Its episode 118, even if they keep calling it episode 117. During this week’s show, they plan for a longer Fourth of July Weekend. Michelle’s child turns two on the fourth this week as she wraps up her last few days before her move. Michael looks forward to some social distancing family get togethers. Matt talks about how he is terrible at using the holidays in his speech and language therapy and he will be attending a reverse parade.
On today’s show, we discuss recent research showing why some words are easier to remember than others, Disney World has won a disability lawsuit, and how music impacts memory. This week’s Informed SLP looks at tongue ties. We also look at our SSPOD Shoutouts and Due Process. The ASHA spotlight looks at what ASHA is doing to spotlight SLPs of color.
The Discord is up and ready for people to interact with the crew 24/7 with a new website, www.discord.speechsciencepodcast.com.
SSPOD Shoutout: Do you know an SLP who deserves a digital fist bump or shout out? We want to know your #SSPODSHOUTOUT, which is recognition for someone doing something awesome somewhere. Jennifer Jayme and those who got the Military Spouse Community page up and running for ASHA receive this week’s SSPOD Shoutout.
SSPOD Due Process: Do you have a complaint or need to vent, then you want to participate in the #SSPODDUEPROCESS.
Topic #1: The national institute of heal looks at the frequency of vocabulary and why some are easier to remember. If a word has a higher frequency will they recall it easier on a screener? Does this impact the way and the vocabulary we target in therapy based on the patient?
Topic #2: Disney previously changed the way they handled customers and guests with disabilities by issuing a return time instead of allowing the guest to go to the front of the line immediately. A guest sued Disney, but a court found Disney to not be at fault. The group talks about the impact of learning to wait and how this can help.
Topic #3: Patriotic music may be linked to certain memories. How does this translate into other areas of therapy?
The Informed SLP: Talking Tongue Ties: You won’t find many hotter topics in our little corner of the world right now than tongue-ties AKA ankyloglossia AKA tethered oral tissues AKA a very short and/or tight sublingual frenulum that restricts lingual mobility.
ASHA Spotlight: ASHA is printing and spotlighting SLPs of color.
