SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS (SIGS)
SPG is proud to offer employees the opportunity to join one or more of the following Special Interest Groups:
Behavioral Intervention SIG – The purpose of this group is to foster collaboration and provide expert training and advice to those who are interested in learning more about how to utilize evidence-based behavior intervention strategies to improve their services. The Behavior Intervention SIG provides a forum through which employees can pose questions, connect with colleagues and tap into resources from SPG’’s growing staff of school-based Board-Certified Behavior Analysts.
Cultural & Linguistically Diverse (CLD) SIG – This popular SIG group was designed for bilingual SLPs, those serving children of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and anyone who is interested in learning more about this topic. SPG’s CLD SIG members have access to expert information and opportunities to develop interconnectedness with colleagues through a shared on-line forum and to attend periodic professional development trainings which focus on the ELL student.
AAC SIG – SPG hosts an online special interest group (SIG) forum for those with interest in augmentative & alternative communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT). Our AAC/AT SIG is the ideal forum for interested SPG professionals. Whether you are a speech language pathologist, a behavioralist, or any other related specialists, whether part of SPG’s AAC Mentorship program, have students on your caseload who use AAC, or are merely interested in learning more about this complicated and growing topic within our field, you are welcome to join our AAC/AT SIG. As a member of our SIG you will receive periodic emails as topics or announcements are posted and discussed. This forum will provide a space for questions to be posted and answered, resources and current research to be shared, challenges and success to be discussed, and most importantly the opportunity for networking with other colleagues.
