  • Trialing AAC with PECS Users

    Last month I did a survey asking for two topics from my state's annual convention you'd like to hear about. One of them was ''Strategies for Transitioning from PECs to SGD.'' I had the privilege of hearing Lori Frost, the co-author of the PECs training manual, speak on this topic. I learned so many things that I am just going to go ...

  • Book It, Pt. 24: A Quick Trip to Ireland and the Land of Illusions

    I have spent a fair amount of time here complaining about winter, so it's a good time to let you know that I LOVE St. Patrick's Day, mostly because to me it is the beginning of spring. Also, I am Darn Well Irish (the MacSweeneys, one of them being my grandfather, hail from County Cork, Ireland). This is sort of a weird holiday to target ...

  • Book It, Pt. 23: Have You Had Any Snow Days?

    In my previous post, I mentioned the quiet winter we have had in the northeast, and how I don't mind it at all! However, it's always nice to have a ''snow day'' school cancellation to let you catch up on work (or relaxation). Snow Day, by Patricia Lakin and Scott Nash, is a cute little picture book in which a group of kids with the ...

  • Fairy Tales in Speech Therapy!

    I've always loved reading classic fairy tales with my students. Not only are they great for their narrative structure, but they also play a big role in our culture.  Well, I really lucked out, because look what our librarian's daughter painted on the wall right outside my office!   As I walk to my room with my younger ...

  • Book It, Pt. 21: The Alphabet Comes to the Rescue

    Books continue to be my heroes in my school position, sometimes showing up to save me from ennui when I least expect it. I was recently doing a pull-over sort of session in the literacy center (the kindergarten class is nearby and my room is, well, not), and spied the colorful cover of Alphabet Rescue, by Audrey Wood and her son, Bruce. ...

  • An Awesome App!

    This summer I've been doing a little work for a speech clinic in my town. It's been a lot of fun, and one of the things I love most is their iPad®! I wrote about application of the iPad in speech therapy a few months ago, but I didn't even scratch the surface. I know that other bloggers and readers are much more knowledgeable about this topic ...

  • Book It: Picture Books and Literature-Based Intervention

    You might be surprised, given the topics I usually blog about here at ADVANCE (and elsewhere), that I actually enjoy working with books about as much as I do technology. It's easy to see the connection, though, when you think of books as a context through which we can address speech and language skills, just as a website can serve as a similar ...
