  • Ideas: The Power of Sharing

    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 instinctive proprietary reactions, may help us to empower ...

  • Learning with Small Steps

    When I was in middle school, I liked running and signed up for track team. When we met with the coach, she pointed to a far away water tower that was a tiny speck in the distance. “At the end of the season, you will be running to the water tower and back,” she announced.  I could barely see the water tower, and I did not ...

  • Your Clinical Space has a Voice

    There are occasional jokes about the types of rooms that are available for specialists who provide services to students in public school settings. Many school buildings are packed with classes, special activities, storage, and designated work/meeting areas. Clinical spaces may vary in size from an entirely empty classroom, a classroom ...

  • Helping Kids who HATE to Write

    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 ...

  • Another Sensory Favorite: Give it a Spin!

    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 ...

  • Don't Say That!

    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 ...

  • Happy Thanksgiving…Thank You SLP team!

    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 ...

  • Helping with Transitions!

    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 ...

  • I Sssssspy!

    I SSSSSSPY! 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: Scholastic's ...

  • Talking with My Brother

    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 ...
