The Medical SLP Collective provides
the materials, resources, & webinars registered for ASHA CEUs
that you vote on combined with access to experts in all areas to answer your toughest clinical cases with compassion and evidence.
Here’s what you get inside the Collective:
Weekly Done for You Resources
Each week, you will receive a new video AND handout created to help educate you about all areas of medical SLP, including dysphagia, aphasia, motor speech disorders, voice disorders, NICU/peds, and cognitive communication.
You’ll also get information on how to advocate for your patients within the organizational bureaucracies that often make you feel like your patients’ needs don’t matter to the doctors and nurses. We don’t just give you the research either, we give you the clinical applicability, the actual scripts, signs, therapy, and advocacy materials that you can use today.
Each video will come with an “Action Sheet” that gives you links to all the resources you need to implement, and which can be printed for convenience to take on the go. The resources will never go away, the library just continues to grow. If you join today you’ll have immediate access to over 150 resources!
Blind Peer-Reviewed Resources on ALL areas of Medical SLP
You deserve to have confidence in knowing that the materials you are using for your patients are the latest state-of-the art, evidence-based, un-biased information designed to save you from weeding through all of the crap. We cover aphasia, dysphagia, dysarthria, voice, cognitive communication, and NICU … just to name a few.
Our contributors, reviewers, and editors spend dozens of hours each month scouring obscure journals that we have access to, in order to find you the latest research you probably don’t have access to as a clinician. Every resource is blind peer-reviewed by our team of university professors to ensure it’s accuracy, to reduce bias, and to provide links and resources to the most up to date research to support each resource. Our editors have created a process very similar to how journal reviewers review articles, except we also add even more clinically relevant information to support you in making evidence-based decisions.
Of course we LOVE evidence here, but it’s also only 1 leg of the evidence-based triad, our contributors that write these resources source the information from their clinical experiences, and patient outcomes, combined with the evidence to ensure that we consider all sides of evidence-based practices.
2-Hour Live Webinars Offered Monthly for ASHA CEUs, Delivered by Some of the Foremost Experts in Each Topic
We source the best experts to educate you specific topics. It’s like a graduate seminar in medical SLP, for the price of a Chinese restaurant dinner out for two. (And, if I do say so myself, I think this will advance your career more than that Chinese dinner.)
You’ll have a chance to ask the presenters all your burning questions live and on air. And if you miss the recording, no biggie! All webinar recordings are uploaded and can be viewed for ASHA CEUs at your convenience. Currently we have over 40 hours of webinars registered for ASHA CEUs that you can watch and get credit for today, most of which are intermediate or advanced level!
Some of our most popular webinars include:

