Faq & Disclaimer
1. Conversations in Speech Pathology (CSP) is a podcast about issues related to the clinical practice of speech pathology. My mission is for the show to be: Interesting, Respectful to all parties, & Fun!
2. Per #1, my interests are primarily Autism, AAC, and Speech Sound Disorders (SSD). But...I will continue to cover other areas as well.
3. Please don't assume that because I cover a particular topic or individual that I am automatically endorsing everything they say and stand for. I want to hear from a variety of voices and I may or may not agree with everything a particular guest might say. Please keep that in mind.
Thanks for listening!
Working FAQ (Updated Summer 2020)
1. Why don’t you put more episodes out on a regular basis? My podcast is a part-time passion of mine and it's a lot of work. For every hour of audio I record, there are about 4 hours of editing and post-production work that need to get done. There are also a lot of other speech podcasts these days- I'm really impressed!
2. Do you feel a responsibility to champion evidence-based practice (EBP)? Yes, with a slight caveat. There are a number of issues in speech pathology where evidence (for or against a particular intervention) is either lacking or misleading (depending on who is citing a particular study). There is a serious lack of nuance and openness in our profession (actually, it's in all corners of life these days). I have always believed that it is better to justify why you are doing a particular intervention than to do something just because it was cited in a study. I also believe speech pathology is a profession still in its infancy. So much to learn!
3. I really like the podcast. How can I support what you’re doing? I’m glad you asked! There are 3 ways you can help me out:
1. Leave a review in Apple Podcasts or wherever else you listen to this show.
2. Spread the word! Share the show with a colleague/friend.
3. I am going to launch a product this fall (2020). Stay tuned!
