End of summer

Hey everyone,

I hope you all have had a great relaxing summer, Hahaha!!! It has gone much too quickly for me. I am not ready to step back into the race of clients and classes. Highlights of my summer included my son getting home fom his mission, my daughter getting her braces off, kids swimming lessons and taking ALL of our kids to lagoon (19 of us, what a riot), internships for
early intervention birth-to-three and Wide Horizons a residential care facilitiy for adults.

Weber school distrcit is desperately looking for slp's for this school year. They have hired many first year grads in the past to work part time. They do not want to hire bachelor degrees unless they can not find enough people to fill the posistions. They will give you plenty of supervision and expereince in the field. I am going to work for them one day a week this next year. They asked me to spread the word if anyone is intersted let me know and I will get you the contact info.

I can't wait to hear all about your experiences in your eternships. See you all in a few weeks,
Janet Vause

Rachel's Question

I hope that its okay that I posted this Rachel, but it made sense. ~Bob

Hi Guys!
This summer has gone by so fast! I have been at McKay-Dee this summer. I have been able to do everything from modified barium studies to working with right hemisphere and aphasia patients. It has been quite the experience. The main reason I am writing is because I have to do an inservice for all the rehab therapists (SLP/OT/PT). I decided to do it on memory. I was just wondering if anyone remembered the activities that Dr. Foley did with us to test procedural, declarative, etc memory. I remember it being something with dinosaurs, but I don't have any mention of it in my neuro notebook. SO, if anyone can remember (and if anyone is checking their email) would you please let me now asap? Thanks so much. Can't wait to catch up with everyone!
