It’s always exciting when someone gets a new communication
device. It’s even more exciting when they have been waiting (because the old
Yesterday, Corey brought me his brand new device to set up.
He looked at the student that is working with me and said, “I’ve named this one
‘Sky.’” Corey’s last communication device was named ...
The last two weeks I have been investigating the development of prosody and its importance in speech and language development. In my research of prosody over the past few weeks, I have found that information is somewhat limited. The information that I found remains mainly connected to Asperger's and Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as CAS ...
Happy spring! This week is ''R'' week at our school, and one of the themes the children are learning about is the rainforest. Tropical Ice Cream is a fabulously delicious recipe that the occupational therapist at our school created. The dish turned out to be a fun, educational and wonderful sensory experience for even our pickiest of ...
Thank you to everyone who has been writing in over these
past few weeks regarding the iPad apps and the many ways that the iPad can be
used in speech therapy sessions. I love hearing your feedback and the various
ways you are using these apps in your sessions!
This week I would like to share my next iPad passion, namely

I've been helping with two groups/summer camps at the
clinic this summer. I've been trying to make it as much fun for the kids as
possible, while targeting speech and language goals. As I racked through my brain

I created various pictures to match the items we had ...
Although this blog post will not get posted onto the site
until Tuesday, May 10th, I am writing it two days before on Sunday
night as I so often do before the Tuesday posting. Today was Mother's Day, 2011,
and here in the northeast section of the U.S. the sun was shining, the sky was
a bright blue, and we enjoyed a glorious Sunday with dear ...
Sitting in ASHA convention sessions, I found my brain pumping with ideas....ideas to blog, ideas to use at school with my students and ideas to share with my colleagues and coworkers.
One mild constructive criticism I have however for several of the sessions I attended would be the lack of looking at the big picture. What do I mean by that? ...
A good friend of mine called recently for some advice. She and her family had dinner with some friends over the weekend. Both of them have kiddos the same age. During their dinner play date, her friend confided that she had some ''concerns'' about her little girl. Nearing the two and a half year mark, she has yet to be able to feed herself and ...
I would like to take a moment to thank all of you who commented on my last post A New Adventure Begins. Thank you for your prayers and kind words. It is so nice to hear your voices echoing on the blog the same situations and experiences as my own. It is reassuring to know that I am not alone, although I truly know that I am not which is why I ...
