Over the last 2 weeks a group of upper elementary girls and I have enjoyed an app named Cookie Next Door-Rainy Days.
This app is essentially an animated cartoon to which students provide the narrative using their voices. Cookie is a little guy who takes to the ocean on his boat and encounters an adventure with other characters including a huge ...
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 ...
Many children we work with do not see a link between their behavior and immediate positive consequences they can receive, let alone the connection between their behaviors and their long-term impressions on others. As SLPs, these students can be challenging in many ways, not only because it can be difficult for us to get them to participate in ...
When do you elicit a
language sample? Certainly when you first see a child you would want to take a
language sample. However, if the child is not comfortable on the initial
assessment, there is nothing written in stone that says that it has to be
completed the first time around. That in itself should tell you something.

A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing Amazon, and a
''Recommended for You'' item popped up. It was the book, ''The Pirate Who Couldn't Say 'Arrr'''!
I am trying to be a school-SLP-on-a-budget, but I couldn't
resist. I impulsively clicked on the ''1-Click'' ordering button, and the book
arrived two days later.
The book is by Angie ...
I'm happy to see that I now have 10 responses to my
''Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!'' post. Some of you are so creative!
shared this idea:
She covered the board with flannel and attached the Picture
Exchange Communication System (PECS) to it. I would love to have this in a
self-contained or preschool classroom and make it ...
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
Larry's mother and it's the same at home, in the library and at McDonald's. Any
suggestions? And is this really in the realm of speech therapy for a ...
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 ...
I'll admit it: I'm at bit rusty on working on /r/ sounds. This is the first time in four school years that my caseload has included /r/ students due to my caseload/classroom assignments. Back at my previous job I had case after case of /r/ students,
and most of the children who learned the sound were dismissed. Now that I'm back
into full /r/ ...
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
