Course Description

SLP mentoring is a win-win for both the mentee and the mentor.  It’s a pay-it-forward mentality, and one that is beneficial for our SLP profession as a whole.  Mentoring provides guidance and support for all SLPs—new or experienced—and ultimately for the children we work with.  This course details creative, practical, and resourceful techniques on how to implement effective mentoring.
