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 ...
One hundred percent of children and adults with ASD are bullied at sometime. One hundred percent of the time, it hurts. I hope they are not bullied on a daily basis. I hope the hurt does not leave scars-physically or emotionally.
Perhaps, being bullied should be right up there on the new DSM criteria for Autistic Disorder as an indentifying ...
As SLP's we are often included as part of the team that transitions students from school to school, and grade-to-grade. We are often one consistent person who is a member for a child's team for many years; as a result we have a unique relationship with the child and family. In my district, we have lots of transition meeting with families and ...
The year is drawing to a close, and my ideas for therapy are
dwindling. The other day I pulled out a favorite software program that hadn't
seen the light of day for a long time. I'm not sure why I haven't used it
lately; it is the perfect therapy activity for the under 6 set:
Flash back about 25 years. To a school-based SLP, he'd be described as a child who stutters. There appears to be a genetic component to his stuttering, as his oldest sister demonstrated some mild stuttering at his age. He is the youngest of four children. It's a noisy household with lots of competition to talk and be heard. The severity of his ...
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 ...
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.
feel that ...
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 ...
Thank you! A special thank you to all of the SLPs who emailed pictures of their beloved pets to include in collages that we can all use to elicit language samples. It was so much fun to see the variety of who lives with you. I was amazed to find who shares your affection, and I know now to whom you talk to each night after work! These are ...
