  • The Gift of Being an Anxious New Mom

    I feel very fortunate to have battled my own bouts of anxiety and the baby blues with the birth of one of my own children. When I was suffering of this debilitating battle, I would wonder why? Why me? It's hard enough being a new mother of a baby that needs me 24/7, she cries, she poops—she never takes a break! Why, on top of all of that, ...

  • White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress

    Millions of people on social media and later mainstream media recently viewed a photo of a particular dress that stirred a national debate. Due to the background lighting and photographic exposure, people saw the two colors of the dress differently. For all of us who debated the colors of that dress (blue/black or white/gold), we had a ...

  • Questions about Communication Device Use in Treatment

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • This Conference Was a Winner!

    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 ...

  • Off to a Good Start: A Personal Reflection and Checklist

    How is your school year going so far? The past 2 years have been very challenging for me with regards to organization. Early in 2010, I switched jobs after returning from maternity leave. When I moved into my current position in February, not only was it the middle of the school year, but the caseload was hefty. I inherited a group of about ...

  • New School Year, New Ideas

    It certainly has been a busy (and a bit unusual) start to the school year! If the weather around here lately is any indication of what the winter and the rest of the school year is going to be like, we're in trouble! Since I've gone back to school ,  we've experienced a minor earthquake, were blown around and rained upon by the outer ...

  • Interview with a Private Clinician: Part 1

    In my last post, I talked about how I did a little bit of work in private practice and what I see as the advantages to keeping my day job in the schools! I wanted to share the expertise of Christopher Heistand, the SLP who started the clinic where I work over the summer. There are now three SLPs and three OTs who work together at this clinic. ...

  • A School of My Own

    Welcome back to school, fellow SLPs! Now, I realize if you are in other parts of the country, you might not start until after Labor Day, but where I live all the schools either started last week or this week. Either way - welcome back! I hope that all of you are starting the year refreshed from your summer off and ready to tackle another ...
