When you’re a speech-language pathologist, there are lots of different data sheets you can use. Some SLPs have their own go-to data sheets, some SLPs prefer to download them from websites like Super Duper Publications or Therapy Fun Zone.
With that in mind, we surveyed over 1,000 SLPs to find out how they collect data on the progress of their speech therapy clients. Our results were fascinating!
First of all, as we might expect, we learned that most SLPs prefer to work with children (88%). We also learned that most SLPs prefer to work with small groups (83%) rather than one-on-one sessions. And, interestingly enough, there is no correlation between whether an SLP collects data and the number of years they have worked as an SLP.
We also uncovered some interesting trends in how SLPs collect information about the progress of their clients. The vast majority of practitioners take notes on a tablet or laptop (77%) rather than using pen and paper. There was almost an even split between those who used digital forms (49%) and those who handwrote forms (51%).
The speech-language pathology data sheets for this website were developed by a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist for speech-language pathology assessment and therapy. They may be used for personal (noncommercial) or professional purposes, but may not be redistributed or modified for resale.
These sheets make it easy to keep track of how a patient is performing in different aspects of their speech therapy. With this data, you can make sure that your therapy is having the impact it needs to have. Our data sheets are also perfect for tracking progress over time – you can use them with patients as they work through their therapy, then refer back later to evaluate long-term results. You’ll be able to see which methods worked best, and which were most effective at improving speech quality.
In the field of speech-language pathology, data sheets are used to track the progress of clients receiving therapy. The sheet includes a table for each client, which includes columns for a goal (the desired outcome of the therapy), an intervention (the technique used to achieve that goal), and a data column. In the data column, the therapist will write notes on how the client performed in his or her most recent session.
The purpose of these sheets is to track whether or not a given intervention is working for a given client. For example, if a client’s goal is to pronounce “so” correctly, and their intervention is practicing saying “so” into a mirror, then the therapist may try that technique with them at one session and note in their data sheet that they did not meet their goal. They would then try another method, such as singing along to music while looking at themselves in a mirror, and record that they did meet their goal.
These data sheets are used by speech and language pathologists to track the progress of their clients. They are designed to be brief, easy to read and understand, and present the information in an easily digestible format.
