    What are some strategies to help you have difficult conversations with graduate clinicians? For example, if the student is continuing bad habits when writing SOAP notes or if they are constantly showing up late? I understand grad school grades above a C are important...I'm happy to hear any stories!

    One way to be culturally responsive is to assess where you fall on the Rosenthal Effect scale. The Rosenthal Effect (aka Pygmalion Effect) discusses the power of expectations. This weekend in my 1-hour ASHA seminar, I explained how our implicit biases and expectations of different cultures impacts their progress in treatment. You can check out the theory here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbhwlRRW_3o

    My graduate program tells me I will get answers wrong if I "mispronounce" the word, "Dysphagia." I've been pronouncing the word as "dis-fah-juh." But I've heard people pronounce as "dis-fay-juh."

    I'd like to know your thoughts on this? And why my graduate program would make such a big deal out of this

    I'm a graduate student and had a situation where I picked up the wrong child (thinking they were a girl), and their paperwork says they are a boy. What would be the culturally appropriate way to address this situation?

    "Praxis® mistake #3: Engaging in Negative Self-Talk! Often times when we’re pressured or stressed, It’s easy to lose sight of how AMAZING you are. Take hold of self-sabotaging thoughts and remind yourself you are right where you’re meant to be.

    Praxis® mistake #2: You’re “Winging It”! We’ve ALL been guilty of this. In fact, it’s even natural for us to “wing it” with our session activities! However, “winging it” is not recommended for your professional certification exam.
