Everyone loves power. Everyone needs words to attain power. We can empower our children with ASD by giving them POWER WORDS or we can leave them powerless.
Teaching skills to children with ASD is not enough. Colors, months, dates, counting, are not what make a person successful and functional in the world. This series of Kathie's Dozen Power ...
Both words begin the same. One is a season that lasts only several weeks. One is a syndrome that lasts a lifetime. Both are unpredictable at the core because they change daily. The changes are welcome in both of them ~ they mean growth to move life forward. The changes of autumn move us into a new season and times of ...
An SLP isn't a celebrity, but we have influence in our school settings and communities. There are many celebrities who are speaking out against bullying: Justin Bieber, Queen Latifah, Daniel Radcliffe, Ellen Degeneres and Anderson Cooper, just to name a few.
In the past few week's Autism Spectrum blogs, I've stated the language skills we ...
There are certain items that each SLP would not leave home without. Over all the years that I've worked with children on the autism spectrum, I find that a View Master is one of those treasures I always carry in my bag. As far as I know, it cannot be duplicated on an iPad or iPhone. It is not the same as flash cards or books. A View Master is ...
When do you elicit a
language sample? Certainly when you first see a child you would want to take a

Dear Kathie: ''Chad is 5 years
old and ‘very' autistic and non-verbal. He covers his ears with his hands when
there is a loud noise, such as a fire alarm, or even when he anticipates a loud
noise, like a balloon that he thinks may pop. How can I help him, his classroom
teacher, and his parents? - Payton, speech-language pathologist
Dear Kathie: ''My question concerns
Julie, who is a middle school student with ASD. She is bright, verbal, possibly
Asperger's, and is included in the regular classroom for most academics. The
problem is that she refuses to do any written classroom assignments when the
other students are doing theirs. She says ''No,'' lays her head on her ...
Dear Kathie: ''Larry speaks so loudly.
I can hear him coming from way down the hall in school. No one wants to sit by
him in the lunchroom and his teacher is pulling her hair out. I've talked to

suggestions? And is this really in the realm of speech therapy for a ...
