There’s always a small thread of sadness mixed in with the happiness when a client completes therapy.Our relationships with students are temporary. Sometimes they last a few years, and sometimes they last a few months or less. Yesterday, a student who has been making excellent progress on her articulation asked me, “What happens when I’m finished ...
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 ...
I have been enjoying using text for language therapy in the last few months, and I have discovered that I NEVER go wrong with Jan Brett books. The pictures are amazing; the stories have a good structure, and I particularly like the books that have a pictured hint for the next page. In the last few months, my students and I read some of the ...
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 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

The book is by Angie ...
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 ...
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
Snow Day, by Patricia Lakin and Scott Nash, is a cute little picture book in which
a group of kids with the ...
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 ...
I've always loved reading classic fairy tales with my students. Not
only are they great for their narrative structure, but they also play a
big role in our
Well, I really lucked out, because look what our
librarian's daughter painted on the wall right outside my office!
As I walk to my room with my younger ...
Books continue to be my heroes in
my school position, sometimes showing up to save me from ennui when I least
expect it. I was recently doing a pull-over sort of session in the literacy
center (the kindergarten class is nearby and my room is, well, not), and spied the
colorful cover of Alphabet Rescue, by Audrey Wood and her son, Bruce. ...
