Please don’t refer to me as an underpaid, overworked school- based SLP, because that description misses the significance of my position. I work with kids—kids with monumental challenges to school success, kids with autism, language and learning disabilities, all kinds of kids with all kinds of challenges. I work with a diverse group of staff people spanning the continuum from the highly motivated, skillful, and creative to the complacent and burnt out. I also work with parents—parents who are responsive and appreciative and parents who are defensive and argumentative. I’m going to talk about all those kids, all those staff, and all those parents. I’m hoping that you’ll be meeting a kindred spirit in this article, a person who shares your thoughts and feelings. I’m planning to write about substantive clinical matters, but I’m also going to engage in “heart talk.” Are you with me?
