With only a month left to go in this school year, I thought I better get back to a blog I wrote way back at the beginning of the school year. I had talked about four new approaches/therapy models/interventions that I'd be using this year — so far I've only blogged about two of them (Behavior Management Through Adventure and using the ...
Dear Kathie: ''Do you
always take a language sample as part of an assessment with a verbal child or
adult with ASD? If so, what do you look for and how do you elicit the
conversation?'' - Adrian, speech-language pathologist
My Response: Thank you for asking
about the assessment aspect for a child/adult with ASD. I feel there are three ...
In last week's blog post, ''The iPad Becomes a wePad for Autism,''
I encouraged you to develop a relationship between the iPad, the child and another
person, rather than letting the child with autism treat it as a ''thing.''
Let's call that
with the iPad. That's when we can turn it into a wePad and make those applications come
Dear Kathie: What are your
thoughts on using an iPad with the autistic population?'' - Mary, speech-language pathologist and
parent of a child with autism
Response: I like it. I
love it. I want some more of it. But, instead of calling it an iPad for

Part I I talked about the characteristics of
the right and left sides of the brain and how they do not dance together in people with autism/ASD. I gave you twenty signs

Part II I was on a kick
about strategies that SLPs bring to the table to assist ...
Everybody's brains are different
and certainly, the autistic brain connects in an unorthodox manner. Autism is
not curable, but there are many language strategies the SLP can do to assist in
organizing the brains of people with autism.
It is my theory that people with
autism do not cross hemispheres of the brain, from left to ...
With the immense popularity of
mobile devices and apps, many developers are creating apps that are actually
picture books! Some are GREAT, some are good, and some are neither. I see these
new apps as falling into two categories: ''new'' books that have never been
published and app versions of popular trade books.
An additional, and in my ...
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 ...
This is ''The Star Wars Connection to ASD: Episode II,'' a continuation of last week's blog using quotes from Star Wars fame and connecting them to ASD. I see these quotes through the eyes of an SLP who has worked with hundreds of children and adults with ASD. Also, through the heart of a parent who has journeyed down the road of ASD. I ...
If you know my area of focus at all, you know it's hard for me to stay away from tooting the technology trumpet for too long. For the past several posts, I have been writing about specific picture books that can provide a great context for speech and language lessons. It's helpful to know about some online resources that support that infusion of ...
