Rules are nonnegotiable Scoring criteria, changing of the
court after every odd game, alternation of players between serves are constant. If you dont know the rules, you cant play the game without stacking up a lot of penalties. Played single or double Just like SLPs have a set of rules when playing solo they have one when they play a doubles match. Stay in the game by following the
rules. Solo vs. Doubles Independent Call the shots Get tired faster
Responsible for the score You dont have to cover the whole court Game is defined when both partners stay in their respective boundaries With time/trust you will learn to play the doubles game more effectively.
All players must know the rules, learn the boundaries, and respect the game. Licensure in the State of Oregon TSPC- Teacher Standards and Practice Commission.

May be done via email or phone if appropriate
Ace your Supervision For the first 90 days of employment with a given employer, 30% of the time the SLPA is providing clinical interaction must be supervised ( 20% of that in Direct Supervision, 10% Indirect Supervision) Subsequently, an SLPA must be supervised a
total of 20% of the time spent providing clinical interaction. ( 10% of that time is Direct Supervision, 10% Indirect) SLPA spends a total of 5 hours per day in clinical interaction with students (5 hours per day) x (5 days per week) =25 hours per week on average 25 hours per week x 4 weeks in a month = 100 hours per month on average Direct supervision = 10 hours per month

FALSE OAR 335-095-006 (a) However; they can conduct speech and language screenings without interpretation, utilizing screening protocols specified by the supervising SLP. True or False? Dysphagia management (swallowing) is not one of the authorized tasks for SLPAs?

OAR: 335-095-0050 (e) The SLPs caseload consists of ALL students including those seen by the SLPA. The SLPA service model should not be designed so that certain students are only seen by the SLPA and others are seen on a regular basis by the SLP. True or False? SLPAs can tally scores on standardized and criterion-referenced tests as long as they do not interpret the data.
TRUE OAR 335-095-0060 (d) Assist the speech-language pathologist in collecting and tallying of data for assessment purposes, without interpretations. True or False? Can and should SLPAs go to IEP meetings and sign the IEP?
Both! The OARs outline the SLPA scope of practice and OAR 335-095-0060 (2) (c) states that an SLPA May not participate in parent conferences, case conferences, or any interdisciplinary team without the presence of the supervising SLP. If an SLPA who regularly sees a student attends an IEP meeting to help provide some additional perspective for the parents, that is an option, but legal and professional role in the meeting is held by the SLP. However the SLPA can not sign formal documents!!
