SLP Planner Roundup

Can you believe summer break is over already?  I have a few more days before I return to work (although students don't return until the end of August).  Whether you're back already, or returning soon, it's time we start talking about planners.  To help everyone out, I have compiled a list of some great SLP planners that will be so helpful for you as you prep for the new school year, with some tips to help you select the best fit for you.

1. The first decision that has to be made is whether you will have one main life/work planner, or if you would prefer to keep separate life and work planners.  I prefer one because I like to be able to have all my important dates and appointments on one calendar, but I do have separate work/personal sections built in.  Many of my SLP friends prefer to keep their work planners separate.

2. The next thing you need to decide is what pages you would most use in a planner.  I need to have a monthly calendar spread, as well as weekly pages for more specific notes.  I also like to add in pages to help me keep track of IEP meetings, evals, and reports due each month.  I also add in my school calendars. This year I will have 5 different district calendars to keep up with!

3. The last big decision is how you prefer to bind your planner together.  Do you prefer spiral bound? Do you want to be able to add/remove pages during the year? Maybe a three ring binder would be a good option for you.  There are many different binding options, and most are fairly inexpensive to have done at your local office store.  I always take mine to an office store to have it spiral bound.

Now...where to look for the best SLP planner for you? Teachers Pay Teachers of course!  Quite a few of my SLP friends have created beautiful and functional SLP planners.  The best part of theses planners is that they have been created by SLPs.  The prices are great, too!

Last year I actually purchased two different SLP planners and merged them into one.  I selected the pages I liked best from each and added my district calendars and contact info page.  I enjoyed being able to customize my planner, and I spent less than $15 on the entire thing!

This year I made the leap to an Erin Condren planner.  I love the vertical weekly format with three sections.  I use one for work, one for personal, and one for TPT/blogging.  Her planners are on the pricey side, but you can use my referral code and get $10 your first order! Just click HERE

If you're not that thrilled about spending $$$ on an expensive planner, the following is a list of SLP planners sold on Teachers Pay Teachers.  You're bound to find a style you love on this list, or you can purchase several and combine them!

No matter what kind of planner you choose, be sure to check out these awesome planner stickers from Kiwi Speech on Etsy.  They are great for SLPs and teachers!


And Wilma Dean Trout has handmade planner accessories, too!  Get them in her Etsy shop starting August 1.

Happy planning!
