  • Another Sensory Favorite: Give it a Spin!

    A couple of blogs ago, I discussed an amazing sensory bean bin I love to use in therapy. Since every SLP should have an arsenal of sensory items I want to share another fave! These spinning tops are a huge motivation for kids who benefit from visual input. Attach the spinning top to the little shooter, wind it, and push the button to let go. It ...

  • Don't Say That!

    In today's blog, I'm continuing my series regarding traditional board games that I've successfully used in speech-language sessions. Last time, I blogged about a two-in-one game tin that I love. This blog is about the second game in the tin, Taboo Jr.  Like Outburst Jr., I don't think it is available in stores any more, but you can ...

  • Treating Prosody in Young Children

    The last two weeks I have been investigating the development of prosody and its importance in speech and language development. In my research of prosody over the past few weeks, I have found that information is somewhat limited. The information that I found remains mainly connected to Asperger's and Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as CAS ...

  • Why Prosody Matters

    Last week, I wrote a post acknowledging the link between late talkers and a poor prosody of speech. Since then I have been researching the connection between the two, what it means for the children we work with and how it can be addressed effectively in speech therapy sessions. Here is one of the most helpful resources I have found: On the ...

  • A Late Talker and Prosody of Speech

    Today's post is the tale of a speech success story, as well as an observation and a look to the future! Over the last few days, I have been writing an annual IEP for a student I have worked with consistently for almost 2 years. When he first came to us, just a few days past his third birthday, he was able to say about 4-5 words consistently and ...

  • Play & Be Rejuvenated!

    Two summers ago in 2011 I wrote a post entitled, A Vacation from Speech Therapy! The purpose of the post was to encourage parents of children diagnosed with autism to seek out alternative activities for their children for the summer months. The post suggests this for children whose speech services had been suspended for the summer or for families ...

  • Hey Bear! What Do You Hear?

    Listen Up Bear is a fun app based on the classic kids tune ''The Bear Went Over the Mountain,'' but in this version it is not to see what he can see but instead to hear what he can hear! The app itself is designed by a speech-language pathologist from Canada but who is currently practicing in Mexico. The premise of the app is fairly simple: you ...

  • Extended School Year Tips!

    Now that June has arrived and summer is upon us, many of our speech and language students may have changes in their services due to summer staff changes, time off from school and family vacations that may interfere with services, etc.  If your child is in a special education preschool program, services most likely will continue through the ...

  • Speech Therapy for Cerebral Palsy

    This week I am continuing my look at the condition of Cerebral Palsy (CP). Last week's post discussed some of the basic facts surrounding the condition and the overall affect CP can have on an individual. This week I am narrowing the focus and will look at how speech therapy can benefit a child who has been diagnosed with CP. According to the ...
