  • 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 ...

  • What's in a Name?

    It’s always exciting when someone gets a new communication device. It’s even more exciting when they have been waiting (because the old one broke). 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 ...

  • Reflections on PSHA, Part 1

    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 ...

  • Book It, Pt. 24: A Quick Trip to Ireland and the Land of Illusions

    I have spent a fair amount of time here complaining about winter, so it's a good time to let you know that I LOVE St. Patrick's Day, mostly because to me it is the beginning of spring. Also, I am Darn Well Irish (the MacSweeneys, one of them being my grandfather, hail from County Cork, Ireland). This is sort of a weird holiday to target ...

  • App: Monkey Preschool Lunchbox

    Today I want to share one of my favorite apps to use with preschoolers who have receptive and/or expressive language delays. It's called ''Monkey Preschool Lunchbox,'' and is a mere $0.99 to download onto your device. Below I have listed the overall layout of the app in bullet points. The concepts that the app addresses are in ...

  • Articulation Therapy with the iPad

    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 the full version of ...

  • Book It, Pt. 21: The Alphabet Comes to the Rescue

    Books continue to be my heroes in my school position, sometimes showing up to save me from ennui when I least expect it. I was recently doing a pull-over sort of session in the literacy center (the kindergarten class is nearby and my room is, well, not), and spied the colorful cover of Alphabet Rescue, by Audrey Wood and her son, Bruce. ...

  • A Group Session with the iPad

    During my first two weeks with the iPad, I used it solely during my individual therapy sessions. After having much success and feeling more confident about how to use the iPad appropriately, I decided to expand my horizons and try out my new passion in a group therapy session! In planning out the session, several questions came to ...

  • Free and Useful iPad Apps!

    So, after another week of using the iPad in many of my speech therapy sessions and after hours of my own exploration, I have a list of several FREE apps that you many find helpful for preschool-age children with speech and language delays.  These apps were not necessarily created for children with special needs. However, there are ...

  • Speech Therapy with an iPad!

    This past week, as promised, the Assistive Technology representative from our county paid me a welcomed visit, bringing with her the much anticipated iPad! Very exciting! When we met, she walked me through several of the applications that were previously downloaded onto the device. I quickly fell in love with a select few. I also learned ...
