  • Free APPS for AAC!

    It's been fun this year to experiment with some free AAC IPad apps for a couple of non/low verbal students. Here are some of my finds! Sounding Board was recommended by an SLP at a local Children's Hospital. It's free, easy to use, and you can import pictures from your photo gallery, or take your own.  When I needed pictures for ''more'' ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Book It, Pt. 22: Although I Don’t Like Snow...

    Kids do! I was skimming the shelves at Barnes & Noble one day when I saw the cute little picture book ''When it Starts to Snow,'' by Phillis Gershator and Martin Matje. The title instantly made me think, ''temporal structure!'' Through adorable illustrations and rhyming text, the book describes what a variety of animals do when it starts ...

  • 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. ...

  • Book It, Pt. 20: A Fun Look at "Non"-Fiction

    As kids progress through the grades, the reading material and overall content within the classroom shifts from being narrative or story-based to being more expository. Kids are expected to deal with real-life content and facts and (hopefully) go beyond the basic details to do more advanced thinking within the curriculum. That said, ...
