  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • A Book for the /r/ Sound!

    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 ...

  • Book It, Pt. 24: A Quick Trip to Ireland and the Land of Illusions

    I have spent a fair amount of time here complaining about winter, so it's a good time to let you know that I LOVE St. Patrick's Day, mostly because to me it is the beginning of spring. Also, I am Darn Well Irish (the MacSweeneys, one of them being my grandfather, hail from County Cork, Ireland). This is sort of a weird holiday to target ...

  • Bulletin Board Update!

    I'm happy to see that I now have 10 responses to my ''Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!'' post. Some of you are so creative! Teresa 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 ...

  • Book It, Pt. 23: Have You Had Any Snow Days?

    In my previous post, I mentioned the quiet winter we have had in the northeast, and how I don't mind it at all! However, it's always nice to have a ''snow day'' school cancellation to let you catch up on work (or relaxation). Snow Day, by Patricia Lakin and Scott Nash, is a cute little picture book in which a group of kids with the ...

  • Book It, Pt. 22: Although I Don’t Like Snow...

    Kids do! I was skimming the shelves at Barnes & Noble one day when I saw the cute little picture book ''When it Starts to Snow,'' by Phillis Gershator and Martin Matje. The title instantly made me think, ''temporal structure!'' Through adorable illustrations and rhyming text, the book describes what a variety of animals do when it starts ...
