    Speech Language Pathology
  1. I can't speak to the paraprofessional side but it seems several people I got into grad school with were ABA therapists as was I. I feel like I have a better handle on how to handle behavior. also I work at a clinic with speech and am involved with the speech sessions
  2. My school (WSU) automatically did the Gradplus loan. They have a break down on my student center. It shows the $20,500 and then what is gradplus. The amount they gave me fits what the estimated cost of everything is on the financial WSU website. There's categories for things which is how they determined what to loan me (tuition, books, board, living expenses, transportation). I submitted the FAFSA in January and received a package before I was even accepted to the school. ive emailed the school basic questions like how does summer aid work and can people ask for more, etc? Mainly because I've never taken out student loans and just want to make sure I understand everything before I accept my loans on my student center. If anyone has any more info, I'll gladly take it
  3. So I know which school I am going to, (WSU) and I've been working on figuring everything out I need to do before everything begins. I was looking at the financial section of my student center page and it says estimated. So this is the amount I've been awarded right? How do you know if it is enough? I just have never taken out student loans before so I just want to know what's happening really.
  4. Haha, I know, we've discussed it! But for anyone else who hasn't, it's certainly worth watching. I quoted your post but should have just said it for everyone!
  5. I do DTT everyday of my life basically. ABA will also provide good ways to collect data
  6. Also look up ABA sessions! I'm an ABA therapist and plan on definitely using some of the methods we do in my career.
  7. A book you guys might enjoy is NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity. Again, more for the people who work with people with autism but it's fantastic!!
  8. You will be riding on major roads but I don't see why bike would be an issue. It does get really hot though!
  9. Nope, but I think I've passed by them several times! Bike would probably be a good way to get to campus from there. People steal bikes off of campus and around a lot, so make sure to get heavy duty locks if that's what you decide to do!
  10. Which one?
  11. There is one, just search for it! Something like northeastern university SLP 2019
  12. Private messaging you my email!
  13. How far from campus is it?
  14. I would just say that it's not something I would rely on for my only form of transportation I guess.
  15. I was just checking this thread because I was an undergrad in Tucson. I would keep in mind the shuttles from apartment complexes can be cramped and hot and often end decently early
