lives are filled with a combination of both obligations and opportunities. Sometimes
we may even have difficulty distinguishing between the two. Having the chance
to work hard, to push oneself to accomplish tasks, and to learn new things is
an opportunity. Access to education is not universal – learning is in many ways
still a ...
Children with language disorders may have difficulty with subjective
personal pronouns “he/she”. They may use only “he”, only “she”, or appear to
alternate between the two terms indiscriminately. They may even use objective
personal pronouns “him/her” instead.
We can analyze what we hear and what we see with “he/she”.

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.

Each time we work with a client, we are learning about
successful intervention and so are our clients. When a target is met, a good
idea has been implemented – and when we share credit for these ideas, everyone
blooms. Developing a generous and giving mindset toward ideas and reducing

In accordance with my resolutions to 1) work on curricular material and goals, and 2) use materials available in the school, I've been working on written language with many of my students. Many of my students have really good narrative language goals (I love inheriting so many goals from other wonderful SLP's!) Narrative language is a key to ...
A couple of blogs ago, I discussed an amazing sensory bean bin I love to use in therapy. Since every SLP should have an arsenal of sensory items I want to share another fave!
These spinning tops are a huge motivation for kids who benefit from visual input. Attach the spinning top to the little shooter, wind it, and push the button to let go. It ...
In today's blog, I'm continuing my series regarding traditional board games that I've successfully used in speech-language sessions. Last time, I blogged about a two-in-one game tin that I love. This blog is about the second game in the tin, Taboo Jr. Like Outburst Jr., I don't think it is available in stores any more, but you can ...
I'm sure we are all more than ready for Thanksgiving next week!
This year, I'm offering thanks for my wonderful SLP team!
There are times when it's difficult to be the only SLP in a building, and it's so nice to meet with the district group for our monthly (and sometimes more frequent) meetings.
In my district there are 7 of us, and I admire ...
