  • Sleep Time

    ''There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.'' ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson I love this time of the year. The cooler evenings always seem to help me sleep better. There is nothing quite like that feeling of climbing into bed, pulling the covers up, and laying my head on my nice soft pillow. Not long ...

  • Using Past Experience

         It is amazing to me how much of my experience teaching preschool is helping me with my pediatric placement. Not only has it helped me in relating to the children, but it’s helping me come up with activities as well.

  • Tummy Time Revisited

    Tere Bowen Irish wrote a powerful guest editorial for Advance last week on the importance of tummy time that is well worth reading (or re-reading!).   Entitled Back to Sleep Tummy to Play  (Advance  8/1/12) she recaps some of the sobering statistics of the amount of time babies from birth to 2 now spend in a car seat (500 hours ...

  • In the Spirit of the Games

  • Some Promising Grants

    I am often asked if I know of any good grant opportunities specific to kids with special needs. My wish would be to have a full time grant researcher/writer at my fingertips as both searching for then applying for funds can be a daunting task.  For now, this concept will have to stay as just that...a wish, but I did come across a couple of ...

  • Stepping Up and Speaking Out

    In last month's blog, I reviewed the discussion from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) regarding the news tagline that ''Sensory Integration Therapies Lack Evidence''.  Basically the AAP put up a caution flag about research on SI therapy being ''limited and inconclusive.''  I stated a reminder that we all need to continuously ...
