Historical Roots

  • Texas Speech Language Hearing Association Convention meeting was called

The plano isd practice development l.jpg
The Plano ISD Practice Development

  • Training in the TSHA Template in the spring of 2001 to Plano ISD SLPs.

  • Volunteer SLPs were sought to participate in development.

  • A group of nine SLPs representing all three clusters began meeting in the fall of 2001.

  • The team set a goal to have a manual ready in a semester.

  • 1 1/2 years later a working document was “ready”.

  • The team discovered there were many differing attitudes and practices despite the guidelines currently in place
