CONGRATULATIONS to Ms. Petersen, SLP.
Welcome to Speechtivities first Featured Segment. Our first series of segments will focus on Expressive Language and this particular segment will give you the ins and outs of targeting VERBS. Now, depending on your background you may or may not know what Expressive Language entails so we will start with a run down of what Expressive Language is and what areas fall under Expressive Language.
You DO NOT want to miss out on our ASHA 2014 Giveaway Extravaganza that begins this Wednesday!! We will be having a whopping 10 Prize Giveaway from some amazing sponsors. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED HERE AND ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE. Some of the prizes have specific times for the prize to be picked up. If this prize is not picked up by the allotted time then another winner will be chosen. Please pay attention to whether the prize can be won by ANYONE vs. ONLY an ASHA ATTENDEE. If you are not attending the convention please DO NOT enter into the giveaways that specifically state “MUST BE PRESENT AT ASHA TO WIN”.
There are less than 2 weeks until I am heading to ASHA. I am so excited! There are only a few things that I truly geek out over but this is definitely one! It will be the first time that I am attending as both an Exhibitor and a CEU earner so I am not just preparing for what courses I am going to hit but also how I will prepare for exhibiting. There is SO much to think about but I have definitely learned a lot in my time spent preparing. I thought I would share the love and give you my top 8 tips for getting prepared. I hope you find them useful.
Let’s start with sessions. After all, that is the reason that most of you are even attending, right?
I have to say that ASHA had a great idea with developing this online program planner. By either logging in to the ASHA website (if you are already registered) or registering on the ASHA website (if you are not), you can search for sessions that are of interest to you and put it together in an awesome itinerary that can be shared with others. Instructions for utilizing the program planner can be found here.
We have some exciting news…If you are not yet signed up to receive our newsletters make sure you sign up. We will be sending out therapy tips and tricks, featured products, exciting news, How-to’s for vendors and Updates for the website. If you missed our very first Newsletter you can find it here:
We are so excited to be heading to Orlando to promote the site at the ASHA Convention this November. You will find us at Booth 1377. Come by, say Hi and enter to win one of our giveaways. We will be showcasing products from the site. If you have a paid product that you would be willing to give us a copy of to showcase at ASHA, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and state that we have your permission to showcase it at the convention. There are over 12,000 SLP’s and AUD’s that attend the convention. This is great exposure for your products and your store!
GET MORE TRAFFIC TO YOUR STORE!!! We will be choosing a Featured Vendor of the month and will be showcasing them on our blog. Everyone will get to know you through a series of Q & A’s and will get access to your blog and social media platforms. To be chosen as a Featured Vendor you must have at least 5 products uploaded to your store.
If you are following us on Facebook then you have probably already seen the weekly Featured Products. These will continue to be showcased each Friday and will be put in a Newsletter featurette that will come out once a month and be sent to all of our newsletter followers. Just another way for your store and products to be seen!!
