Course Abstract

This presentation examines an SLP's journey in delivering services in the classroom via a team-teaching model with a special educator and a regular educator over the course of a school year. This is a qualitative, 7-month longitudinal case-study of the SLP's roles, routines, and perceptions as a collaborative partner in inclusive service delivery. The results of the collaborative discourse that emerged are discussed. Practical implications related to the the types of discourse patterns that facilitated successful collaborations will be highlighted. Simple collaboration strategies such as asking clarification questions and learning how to negotiate the suggestions of other professionals will be highlighted.

Review by: Member on February 28, 2013
This is a very important topic. Inclusion and collaboration are highly successful models that are too infrequently incorporated into our education systems.

great information about collaborative therapy/teaching
Review by: Member on December 20, 2012
Interesting to know different ways on how to collaborate with teachers in the school--at times that could be very difficult but this course planned out a clear way on how to do that

Examples of collaboration
Review by: Member on November 12, 2012
Collaboration in the classroom is the new thrust for SLP's working in schools.
Review by: Member on October 28, 2012
The course was organized. The presenter followed her Power Point note slides. The "Q1", Q2", helped thinking about test questions. Thought she left out at least "2" "Qs".
Review by: Member on October 26, 2012
The excellent questions at the end of the seminar and the speaker's comprehensive and rich responses. It put a practical face on this topic that anyone in the schools could truly relate to.
Review by: Member on October 19, 2012
It inspired thought provoking questions about least restrictive environment.
Review by: Member on October 11, 2012
The questions and answers section at the end made this course even more valuable to me. I encourage this presenter to make more presentations in future that include more of her personal experiences in collaboration. You have so much important information to share with us.
Review by: Member on October 2, 2012
How collaboration is done is much clearer to me now.
Review by: Member on August 2, 2012
Nice research to support the process. As an SLP who has done a lot of collaborative work I agree strongly with the premise of the need for definition of roles. We know we have succeeded when you hear your words (questioning strategies used with the teacher/slp) being used by students in their small group work.
Review by: Member on July 24, 2012
Lara gave specific examples of how Suggest-Accept; Suggest-Modify; Suggest-Reject; Clarify; and Exclaim/Notate would be used in a collaborative setting.

It was excellent because examples were used and definitions of models were given.
Review by: Member on May 21, 2012
I liked how it broke down the pieces of collaboration. She also stressed to begin small and work toward a larger program.
Review by: Member on May 8, 2012
descriptions to ease into collaboration
Review by: Member on March 17, 2012
The course had good ideas and suggestions - it related to my situation as an SLP in a school setting. It showed the value of joint planning. The course was well-planned and presented - easy to understand and follow. Good guidelines re: collaboration between SLPs and teachers.
Review by: Member on March 9, 2012
The presenter was knowledgeable about the subject and had good suggestions. She also mentioned potential pitfalls in the process and things to watch for as you would prepare to use this model
Review by: Member on March 7, 2012
The information presented was good but how she deicide what to put in the project was excess information from my point of view.
Review by: Member on March 7, 2012
The research aspect and the experience of the presenter.
Review by: Member on March 6, 2012
This course made me reflect on the way that I am providing services to my students in the school setting.
Review by: Member on March 5, 2012
It confirmed what I have recently discovered when I initiated collaboration in the classroom.
Review by: Member on March 3, 2012
The framework was well laid out and the idea of doing this is great. This course offered some ideas for how I can try to be more collaboative with the teachers I work with, just in general. Unfortunately I think there are many hurdles. For example, in this case study all of the ESE students were in one "inclusion" class. That makes doing this model much more doable. At my school, my teacher's paycheck is tied to student achievement and they would not be willing to have all of the ESE students in one classroom. I have a huge caseload and without that scenerio, there are just not enough minutes in my day for me to go to all of the classrooms. I might be able to implement this with one class and one grade level, but it would still be a hardship because I would still have to see the other students in the other classes on that grade level. They would never all be in the same classroom. I would like to be more collaborative, but still don't see how I can really apply this model in my situation.
Review by: Member on February 24, 2012
Data was vary relatable to my field.
Review by: Member on February 17, 2012
If you are currently collaborating, the study suggested that the likelihood of success depends upon trust and the ability to dialogue/modify during instruction.Great stuff-- also validated that collaborations does feel "on the fly"...
Review by: Member on February 9, 2012
Well organized. Very clear presentation of data.
