SMART goals are my bread and butter – literally!
As someone who worked as a hospital rehabilitation SLP (that’s “speech-language pathologist) treating adults who suffered from stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s, and more, SMART goals weren’t just important – they were CRITICAL.
Not only is it essential to identify what behaviors or skills to target with your patient, but it also is crucial to get paid for your services.
Poor goal writing can result in your patient getting your services denied by insurance companies.
