Language Worksheets Website

Okay just a quick post. I have 3 minutes until my next group starts but I had to share. During my prep time here at work I was trying to find some worksheets for possessives and I found this awesome website! It has lots of free language worksheets and you can download them as editable documents or as pdfs. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the person who made this site! Check it out!

I would just like to say that I really like your blog. I have not been able to read many of your posts yet, but I will definitely spend some time and go through them.

The post that really caught my eye was your review over the first week using an iPad. A fellow SLP wrote a grant for my district to get iPads for the SLPs last year. I was so excited, but started to realize it wasn't as "easy" as one would believe to integrate into therapy effectively. People hear, "iPad," and think that the gates of Heaven have opened before them. They don't realize that while there is a plethora of educational apps to choose from, cost is high and quality doesn't always seem to be. I love my iPad. I use the school's as well as my personal one with my students. I also let them use my phone. I really enjoy incorporating the technology into my therapy. My students love it, and I enjoy seeing how excited they get when we use them. I'm still hoping to find some really life-changing apps though.

Here's a little about me. I've been working in the public schools for 3 1/2 years now. I'm one of the, what is it like, 3% males working as an SLP. I love my profession. I love my job. I love my students. I love my coworkers. However, I worry that I'm not doing a good job. I stress over my most difficult students and feel as though I do a disservice to the majority of them. Oftentimes, I go home feeling like I'm a failure for not being creative enough for not coming up with the next "great" therapy idea that really engages the students and shows some progress. I'm lucky if my students are not absent on days that I don't have to cancel therapy for ANOTHER IEP meeting. The guilt is insurmountable at times. My students are always eager to come to speech. They often come and find me and ask when they get to come see me again. I'm blessed in that my students as well, as their parents, love me and enjoy working with me. My wife tells me I obsess too much and that I do a wonderful job, otherwise my students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators wouldn't want to work with me, lol.

All of this seems a little bleak, and I apologize for that. What I really want to say is that your post about the iPads, as simple as that was, encouraged me today. To know that someone else had the same concerns. It reminds me that maybe I'm not as alone in the great big world of being a speech path as it sometimes seems.
