I am extremely passionate about early intervention, and in late summer 2019 I came to the realisation that we Early Intervention SLPs needed our own event! We needed something that celebrates the love we all have for this area of Speech Therapy! So, I gathered together 7 of my early intervention SLP friends and started #TheBigEIEvent.
What is The Big EI Event?
The Big EI Event is a free early intervention event, hosted by SLPs, for SLPs. We took over Instagram for eight days to give YOU new therapy ideas, and to pass on the latest evidence-based practice within early intervention. We also wanted to introduce you to the thousands of other EI therapists out there, so together, we can all succeed. It was awesome. We covered a range of topics related to early intervention throughout the week:
Who was involved with The Big EI Event on Instagram?
Day Two- The amazing team at EI Northwestern, led by Megan Roberts hosted day two! They shared all about Early Intervention Research and EBP!
Day Four- Becky McArthur from We_Communicate was the host for day four. Shared tips, tricks and ideas for delivering effective home-based therapy.
Day Six- Day six was hosted by Emily Cohen from Tandem Speech Therapy. She shared all about ‘Playing with Purpose’ in your early intervention therapy sessions.
Day Eight- The week was wrapped up by Liliana from Bilingual Speechie. She shared important tips and information for working effectively with interpreters in early intervention sessions.
I hope this event is something you find useful; be sure to follow along over on Instagram, and join my email list to be kept up to date with new product releases, and news for other events that are happening in the future!
