18 Ways to Scare a Social Worker

18 Ways to Scare a Social Worker

I recently saw a hilarious post on Sublime Speech about the Spookiest Things To Do To an SLP. I figured I’d jump on the fun and make a list for school social workers as well (I did borrow a few of hers!)!

  • Blinking voicemail light to start the day
  • A move-in student with a behavior plan and social work minutes
  • “unfounded”
  • Medicaid
  • Burps, gas, and runny noses
  • “I DIDN’T TAKE MY MEDICINE TODAY!”
  • An invasion of the Unthinkables
    – A required 8-hour workshop that doesn’t offer CEUs
  • “I don’t allow _______ accommodation in my classroom.”
  • 10 calendar days or 10 school days?
  • An IEP invitation for tomorrow morning at 8:00 am
  • “My child has ADHD, and Bipolar Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, and ODD, Tourette’s, and Anxiety, and Autism. They also have bad handwriting and can’t tie their shoes.”
  • Required professional development about teaching math under Common Core
  • Changing special ed. legislation
  • SQUIRREL!!!
    – Questionable administrator discipline handlings
  • License renewal time!
  • Overdue re-evals

Anything I should add? What else scares you!?
