The teachers in my building are — bless them! — using new technology in their classrooms to send students to my therapy room on time. Thanks to the generosity of the PTO, all classrooms are now equipped with a Smartboard. The teachers are using their Outlook mail to create an appointment for each student who has to leave the room for speech (also for Academic Enrichment, resource room, music lessons, etc.). Those appointments are coded as recurring until the end of the school year, so they only have to be set once. Five minutes before the students are due in the therapy room, the computer softly pings and a pop-up reminder appears on the Smartboard. Isn’t this genius?? I love it!
