My AI Journey

Having worked as a Speech and Language Therapist in the UK for nearly 30 years I have lived through many changes and adapted as technology has advanced. Initially the idea of generative AI was concerning and I worried that that it would be difficult to learn. However, once I took the plunge the benefits became clear. Over the past year, I've delved into its capabilities and am still amazed daily by the ways it enhances my clinical practice, streamlines administrative tasks, and expands my professional knowledge.

Using Generative AI in SLT Workshop

In my workshops, I share valuable insights and offer a platform for Speech and Language Therapists to discover how innovative technologies like ChatGPT, Copilot, and many more can be creatively and ethically integrated into clinical practice. This exploration aims to revolutionise our work, enabling more meaningful time with clients, the creation of highly personalised therapy sessions, and keeping us updated with the latest research - all while helping maintain a healthier work-life balance. As SLTs, your deep understanding of language processing uniquely positions you to easily grasp large language models. I promise, navigating this technology will feel intuitive and rewarding!

I asked it to write me questions using Marion Blank's (1978) levels of questioning, here's what it wrote:

Level 1: Direct Recall

1. What animals can you see looking at the storybook?

2. What is the storybook resting on?

Level 2: Simple Inferencing

3. Why do you think the animals are interested in the storybook?

4. What kind of stories do you think are in the book?

Level 3: Reorganisation

5. If you could add a story to the book, what would it be about?

6. How do you think the storybook ended up in the forest?

Level 4: Abstract Reasoning

7. What lesson might the animals learn from the stories in the book?

8. Imagine if the book could talk. What would it say to the animals?
