As an SLP who helps treat and train those with communication devices, I
get lots of questions about device use. Sometimes families tell me that the
therapist or teacher that works with the user “does not want to use the device
until they are trained.” In some ways this seems reasonable, technology is
really scary, but to me who deals with it ...

If you've ever volunteered at a nursing home, you probably helped feed residents, walk them to various areas of the facility, or change the bed sheets. Residents have probably also enjoyed your fellowship during a game or craft activity, manicure or pedicure, being read to, or simply sharing their life story with open ...
Our work is noble. We are making improvements in the lives of our clients and their families. The communication and swallowing therapy that we provide has the capacity to change the course of a person's life, and it's time that we let people know about the great things that we do! It's common to be asked about your profession, from the friendly ...
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 ...
In my last entry, I wrote about a free, recycled object that
makes a wonderful therapy tool. Today I'm going to share and (hopefully) get,
some advice about something else I got for free!

Yup, it's a free and completely blank bulletin board. There
is a spot in our staff room where people put items they no ...
the winter holiday break coming to an end, I'm mentally preparing myself for my
newest venture as a school-based SLP -- the role of a cooperating teacher! As I
had mentioned in a previous
blog, from 1/3/12 through 3/9/12, I'll have a graduate student extern.
I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...
Now we all have our New Year resolutions. Some people want
to lose weight, others hope to get better organized and many desire to spend
more time with their families and friends. Everyone has areas of their lives
that could use some restoring and most have the instinctual need to simply
become more balanced.
For the past two years, I ...
at the start of the school year, I had mentioned four new therapy approaches I
was trying this year. About a month ago
I talked about one of them -- my use of adapted
story books to build early literacy skills in students with moderate to
severe disabilities. In today's blog, I
will talk about a second one.
Today I would like to continue my post discussion from last
week. So far, only one SLP has responded to my inquiry about using an iPad
with children ages 3-5 years old. Now, I do realize that we are less than a
week away from both Christmas and Hanukkah, so maybe therapists are much busier
than usual! However, I am also wondering if ...
series has predominantly been about picture books that SLPs can utilize in
language therapy, I suppose I am allowed to make some detours. I recently
re-read one of my all-time favorite books, The Curious
Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, and it
occurred to me how much I wanted to recommend this book to ...
