This time of year, especially in the Northeast, it can seem
like everyone is struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder, including our
students. It's cold, it's dark, and the smallest thing can set us off! As SLPs,
we can be good counselors to our students and encourage positive self-talk for
all sorts of occasions.
Last year I wrote a
post, a la Oprah, about my favorite (speech therapy) things! Since it
is that time of year again, I am going to discuss one favorite, recycled item!
In the clinic I do some work for over the summer, there is
an amazing long, transparent tube. I cannot tell you how much I have coveted
this tube and wanted to take it ...
Thanksgiving is now over, and we'll soon be heading toward winter
holidays! Today I want to share a subscription website that I am thankful for
having rediscovered. I had access to it a few years ago, but it has really
improved and I now have more students who can benefit.
The website is http://www.new-2-you.com

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:

I'm working with
several young, bright children on the autism spectrum and I need a new,

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
blog post I recommended a book called ''The Spooky House of Horror'' by

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 ...
With Halloween coming next week, Pumpkin
Circle is a picture book you might want to consider using in your therapy.
Pumpkins are a surprisingly rich context for eliciting language! Kids love
them, and in a way, they are fruit, an activity (carving jack o'lanterns), a
scary symbol, and a link to the curriculum, all at the same ...
It scares me to
think that a child with ASD could have a tantrum on my watch. My knees -- they are a-shakin' at the
