  • A Detour to the ASHA Convention!

    I am taking a brief departure from the soon-to-be-wrapped-up ''Book It'' series on using picture books in language interventions in order to report back from ASHA Convention in San Diego. I was super excited to attend this year's ''Divas + One Players'' Session: Language Intervention in Science and Social Studies: A Panel Discussion. ...

  • The Latest and Greatest Assessments for Children Ages 3-5

    This fall at the preschool where I practice, we have had an unusually high number of children in need of full evaluations all for various reasons. For some, they were simply due for their re-evaluations which happen every 2 years at this age in our district. For others, we had decided as a team that several children were in need of a ...

  • More Fall Fun!

    I am happy to share some good news for those of you who have been following the Speech in the Schools Blog over the past year. Last October in a blog post I recommended a book called ''The Spooky House of Horror'' by Charles Fuge, Ian Craig and Ron Van der Meer. I felt horrible to discover that it was a collectors' item and now costs a ...

  • Foamy, Fuzzy, and Bumpy Books!

    A couple of blogs ago, I wrote about several new therapy techniques/strategies/programs that I was trying with my students this year. Now that it is nearly the end of the first marking period (Friday!), I think I've had enough time and experience trialing these programs to give you my opinion of each in this blog. One of the four new ...

  • This Conference Was a Winner!

    I typically don't use my blog to ''advertise'' a particular therapy approach or a speaker. I am completely in favor of the ''eclectic'' approach to speech-language therapy. I take bits and pieces from a variety of therapy interventions/approaches/strategies and use what works best with my individual students. However, I'm always open to new ...

  • Book It, Part 14: Um, “Happy” Columbus Day!

    Many of us feel a little torn about this holiday at this point, with all that Native populations suffered as a result of European exploration and colonization. A 5th grade teacher, Lynn Penczar, who I had a great collaboration with (and still miss, as I have moved to a different school), introduced me to a great picture book that can be ...

  • Birth to 3: Two Stories of Success!

    If you have been reading this blog since its inception three years ago (the first post was published October 1, 2008) then you will know that when I began writing my weekly posts, I was working in a home-based birth to 3 program. It was that experience that prompted me to contact ADVANCE with the idea to create a speech and language therapy ...
