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!
Check this out...
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

than usual! However, I am also wondering if ...
always excited about new experiences and expanding my horizons at work. This
school year has been no exception. At the start of this school year, I blogged
about four new therapy interventions/methods I'm trying this year. So far, I've
followed up on one (re: using ''Building With Stories'' to modify books for
students with severe ...
Thanksgiving break is so close I can almost
smell the turkey! If any of you are anything like me, you really NEED (and
deserve) this break! There's a lot about working as a school-based SLP that is
stressful, agitating, time-consuming, irritating...you name it! Anything from
budget cuts, to paperwork, to time constraints, to crazy ...
I have a confession to make ... diagnostic assessment is one
of my most favorite aspects of my job!
So, needless to say, I am really enjoying this ongoing discussion
regarding assessments in early intervention! I love the entire process of
assessing children, observing and analyzing their behavior during the testing
and then of ...
Thank you to everyone who wrote in last week and shared
their experiences, preferences and reactions to the various testing materials
available to us as SLPs. I really enjoy hearing everyone's perspective and
feedback! I wanted to continue the discussion this week by asking a few more
questions and offering additional ...
I typically don't
use my blog to ''advertise'' a particular therapy approach or a speaker. I am
completely in favor of the ''eclectic'' approach to speech-language therapy. I
take bits and pieces from a variety of therapy
interventions/approaches/strategies and use what works best with my individual
students. However, I'm always open to new ...
