lives are filled with a combination of both obligations and opportunities. Sometimes
we may even have difficulty distinguishing between the two. Having the chance
to work hard, to push oneself to accomplish tasks, and to learn new things is
an opportunity. Access to education is not universal – learning is in many ways
still a ...
interventionists, we are constantly on the go. Adhering to the natural
environments policies, we are constantly traveling from home to day care and
back. The following tips are things we need to consider that are specific to
the job that we do.
1. Eat! It is very important to prepare your
meals and snacks for the days. I am ...
I feel very fortunate to have battled my own bouts of anxiety and the
baby blues with the birth of one of my own children. When I was suffering of
this debilitating battle, I would wonder why? Why me? It's hard enough being a
new mother of a baby that needs me 24/7, she cries, she poops—she never takes a
Why, on top of all of that, ...

re-read one of my all-time favorite books, The Curious
Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, and it
occurred to me how much I wanted to recommend this book to ...
I typically don't
use my blog to ''advertise'' a particular therapy approach or a speaker. I am
completely in favor of the ''eclectic'' approach to speech-language therapy. I
take bits and pieces from a variety of therapy
interventions/approaches/strategies and use what works best with my individual
students. However, I'm always open to new ...
Every 6 months or so, I like to recap and review popular
posts and the topics that seem to be most important to our readers. In
addition, I carefully comb through recent reader comments to make sure that
questions are being addressed and people are able to get the answers they are
seeking. Today's post will do just that, so please join me in ...
How is your
school year going so far?
The past 2

2010, I switched jobs after returning from maternity leave. When I moved into
my current position in February, not only was it the middle of the school year,
but the caseload was hefty. I inherited a group of about ...
has been a busy (and a bit unusual) start to the school year! If the weather
around here lately is any indication of what the winter and the rest of the
school year is going to be like, we're in trouble! Since I've gone back to
