  • Verb Choices and Learning Opportunities

    Our daily 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 ...

  • White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress

    Millions of 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. For all of us who debated the colors of that dress (blue/black or white/gold), we had a ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
