If I only had a brain.
In last week's blog I talked about the characteristics of
discussed, ''Should You Ask a Non-Verbal
Child a Question?''
that's a good question. My answer is: usually not. Instead, make statements!

Here we are today, all grown up as speech-language pathologists and teaching others how to take turns in life. In fact, the flavors ...

I never told George Lucas this, nor did he ask, but it was because of ...
Joint Attention is two people sharing the same point of attention. It is being in the same moment at the same time. It is a basic skill for learning - EVERYTHING. Think of joint attention as the wall that supports Humpty Dumpty. The wall holds Humpty up, until of course, someone pushes him off.
