“Thanks Ellen for your kind thoughts. It was such a pleasure to showcase Tom and his work on the podcast. Excited for folks to hear his experience, ideas, and energy. I too feel there is a really important message for SLPs about empowering our clients early in the treatment phase to advocate for themselves. All too often it’s the last session and we are telling them what they might do now that we aren’t there with them vs. working with them to plan for the future. Thanks Tom for sharing your insight and wisdom.”
