other stuff that gets in the way.  And when you have a caseload of 87 kids and about 15 minutes per week to plan, there just aren’t enough hours in the work day.  

That’s why we’ve created the SLP Planning Center!  This amazing database will put tools and resources in your hands that will shorten your planning time and boost your confidence.  What do you need the most help with?  You’ll simply pick a planning area from our list of topics below:

Then, you’ll come to a page like this one where you’ll see specific tools, resources, or supports that will help you with that area of planning:

Just like with the Therapy Activity Database, we’ll be adding more tools to this section as we go along!  We expect that this area will become your go-to spot when that ever-precious, though ever-small slot of planning time comes up in your schedule!

Have you ever had an “Oh Crap!” session? You know, the kind that you either didn’t have time to plan for or you had a great plan and it went terribly awry. Or…Do you find that you just don’t have enough time to plan fun activities for your therapy sessions?

Either way, you NEED the SLP Survival Kit in your life. When you first subscribe to The Speech Therapy Solution membership, we’ll get you set up with your very own SLP survival kit. All you need is a binder/box, dividers, and sheet protectors. I’ll send you the rest. We’ll fill it with ready-to-go worksheets that you can pull out and do in therapy with no prep time. Use it as your backup or reduce planning time by using those materials instead of prepping new activities for each session.

Then, each week I’ll send you a new set of worksheets that you can add to your kit. It will only take you a few minutes per week and you can pick the ones that are relevant to your students. Over time, we’ll build you a fully-customized set of therapy activities that will cover a variety of communication skills. The longer you stay in, the bigger your kit will be and the less time you’ll spend on planning each week!

Did we mention that we want to support you?  And that means helping you out with tools and resources that are NOT a part of our membership as well!  We’re actively working to put together our recommendations for top products and resources in the speech-language pathology world.  And whenever possible, we’re leveraging the power of our large group to get you discounts on those resources!

Members of The SLP Solution will get 30% off all of our eBooks and PDFs at both the Speech and Language Kids website and The SLP Solution site.  In addition, we’re reaching out to other SLP business owners to get you discounts on our favorite tools, resources, and courses.

Frequently Asked Questions

The community membership is a great option if you’d like to be a part of our professional support community but don’t need all of the therapy activities and resources.  You can join just the community and still get access to the following: 

  • Private Facebook Group: For asking questions about tough cases and connecting with other professionals
  • Private Forum: In case you’re not a fan of using social media
  • Members-Only Small Talk Events: Join a virtual group discussion about the topic of the month!
  • Discounts and Product Recommendations: We want to be your one-stop shop for all things SLP!  That’s why we’re working with other SLP companies to bring you discounts, tools, and resources that will help make your job a little easier.

We are here to answer your questions and help you with your tricky cases! You have two options for how you can connect to our thriving communities.  

1. Private Facebook Group: Social media makes it easier than ever for us to connect with others in our profession.  But this isn’t just ANY Facebook group!  This is a private group just for our paid members.  Our staff and our community manager, Shanell Latta, CCC-SLP, work hard to make sure that our community is a supportive and kind one.  We also make sure that you’ll get great, helpful answers to your questions as quickly as possible.  Plus, most of our community hangs out here in this Facebook group so you’ll get answers from other speech-language pathologists and professionals in here as well!

(Not interested in all of the rest of the Facebook nonsense?  If you’re not a fan of using Facebook, you can simply set up a username and password to join our group and then bookmark our specific Facebook group link below.  Then, you can go straight to the group without having to browse through everything else on Facebook first.)

*** Please note that you’ll need to request to join the group and it may take us a few business days to get everyone approved. We appreciate your patience!

 

2. Private Website Forum: Not on Facebook?  No problem!  We also have a private forum on our website where you can ask questions and get support.  I will warn you that our private forum is not as popular or as active as our Facebook group, so the answers come in a little more slowly and the community members don’t always chime in on here.  But our full staff of SLPs are ready to answer your questions in the forum just as well as the Facebook group.  So you can still get some support without the social media.

You will be set up on a payment plan via Paypal or your credit card. Each month, you will be charged the monthly fee. You can cancel at any time and there is no cancellation fee!

Yes!

We can accept purchase orders from your school! Just send us an invoice from your school with exactly what you would like to purchase and we’ll get everything taken care of. Here’s our information for the invoice:

The SLP Solution
206 Corporate Lake Dr.
Columbia, MO 65203

Business Phone: (888) 982-8412

Send Invoices to: Support@slpsolution.com

These memberships are for Speech-Language Pathologists/Therapists and Speech-Language Pathology Assistants who work with children as well as other professionals who work with children with speech and language needs. This membership is not for parents because each training video assumes a basic understanding of speech and language concepts and techniques that may be more advanced than many parents are interested in.

As of July 1st, 2019, The SLP Solution is no longer an ASHA-Approved CE Provider.  We spent a lot of time and money to maintain our CE Provider Status for as long as we could but we found that the time and financial commitment was not worth what we were able to get out of it.  For that reason, we decided that our time and money is better spent finding other ways to help our community.  We’re now able to offer you more new resources and planning tools each month than we were when we were working with ASHA.  

You can still get continuing education credit for our webinars though!  Since we are not an approved provider, we can no longer submit your hours directly to ASHA, but you can do it yourself!  We are able to allow you to print of a certificate of completion for certification maintenance hours (CMH). ASHA will allow you to use these types of CMHs for all 30 of your continuing education hours, you just have to fill out a form at the end of your certification cycle to state which CMHs you attended.

For more information about how CMH work, click here!
