Today I'd like to share another group of apps that are geared towards young children called TinyHands: Educational APPS for Toddlers. One of my favorite aspects of these apps is that it lists the age for which each app is designed starting as young as 1+. These ...

  • Learning Apps and Games for Toddlers

    During the months of January through May 2012 I wrote several posts about apps that were appropriate and recommended for young children, especially those with speech and language delays/disorders.  It's been over two years and since then I have discovered many new wonderful apps and I'm sure even more yet have been created.

  • Pretzel Perfect: Summer Themes Continued

    Pretzels are VERY important to my hometown and where I live and work. The privately run ''Pretzel Museum'' opened in Philadelphia in 1993. And in 2003, the then Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell declared April 26 ''National Pretzel Day'' to acknowledge the importance of the pretzel to our state's history and economy.

  • Equipment Resource Lists

    One of the most frustrating parts of my job is being able to get the items the families I work with need when insurance won't cover it or the family can't afford it. Sometimes families need pieces of equipment to help their child be more mobile. Other times it could be something as simple as a knob puzzle or a simple shape sorter to work on ...
