So I am totally one of those people with great organizational ambitions. At the beginning of the school year everything is nice and neat and organized. As the year moves along, piles begin to form and papers begin to stack up. I look around and things are
a little out of place aren’t so organized anymore pretty much a wreck.
This year I’ll be trying out some new systems, so I’m hoping that they’ll stick…especially since I found out that I’m now going to be the only SLP at my school. Yes, I work at a primary school. No, I have no idea how I’m going to manage. Any advice is welcome and appreciated lol. I figure I’m going to have to be super organized to make it work.
In my attempt to coral my paperwork, I’ll be keeping a therapy binder or 2. I combined a couple of great downloads I found on TPT to make my binder. I used the Let’s Get Organized packet from [simply speech] and the 2013-2014 SLP Monthly Planner from Denise Polley.
Both packs have such cute pages! I just printed out the ones that applied to me and tweaked a couple of them a little with my sharpie to meet my needs. 🙂
I’m thinking that this will be just what I need. I’ve got a calendar for each month, referral info, and screening and RtI info.
I even included a copy of my district’s procedure checklists for quick reference.
There are also sections for evals, re-evals, due dates, medicaid lists, running to-do lists, parent contact info, and more. I spiral-bound it all together, so it’s not as bulky as an actual binder. It’s more like a planner.
**UPDATE: I recently created my own planner to customize it to fit more of my needs. You can check it out HERE!
I do have another binder where I keep all my student data and attendance information.
I section it off by grade and store their lesson plans, tally sheets, and medicaid logs behind each tab. Because these have to be filed every 9 weeks, they need to be in a place where I can transfer them easily.
I’m also thinking about keeping all of their therapy data on the Therapy Report Center app by Smarty Ears. I’m still trying to work out the logistics of it.
How do you keep your paperwork organized? Any tips you can share?
