Happy Friday! Is it me, or do short work weeks seems so much longer than regular weeks? Oh well, we made it!
On Tuesday, we talked about releasing students and how to decide when it is time to release. Apparently, this is a topic that ASHA finds important as well. Many of the points in this article from reflect Tuesday’s discussion. The section labeled “Avoid an all-or-nothing approach” makes very similar points to a PD Melissa and I have presented a few times to different role groups and summarized in this post. A similar topic was covered by the middle/high PLC when they created this checklist.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you have other tools that are helpful in deciding when it is time to release students? Do you find that most opposition comes from parents or from other professionals? How do you deal with opposition?
