  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • A School of My Own

    Welcome back to school, fellow SLPs! Now, I realize if you are in other parts of the country, you might not start until after Labor Day, but where I live all the schools either started last week or this week. Either way - welcome back! I hope that all of you are starting the year refreshed from your summer off and ready to tackle another ...
