My current topic of interest is How Not to Be a “Karen” (or “Ken”) SLP.
Are you an SLP looking for different ideas? Then, you’ve come to the right place. At Outside the Box, I think differently. Here, I am dedicated to helping clinicians and families develop research-based, creative, and practical ideas to help children with communication disorders reach their potential.
**Please note** Outside the Box exists as a place to develop and discuss ideas for ways to address children’s speech and language needs. I am always happy to provide resources or suggestions for things to try. But, this site and our discussions are not a replacement for the services provided by a licensed speech-language pathologist in your area.
About Outside the Box
At Outside the Box, my mission is to help develop creative, research-based intervention ideas for individuals with communication disorders with your trust, care, and empathy in mind.
As a researcher, I am very interested in continuing to further our clinical knowledge about effective treatments for children’s speech and language disorders. I strive to use the method I developed, the CLOUDS Philosophy – (Cultivating Language OUtcomes in Diverse Systems) in the development of ideas to try in speech-language therapy.
At Outside the Box, I believe it’s critical that SLPs have a creative space to collaborate with each other. I created Outside the Box and this site as a way to have open discussions about what’s working and what isn’t for children with communication disorders.
