Tip #6 for Supervising

The Frenzied SLPs are providing tips for supervising SLPAs, CFs, or interns this month. Today it's my turn to give my 2 cents worth!
The school system where I work doesn't have SLPAs, and it's been a long time since I've had the opportunity to supervise a CF, but my tip will work for any of them! I learned the hard way that it's important to be upfront with your expectations, and to have them in writing. I wrote my last intern a book...not that I'm that harsh of a supervisor, but I wanted to make sure I had everything in writing.  She knew the dress code, her hours, the caseload...everything. She had no surprises when she walked in that first day, and things went very smoothly. 
So, take a few minutes and write down everything you think she should know. I would do it about a week before you give it to her...you may continue to think of things you need to add to your first list!
