Well, I joined Twitter (@lindseypaden) and learned how to Twit so I may as well start blogging and learn how to blorg. I’m no luddite but this is definitely new to me.
My name is Lindsey Paden Cargill and I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and Therapy Manager at an amazing therapy and education center called Bridgeway Academy in Columbus Ohio (www.bridgewayohio.org). With the support of an amazing team of SLPs, OTs, PTs, Music Therapists, special educators, psychologists, BCBAs and teachers I have become very passionate about the provision of AAC intervention in the private school, outpatient and home-based settings. I am also lucky enough to travel around the country to provide consultations and trainings to families, teachers, therapists and other professionals about AAC theory and implementation. Recently I have also become very passionate about contributing to the research base and have presented at ASHA alongside colleagues from Bridgeway and The Ohio State University. We also have several ongoing studies that I am very excited about.
My plan for this blog is to share stories, therapy ideas, successes and lessons learned from our experiences in the trenches at Bridgeway Academy and share the progress and results of our research.
