What is SLPChat?
“SLPChat is a Twitter based study group. It is primarily meant for Speech-Language Pathologists/Therapists to collaborate in a more formalized atmosphere for professional development and discussion. However, you do not have to be a SLP/SLT to participate. We welcome students, people with speech and language disabilities, parents of children with difficulties, teachers, or anyone else interested in the topic. Each chat has a specific topic that will be explored by participants and is moderated by @SLPChat. If you are interested in joining this study group, please follow @SLPChat on Twitter and this blog to get updates on upcoming topics and chat dates and times. We will create a new blog post for every SLPChat that will occur and will publicize chats well in advance through this blog and on Twitter.”

We thought this was an interesting idea and an excellent way to keep up to date with new and relevant information and ideas. The website tells you everything you need to know about how to get started so have a read. The twitter account is: @SLPChat.
Please bear in mind that this is based in America so you need to take the time difference (Eastern time) into account.
If you think this is a good idea, we are considering setting up a journal club which would follow the same format. So let us know what you think in the comments box underneath!
