NEVER STOP LEARNING
Be curious about your profession and your employer. Spend time reading professional publications and blogs. Sign up for training when it’s offered, and even discuss external training opportunities with your supervisor. Join a special interest group (SIG); these are professional communities that focus on a specific topic in speech, language, hearing, and related areas. You’ll find a wealth of information and communities through ASHA, devoted to many topics including school-based issues, telepractice, hearing and hearing disorders in childhood, and craniofacial and velopharyngeal disorders, among others. Plus, SIGs are a great way to build your network of colleagues.
