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. ...
I'm working with
several young, bright children on the autism spectrum and I need a new,
creative way to teach the alphabet. I want to take them beyond rote memory
skills and into conversational speech. What kind of ideas do you have for me?
Tips: Have I got a
great, new, techie, alphabet chart to share ...
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

Children with ASD have
tantrums. They hit and pound. They flail. They scream. They may bang their
heads against a wall or throw items. They may spit or ...

laughter and attention/focus for the very young autistic mind. The purpose of
these two blogs is to mesh the right side of the brain with the left side of
the brain and to help a person with ASD ''dance'' in a more synchronized fashion.

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

Part I I talked about the characteristics of
