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 ...
Dear Kathie: ''Chad is 5 years
old and ‘very' autistic and non-verbal. He covers his ears with his hands when
there is a loud noise, such as a fire alarm, or even when he anticipates a loud
noise, like a balloon that he thinks may pop. How can I help him, his classroom
teacher, and his parents? - Payton, speech-language pathologist
Dear Kathie: What are your
thoughts on using an iPad with the autistic population?'' - Mary, speech-language pathologist and
parent of a child with autism
Response: I like it. I
love it. I want some more of it. But, instead of calling it an iPad for
the autistic population, I think we should rename it a wePad. That is because WE ...
I'm working with
several young, bright children on the autism spectrum and I need a new,
creative way to teach the alphabet. I want to take them beyond rote memory
skills and into conversational speech. What kind of ideas do you have for me?
Tips: Have I got a
great, new, techie, alphabet chart to share ...
Part I I talked about the characteristics of
the right and left sides of the brain and how they do not dance together in people with autism/ASD. I gave you twenty signs
that I see that indicate how Mr. Left Brain and Mrs. Right Brain dance alone.
Part II I was on a kick
about strategies that SLPs bring to the table to assist ...
Everybody's brains are different
and certainly, the autistic brain connects in an unorthodox manner. Autism is
not curable, but there are many language strategies the SLP can do to assist in
organizing the brains of people with autism.
It is my theory that people with
autism do not cross hemispheres of the brain, from left to ...
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 ...
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 ...
Here I am at home getting ready for the calendar to turn
another month in less than 24 hours. Yes folks, August has arrived! Now, I'm
not sure what that means in other parts of the country, but where I live,
school starts in August. Actually, around here the school-aged kids here go
back to school before most of the college students have even ...
When I first started to become interested in using picture books as contexts for intervention in my public school SLP position, I was really happy to find Books are for Talking Too, by Jane Gebers. It was clearly just the resource I was looking for at the time - a guide specific to SLPs detailing the power of using picture books. Many great ...
