    Hi yall! I'll be popping into Q&A groups to help Praxis Preppers get to their passing score! This is also good for practicing SLPs who need a little brush up on their skills ;)

    Here's today's question:
    Explain the difference between developmental stuttering and acquired stuttering.

    a) Developmental stuttering is sudden onset, while acquired stuttering is gradual.
    b) Developmental stuttering is often seen in adults, while acquired stuttering is common in children.
    c) Developmental stuttering typically starts in childhood, while acquired stuttering can result from a head injury.
    d) Developmental stuttering results from trauma, while acquired stuttering is genetic.

    I'm curious about the impact of EFT tapping and hypnosis on test performance! I am a hypnosis and EFT practitioner and used hypnosis techniques to help my clients connect to their WHY. I've noticed their intuition strengthened and confidence increased after taking the practice Praxis tests.

  • Are graduate programs preparing future SLPs enough?

    Hello everyone!

    I was recently talking to my supervisor about graduate school and how for a lot of SLPs, they learn way more in the "real world" than in graduate school. Obviously, we need a degree to get our license and everything but we were discussing whether or not these 2 year programs are doing students justice. By that I mean, I think there should be more courses for cultural competency/humility, multilingualism, neurodiversity, fluency, etc. Additionally, having more intentional externship semesters for a specific setting would be beneficial (e.g. private practice, hospital/clinics, and schools). The rationale behind this is that my program has 3 on-campus clinic semesters, 1 externship (private practice or medical) semester, and 1 student teaching semester. While I am still deciding what setting I want to go in, I think that having 1 semester in a hospital or clinic, 1 semester in private practice, and 1 semester at a school would set a lot of us up for success especially when considering a CFY. But with all this considered, extending the master's programs might lead to more burn out.

    So, my questions for you all are:
    1. Do you think graduate programs are setting us up for true success? If yes, please explain.
    2. If no, what do you think can be changed?

    Hello! Do you have any resources for fluency disorders and intervention?

    I've noticed that fluency is an area that is not covered enough in undergrad and grad programs. In undergrad, we had 1 course but none in grad school. Some of my peers in grad school have mentioned not having a fluency class in their speech programs. I am becoming more and more familiar with working with students/clients with fluency difficulties but there's still more to know regarding assessment and intervention! We appreciate any advice or resources you may have!

    Hello! I am going to start applying for my CFY and I know a lot of my peers are doing the same. I was wondering if you had any advice for us about the application processes for different settings. I'm considering looking for school placements but I know a lot of my peers have more medical interests. I would love to share your advice with my peers and audience!

    Thank you :)

    Hello everyone! If you celebrate Halloween, then Happy Halloween! Even if you don't, I hope y'all are having a great day!

    For those of you that don't know, my instagram is @arybspeech and I have been sharing my grad school journey to my audience since 2021. Recently, I asked my audience if they had any questions about grad school, externships, the Praxis, student teaching, etc. I wanted to ask the Liricare community to weigh in on some of these topics since we all have different experiences and advice on how to navigate becoming an SLP. For more specific questions about different disorders like dysphagia, voice, etc., I will direct my questions in those Q&A groups.

    So, my first question for you all is: What advice would you give an aspiring or licensed SLP if they are struggling with imposter syndrome?

    I just got hired as an adjunct professor for the Spring 2024 semester. Does anyone have advice/tips on how to put together a course? This will be my first time teaching a course at a university.
