3 Things Every SLP Student Should Own

Hi speechies and happy Sunday!

I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that every SLP/future SLP has a little bit of a nerd in them...or maybe it's just me? 🤓 Either way, these 3 things are just TOO cute not to share with y'all!

YOU GUYS. This is the ULTIMATE speechie clipboard. I was looking for a cute one and I typed in "best SLP clipboard" and although this one isn't SUPER cute, it is packed with info. It's one of my favorite Amazon finds EVER. When I shared it in my Instagram stories I had SO many people reach out and ask where it's from so now ya know. Here are some of the things listed on the front/back of it:
  • List of cranial nervies
  • Phonetic symbols
  • Phonological processes
  • Mean length utterance averages/formula
  • Fundamental frequency averages
  • Aphasia impairment levels
  • Hearing loss degrees
  • CVA effects
  • Swallowing phases
  • Rancho Los Amigos scale
  • Goal Writing Components
  • Developmental Milestones
...and a few others! It is seriously such a resourceful tool and I know I'm going to get so much use out of it!

two. Speech bubble paperclips

It's no secret that SLPs are responsible for A LOT of paperwork. So we might as well use cute pens, paper, and accessories...right? A sweet friend of mine was at IKEA and saw these speech bubble paperclips. She scooped them up for me and they are so precious! It's the little things!

Okay so these are KIIIIND of intense, I know, but I just couldn't resist! I was looking for TOMS with speech bubbles on them and couldn't find any. The next day, these came up in a FB ad so naturally I jumped at buying a pair. I haven't received them yet, but I'll be sure to come back with an update once I do! I think they'll be really fun to wear to the clinics during my practicums.

What are some SLP must have items on your list? Let me know!
