 Many Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) working in the schools are asked to supervise or mentor others (support personnel, SLP Assistants, graduate externs, clinical fellows, new SLPs, etc.) with little or no training. Being an effective supervisor requires setting common goals, communicating, sharing feedback, and guiding change in behaviors. ASHA’s nine building blocks of supervision will be presented. The session will discuss practical strategies that can be readily implemented for successful supervision in the school setting.
