Last time, I blogged about being a member of a state speech-language-hearing association. In that blog I mentioned my state association's upcoming annual convention. Today's post is about some of my experiences at the PSHA Convention. I'll write about the other presentations I attended in my next post.
My time at the convention was split among ...
week, Sam asked a great question: if
I could give one single word that best describes what autism is or how it feels
to have autism, what would it be? That single word is anxiety.
This week, I
want to give you some techniques to use with people with autism to ease that
high anxiety level they suffer. And I do mean suffer. Anxiety ...
In my last entry, I wrote about a free, recycled object that

I've blogged about many of the
presenters, their platforms, programs, ideas, and sessions that I was privileged

was trying this year. About a month ago

severe disabilities. In today's blog, I
will talk about a second one.

better time to teach social skills to children with ASD than at Christmas!
would so approve.
believe that all children with autism want to please their parents, teachers,
friends, Santa and yes, their speech therapist. I believe they don't always know
how. In fact, I know they don't know how to make the ...
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