A Library of All Past Classes and Action Sheets
We’ve been creating weekly content for 2 and a 1/2 years now with over 150 resources, which means there’s now a HUGE library of classes and resources to take advantage of. When you first join the membership, you’ll get access to this ENTIRE library, which means you can dive in and start educating yourself at whatever pace you want, from firehose to bathtub faucet- whatever pace feels best to you, you can absorb these materials on your own time–in addition to the new cutting-edge materials we’ll be uploading every week. These resources NEVER go away, we only continue to add to them! Some of our most popular resources have included:
- Dysphagia is so Myth-Understood (A Done-For-You Inservice, all you have to do it give it!)
- Oral Hygiene: Toothbrushing’s Role in the Prevention of Pneumonia in People with Dysphagia
- Dysphagia Information Sheet Patient Handout
- Patient Benefits and Risks of Thickened Liquids
- Cranial Nerve Examination
- Medical Setting AAC Boards (English & Spanish)
- Assessing and Treating Aphasia
- Assessing and Managing Dysarthria
- GoalWriting 101
- Aphasia Treatment: Semantic Feature Analysis (SFA)
- Promoting Aphasics’ Communicative Effectiveness (PACE)
And yes, we now even have a special section just for COVID-19 resources. Throughout this pandemic, we received mixed reviews on whether to continue forward with our regularly scheduled programming or abandon ship altogether and just focus on COVID. Since the opinions were so split, we did both. We continued to release our regularly scheduled resources every week, and also gave a bonus resource about COVID, all included in the membership fee at no extra cost.
Private Forum and Facebook Group
Hop into our exclusive Facebook group or private forum (that has it’s own app!!) to ask your questions. We have over 30 mentors ready to directly answer member questions in the group for The MedSLP Collective. You’ll also have access to paid moderators and university professors to ensure you receive guidance supported by the evidence.
Many of our members in the Collective say that the private forum in the Facebook Group is worth the price of enrollment alone, as you get real-life, front-line, in-the-trenches support from your fellow clinicians, with researchers to back it up, and a team of trained guides to answer your every question.*
Think of it as your medical SLP genie-in-a-bottle.
(Yes we do have some fantastic peds mentors as well, including 2 PhDs!)
Have you wanted to have a group of like-minded highly motivated Medical SLPs that you could communicate with on a regular basis and in a more intimate way?
We have created accountability groups for our members and some are meeting monthly, bi-weekly, and even weekly.
We’ve gotten great feedback from these groups that they were just what you need to set some career goals for yourself while getting feedback on your patients in a smaller group setting.
Exclusive Access to our LIVE event
So what is the Collective Live Event? So happy you asked! I created the Collective Live Event as a unique learning opportunity. Imagine having the chance to discuss your most challenging clinical cases with some of the top experts in our field – all while sipping wine and hanging out with your friends! That’s exactly how the Live Event is structured. Members have the opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions with mentors from the Collective, hear live speakers, obtain ASHA CEUs, all while in a laidback environment. (Seriously, we drank wine and ate the best food!) This event is only for Collective members and we want YOU there.
I am not only a mentor with the Medical SLP Collective, but a devoted user as well. My daily routine is to wake up, sign in, and learn. What new resources are available for my patients? What are people talking about in the chat rooms? Which exciting CEU should I take? It’s not your run-of-the-mill SLP website. It’s not a lifeless link like most you will find. It’s a thriving community. A community that I have grown to rely on in many ways. So much so that during this launch I am donating every penny I receive from commission to Dysphagia Outreach Project. If you decide to sign up with my link, you’re not only investing in your career and your ability to care for your patients, but also in helping people with dysphagia receive the products and support they deserve.

The Peer Review Process
Curious about our peer review process?

WHAT IS A RESOURCE?
A resource is meant to be used by clinicians. Resources range from topic overviews to deeper exploration, and take several useful forms, from tutorials to prepared in-services ready to use in clinical practice. Resources are not original research and are not designed for continuing education credit.
An Editorial Review includes careful examination and commentary on the mechanics (spelling, grammar, APA formatting, etc.) of each submission. Editors may also discuss whether the material meets the needs and interests of our membership.
A Peer Reviewer is familiar with research and clinical literature in the resource topic area. Our Peer Reviewers are typically PhD, EdD, or other research educated faculty, as well as some with clinical doctorates, master’s degrees, and backgrounds in development of clinical materials.
Authors who wish to submit a resource must reach out to the Content Manager (CM) to discuss an area of interest. The CM may also reach out to potential authors if specific requests for a resource are made. The CM provides the prospective author with “Contribution Guidelines,” that contain a general set of criteria including originality, attribution, organization of key points/objectives, etc.
Once the draft is received, Reviewer 1 (R1) completes first review following a set of guidelines that includes emphasis on best practice, accurate integration of relevant literature, and relevancy of cited materials. After this first review, R1 discusses resource with ME recommending minor or major revisions from author with a subsequent re-review (R2) after changes are made within 2-4 weeks.
Following R2, most resources only require editorial clean-up and are ready for publication. A reference recommendation, author name/collective name if no author listed, and date are applied, and the resource will be distributed to the collective, usually with a short video explanation from the author, from the CR, or from Theresa Richard.
