No matter where you work as an SLP, data collection is a critically important part of our jobs.
When I was first starting out as an SLP, the idea of data completely overwhelmed me. I had 43 students on my caseload, each with 4-5 goals. How in the world could I keep track of that much data?
I've created this data collection packet to help you collect high quality data on your students' articulation goals. The best piece of advice on data collection I can give school SLPs is to get students involved in tracking their own data! When students know their goals and track their own progress, they are way more invested in their learning AND it makes your life way easier! My students fill out rubrics as we practice their skills and then chart their growth on graph paper. The best part is, I can have a group of 4 or 5 students taking their own data so I can focus on providing high quality cues and prompts, informal observations, and having FUN with my groups!

I love pairing my articulation data packet with madlibs - quick, easy, print and go and super motivating for my students! Check it out here: Articulation Mad-libs
