    Within speech-language pathology, group therapy sessions stand out as an effective strategy for boosting social skills in those facing communication challenges. This method does more than enhance speech—it significantly enriches social interactions. It's become a crucial tactic for Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and offers new possibilities for parents.

    How can SLPs help children of color heal from collective trauma? "Collective trauma" explains the psychological distress experienced when a group or large community experience a shared trauma. This can be the psychological impact of watching protests and riots in response to police brutality cases like George Floyd, or other experiences like the ever-going water crises in Flint Michigan.

    Pepperdine University (2021) provides insights on how we can help children heal from collective trauma. This is necessary for SLPs so we can ensure the welfare of the people we services (ASHA Code of Ethics, 2023).

    Black History Month begins next week! Here are some things to keep in mind for therapy materials:

    1. Do your research! Make sure the information you are educating your students/clients on is accurate and based on historical facts.

    2. Keep your intentions in mind - consider WHY it's important to teach students about Black history.

    3. Release the struggle - not all Black history is about slavery or the Civil Rights Movement. There's a lot to celebrate! Remind students about the celebratory aspects of Black culture.

    4. Support Black businesses! There's plenty of Black businesses on TPT and Boom Cards (such as myself) who sell treatment materials. Support them this month and year round.

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark.– Two speech-language pathologists are providing speech therapy on wheels.

    The Chatterbus travels to different areas and catches the eye of school-aged children with its monkey bars, tent, swing, crafts and more, all used to give speech therapy. Suzanne Howard’s sons came home from school one day, and she knew she had to learn more.

    “My sons came home and talked about the fun little things they did on the Chatterbus — they didn’t even talk about school that day,” Howard said.
