  • 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 ...

  • Reflections on PSHA, Part 1

    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 ...

  • Book It, Part 26: The Way to A...Better Day

    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 ...

  • Book It, Part 25: You Did It!

    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 ...
