  • Behaviors in Young Children

    Behaviors and speech delays tend to go hand-in-hand, and deciphering which is causing which can be a very frustrating task. Judging and offering opinions right away, I have learned, can come back and hurt the parent/therapist relationship. I try to remember that kids and parents are truly doing the best that they can in the moment. So what to ...

  • 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 ...

  • What's in a Name?

    It’s always exciting when someone gets a new communication device. It’s even more exciting when they have been waiting (because the old one broke). Yesterday, Corey brought me his brand new device to set up. He looked at the student that is working with me and said, “I’ve named this one ‘Sky.’” Corey’s last communication device was named ...

  • Early Interventionists: Who We Are

    As an early interventionist, we are many, many things. We are counselors, as we are the shoulder for the parent to cry on when they find out that their child, just a baby, is already falling behind. We are teachers, and what we do will impact the child's interest in learning or not. We are travelers, visiting our clients in homes, parks and ...

  • Speech Therapy at Preschool and Daycare

    Working as a vendor for Golden Gate Regional Center in the San Francisco Bay Area, we adhere to the policies of providing speech therapy in the child's natural environment. The Natural Environment policy indicates that services need be provided at home and in the child's community -- not in a doctor's office, or other sterile environment that is ...

  • Navigating Tough Early Intervention Evaluations

    I can imagine it must be a nerve-racking process to allow a stranger, even a professional (an MFT, SLP, OT or MD), into your two-year-old's world to conduct ''an evaluation'' of their skills. Parents tend to feel like the evaluation process of their child is a report card of themselves. Being a mother of three children myself, I can't even begin ...

  • Gestational Diabetes and Newborn Hearing Risks

    By Christine Cubelo, COHC When my father went to his doctor for a check-up and his A1C test results came back abnormal, it elicited a sense of urgency for him to warn me of being potentially pre-diabetic. Given this newly learned term, I decided to do a bit of research, and as an audiometrist, I was amazed to find there is a significant ...

  • Tips for Families Relocating

    Today I visited one of my homecare families for their weekly speech therapy appointment. Early in our session, mom shared that they have been making plans to move to a neighboring state by the end of this month. Afraid of losing services for her daughter, she then asked if our therapists would be able to travel to their new home which will now be ...

  • ADHD and Occupational Therapy

     When I was in second grade in the 1950s, Timmy was a boy in class who received much attention for consistently being out of his seat in class.  Mrs. Goldberg frequently scolded him and demanded that he stay seated.  He often vomited in class so pupils laughed at; he seemed to have few friends.  Was Timmy simply a product of ...
