SLP with EALs is the acronym of this episode. Damn, we just have so many acronyms and terms in our profession, I feel like I only remember 20% or less. I loved talking about this topic with Lianga (sp? probably) because it’s something she’s so passionate about and skilled in, plus she has this Disney Princess voice that I want to fucking steal like I’m Ursula, I swear.
Some of my favorites of this particular episode:
- How articulate and clear she was in explaining her thoughts and tips for this – go figure – she’s a Speech and Language Pathologist.
- Just the way that her voice is so calming and nice to listen to – it almost makes me feel like every teacher should have a cool, well-trained voice as a prerequisite.
- How we talk about inclusion, which I’m really into. Inclusivity eliminates bullying, my people!
- The playfulness. I may have forgotten her alias at the beginning, but it was a good icebreaker in the end.
Talk to me – what do you think we need to do to implement inclusion in our own teachings? What did you learn from this episode and what do you want to know more about in relation to Speech Therapy and English as an Additional Language?
