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

Dear Kathie: ''Chad is 5 years
old and ‘very' autistic and non-verbal. He covers his ears with his hands when
there is a loud noise, such as a fire alarm, or even when he anticipates a loud
noise, like a balloon that he thinks may pop. How can I help him, his classroom
teacher, and his parents? - Payton, speech-language pathologist
Dear Kathie: ''My question concerns
Julie, who is a middle school student with ASD. She is bright, verbal, possibly
Asperger's, and is included in the regular classroom for most academics. The
problem is that she refuses to do any written classroom assignments when the
other students are doing theirs. She says ''No,'' lays her head on her ...
to Include in a Language Sample, Pt. I,'' I expressed how important I feel a language sample is to complete an
assessment for a verbal child or adult on the autism spectrum. I told you what
to look for during a language sample and gave you an example of how I utilize a
puzzle to elicit conversation with young children. When taking ...
Dear Kathie: ''Do you
always take a language sample as part of an assessment with a verbal child or
adult with ASD? If so, what do you look for and how do you elicit the

with the iPad. That's when we can turn it into a wePad and make those applications come
I was hoping to share some photos of bulletin boards in response to my last blog, ''Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!'' in today's post, but I didn't get any pictures. I did, however, get some great ideas in the comments
section! If you are interested, check it out! There are
some wonderful ideas from some creative people.
However, I DO want to ...
Dear Kathie: What are your
thoughts on using an iPad with the autistic population?'' - Mary, speech-language pathologist and
parent of a child with autism
Response: I like it. I
love it. I want some more of it. But, instead of calling it an iPad for
the autistic population, I think we should rename it a wePad. That is because WE ...
With Halloween coming next week, Pumpkin
Circle is a picture book you might want to consider using in your therapy.
Pumpkins are a surprisingly rich context for eliciting language! Kids love
them, and in a way, they are fruit, an activity (carving jack o'lanterns), a
scary symbol, and a link to the curriculum, all at the same ...
Part I I talked about the characteristics of
the right and left sides of the brain and how they do not dance together in people with autism/ASD. I gave you twenty signs
that I see that indicate how Mr. Left Brain and Mrs. Right Brain dance alone.
Part II I was on a kick
about strategies that SLPs bring to the table to assist ...
