This presentation will help guide supervisors of SLP interns in intentionally exposing student clinicians to Interprofessional Education (IPE) in preparation for Interprofessional Practice (IPP) in a school-based work setting. Developing specific experiences in IPE that can occur during the internship in a school-based setting will be presented. Furthermore, this talk will include discussion about how IPE/IPP can affect outcomes of the children served by SLPs from a broader perspective.
Participants will be able to define IPE and IPP specifically is it relates to school-based settings.
Participants will be able to list activities at their school where a student intern can participate in IPE and IPP.
Participants will be able to foster IPE and IPP at their school by citing specific positive outcomes for students.
