  • Behavior Management Through Adventure

    Back at the start of the school year, I had mentioned four new therapy approaches I was trying this year.  About a month ago I talked about one of them -- my use of adapted story books to build early literacy skills in students with moderate to severe disabilities.  In today's blog, I will talk about a second one. I spend ...

  • Book It, Part 18: A View from the Mind of...

    Although this series has predominantly been about picture books that SLPs can utilize in language therapy, I suppose I am allowed to make some detours. I recently 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 ...

  • This Conference Was a Winner!

    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 ...

  • Geriatric SLP Resources on the Web and in Social Media

    Information for the SLP treating adults and geriatric patients can be found ever increasingly online. I have been delighted to discover several websites, groups on social media sites, and discussion lists that provide information and support for SLPs and their patients. We are able to share information and ask questions of other ...

  • Off to a Good Start: A Personal Reflection and Checklist

    How is your school year going so far? The past 2 years have been very challenging for me with regards to organization. Early in 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 ...

  • New School Year, New Ideas

    It certainly 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 school ,  we've experienced a minor earthquake, were blown around and rained upon by the outer ...

  • Advice for New Graduates (or Those New to Geriatrics)

    With the end of summer, many new SLPs are leaving their graduate school days and supervised clinical experiences behind them and entering the field as a CFY clinician. In my experience, both in pediatrics and with adults, one of the greatest challenges to new clinicians is scheduling and planning services.  As I read through various ...

  • Interview with a Private Clinician: Part 1

    In my last post, I talked about how I did a little bit of work in private practice and what I see as the advantages to keeping my day job in the schools! I wanted to share the expertise of Christopher Heistand, the SLP who started the clinic where I work over the summer. There are now three SLPs and three OTs who work together at this clinic. ...

  • Are You Bored Yet? Part 1

    Imagine going to work every day and doing the same simple task. For the sake of illustration, lets say that task is sorting paper clips by size and color. After spending forty-five tedious minutes on the job, you are finally done. Your boss approaches, and says, ''Great job!''  Then she dumps all the paper clips out onto the table and ...
