  • First Class Clinicians

    Last week I met a skilled clinician who had recently relocated, transitioning from running a private practice in an urban environment to working in a rural school district. After our conversation, she shared the following sentiment: “I was encouraged by your own strong feelings that school-based clinicians aren't second class therapists and ...

  • Window into Stuttering

    As clinicians, many of us do not have a societally recognized form of disability. We have the privilege of able-ness. Our work ensures daily contact with individuals who may be identified by society and/or may self-identify as individuals with a disability.  Even though providing therapeutic services is our calling, we are still only able ...

  • Terminology and the Power of Plain Language

    Speech language pathologists use an impressive amount of technical terminology, also known as jargon. This is to be expected within any professional discipline, however, clinicians are regularly required to code-switch between high-level terminology and plain language.Back in my early days, I was presenting to a teacher and a young ...

  • White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress

    Millions of people on social media and later mainstream media recently viewed a photo of a particular dress that stirred a national debate. Due to the background lighting and photographic exposure, people saw the two colors of the dress differently. For all of us who debated the colors of that dress (blue/black or white/gold), we had a ...

  • Keeping Kids Safe Over the Summer: Social Media & Smart Phones!

    I have been thinking a lot about social media use in typically developing adolescents and adolescents with language impairments and disorders such as ADHD and autism. You might wonder what it has to do with us as SLPs, but in many schools appropriate use of social media and the Internet is part of the curriculum. I have been fortunate to work ...

  • Have You Discovered Dropbox?

    In my last blog, I wrote about the possibility of a professional change, and yes, in the time since, I have decided to make a change. It was not an easy decision, but I look forward to approaching my services through a slightly different lens. It was not only difficult cleaning out  my office of 16 years but also my computer!  As ...

  • Reflections on PSHA, Part 1

    Last time, I blogged about being a member of a state speech-language-hearing association. In that blog I mentioned my state association's upcoming annual convention. Today's post is about some of my experiences at the PSHA Convention. I'll write about the other presentations I attended in my next post. My time at the convention was split among ...

  • Book It, Part 25: You Did It!

    Every kid can benefit from the kind of positive reinforcement offered by the phrase, ''You did it!'' especially if it is offered in an exuberant voice. I say this because lately with a number of my younger and developmentally younger students I have been using the interactive book app Pat the Bunny, and the positive reinforcement ...

  • The Pinning SLP: Discovering Pinterest

    I find it amazing how the Internet has changed the world of speech-language pathology since I started working in the field. When I first started in the schools, I wrote my Individualized Education Plans by hand. (For anyone who has seen my handwriting, you can only imagine what torture that was for me!) Now we do them all online. If I wanted ...

  • An Online Discovery!

    Thanksgiving is now over, and we'll soon be heading toward winter holidays! Today I want to share a subscription website that I am thankful for having rediscovered. I had access to it a few years ago, but it has really improved and I now have more students who can benefit. The website is http://www.new-2-you.com Each week, there is a ...
