For SLPs, Musings

You know you’re a school based SLP if…

Being a school based SLP is admirable and meaningful, but the job can be a real challenge sometimes. These hilarious GIFs help to lighten the mood and help you relate if you're a school based SLP.

You know you’re a school based SLP if… you can relate to this!

1. You start every day like this.


2.  You’ve got your game face mastered when a student does something unexpected.


3. When you find out you’ve got a few more referrals/evaluations coming down the pike.


4. You go to the Target dollar section and just need ALL THE THINGS.


5. Until you see one of your students or families there (and of course it’s a weekend and you’re a hot mess).


6. When a teacher of one of your students tells you that they’ve noticed improvement in the classroom.


7. It is a momentous occasion when you get to see your full schedule for a day without being interrupted by meetings.


8. Just casually typing 7 IEPs during your 3 second prep time.


9. After the bell rings and the students leave, you take a moment to congratulate yourself.


10. And then you head home to end your day with a well-deserved “glass” of wine.



Did I miss any?! Let me know so I can continue to add to this list!

All of you school based SLP professionals do incredible work! Stay positive and rock this school year!
