If you have been feeling burned out by the #schoolslp life, come to the Speech Retreat to help re-discover what you love about the profession.

When Hallie, Natalie, Felice, and Maureen got together, we realized there were not enough engaging, quality events for SLPs. Are you bored of the usual workshops? You are the reason we created this event!

The Speech Retreat was created because we wanted a place where SLPs can learn and have fun while walking away with practical therapy ideas. We are in the trenches too and know how overwhelming it can be to be a school-based SLP. We have so many responsibilities from data collection, evaluations, lesson planning, behavior management, billing, and more. We want to be able to share what works in our therapy rooms so that you can be refreshed and have tons of ideas to bring back to yours.

Learn from SLPs actually working in the field. Walk away with practical ideas and resources that you can use over and over. Spend the day with like-minded SLPs that "get it!" If you want to learn the way you would like to teach your students, in a laid back, entertaining and fun environment? This workshop is for you! If you have ever found yourself scrambling for an activity 5 minutes before a therapy session, the Speech Retreat is for you! If you have been feeling burned out by the #schoolslp life, come to the Speech Retreat to help re-discover what you love about the profession. If you are looking for new therapy activities that don’t take hours to prep, come to the Speech Retreat.

This workshop is unlike ANY other workshop! This won't be your typical PD that shares tons of research that you cannot apply. You will walk away with ideas that you can use throughout the school year!

This workshop is perfect for any SLP working with school-age children from elementary through middle school. Preschool and high school SLPs welcome as well!

***Due to the fact that Felice will be having a baby that week...she will NOT be joining us for the summer 2019 Speech Retreat. Stay tuned to find out who our special guest will be!***

Don't delay! Limited seats available! Come join us for a day of learning and fun! Mark your calendars today so you keep the date available while making your summer plans!

  • If you take yourself too seriously
  • You are hoping to show up and have the work done for you
  • Hoping to learn all about 1 specific topic and hear lots of research on it
  • If you are looking for a quick way to get ASHA CEUs

*CMH hours = not CEUs! This workshop is not acredited by ASHA but does meet all requirements for CMH hours. Visit ASHA's website to see their statement on acceptance on CMH hours. This would be double the price if it was CEU's. ASHA's fees are crazy expensive, ya'll. You can use these hours but they won't be submitted to the CEU registry.
