SLP Jennifer Getch is selfless enough to share with her fellow professionals why her most prized possession in her speech room is her pacing board. In a post on the NW Speech Therapy blog, she even admits to referring to it as her "precious."
"I discovered the idea of a pacing board in my second year of grad school (I won't mention how long ago that was). I had a clinical advisor who suggested it to me when I was working with a child who still had not been diagnosed completely as he was very involved and very difficult to understand … You could probably imagine my frustration with working with this client as nothing I did seemed to consistently help and I felt as if I was failing him. When my advisor suggested a pacing board that she had made by grabbing a piece of paper and drawing circles on it, I thought she was downright crazy. I had tried the plethora of expensive therapy tools that we had at our fingertips in our college clinic and nothing was helping and she wanted me to use a piece of paper with circles on it."
