  • Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!

      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 ...

  • Singing in the New Year

    I do not make New Year's resolutions, but I do set goals for myself, and one of them is to perpetually look for new ways to treat patients that are fun and creative in nature. On a recent commute to work, I was excited to hear a story on NPR's Morning Edition: ''Singing Therapy Helps Stroke Victims Speak Again.'' I immediately thought ...

  • When I was a Student Teacher...

    With 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.  As I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...

  • Give Yourself a High Five in 2012!

    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 ...

  • Why I Love to Work With New Graduates and Students

    This year I have the honor to supervise a CFY clinician, and I couldn't be happier about it. While supervision does require some extra work and scheduling considerations, I find I get a great benefit from working with both students and new clinicians, particularly in the SNF setting. I do love the fact that ASHA sets up the CFY year ...

  • Behavior Management Through Adventure

    Back 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. I spend ...

  • AAC for Preschoolers

    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 ...

  • Teacher? Student? Both?

    I'm 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 ...

  • I’m Thankful For

    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 ...

  • The Value of Observation in Diagnostic Assessment

    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 ...
