SLP Data Collection Techniques and Organization

  1. […] sets come a little more easily than others for different kiddos! I keep the sheet shown above in my data collection binder in the child’s section so I can easily document which words I’ve already targeted for […]

    Hi-Where can I get a copy of that last sheet that you have the hand on your paper for the weekly plan out in VERY general terms. I would love to have that and see a closer version of yours. I think that’s a great idea and could be helpful to me.
    Do you write these in or type them?! just wondering

    Hello! I’m a new CFY in the school setting and I’m definitely worried about keeping organized with lesson planning/ paperwork/ etc. Does it take you a very long time to write out each student’s goals (even in general terms) every week on your weekly plan goal sheets? Do you save them all separately in a google doc so that you can quickly amend and print them? I feel like I’m incredibly slow at lesson planning and am hoping not to lose my entire life over the next year as I learn how to mentally tackle planning for my caseload.

    Thank you!

      I keep it all saved in Google Drive so I can reprint it week to week! Try searching my blog for Google Sheets templates. I explain more there about how I use them! Good luck!

    Hello Shannon,

    Great post! You have many wonderful ideas that I plan to use to save me a lot of time!
    I’m a beginning SLP-A and have barely been exposed to the whole data collection thing (still learning and I want to get better!).
    You mentioned how you don’t take data every session so that you can focus on your therapy with the kiddos. What do you write down for your notes in these cases, billing-wise?
    Sorry, I was just told that I should take data every time by my supervisor. I feel like I’m just trying to get my bearings and run decent sessions, so it’s very hard for me to take hard data every time 🙁

    Thank you!

      Glad the post was helpful for you! I do take some sort of data each time but it’s not formal each time. I might document the activity we did, the skill(s) it targeted, level of cueing, what cues were successful, and maybe an accuracy if it makes sense based on the skill. About once a month I do a formal progress monitoring/data collection session! Hope that helps!
