OSHA Spring Conference 2018: Registration open!

Live from Pendleton, and livestreamed to participating districts, the OSHA Spring Conference is entering its third year. Peter Flipsen, Ph.D., will present a full-day talk on Speech Sound Disorders, covering persistent speech sound errors in school-age children, and special considerations when working with children with cochlear implants or cleft palate. 

Dr. Flipsen is a Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. He has previously taught in Idaho, Tennessee, and Minnesota. His research focuses on speech and language development in children with cochlear implants, persistent speech sound errors in older children, and on measuring the intelligibility of children's speech. 

Registration is now open. Please plan to join OSHA, the Oregon Department of Education, and the InterMountain Education Service District for this state-wide event on March 2, 2018!

Season Two of "Making Connections", the OSHA series of short documentaries about our professions, is now available for viewing and sharing! 

Click on the films below, or visit our YouTube channel at this link to view all ten films!

Making Connections offers a glimpse into the very broad and diverse world of speech-language pathology and audiology through the profiles of Oregon clinicians in different practice settings. 

We wanted to show how speech-language pathologists and audiologists build relationships with their patients, clients, and students, so they can effectively help people with communication and swallowing needs connect with the important people in their lives.

Many thanks to filmmaker Kai Tillman, project managers Phaedra Urban and Cheryl Green, and the clinicians and participants who volunteered their time and their personal stories.

Making Connections was made possible by a grant from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA).

Advocacy for Reasonable Workloads and Caseloads for School-Based SLPs

OSHA has produced a letter, available at the link below, that will be sent to special education directors in Oregon, advocating for reasonable caseloads and workloads for SLPs. We urge directors who plan, budget and hire for SLP coverage in their districts to take into account the improved student outcomes that result from appropriate caseload size.

 If you are a school-based SLP who is in need of a more reasonable caseload, please feel free to share this letter, along with the evidence-based informational graphs, with your colleagues, union representatives or administrators.
