  • Terminology and the Power of Plain Language

    Speech language pathologists use an impressive amount of technical terminology, also known as jargon. This is to be expected within any professional discipline, however, clinicians are regularly required to code-switch between high-level terminology and plain language.Back in my early days, I was presenting to a teacher and a young ...

  • Verb Choices and Learning Opportunities

    Our daily lives are filled with a combination of both obligations and opportunities. Sometimes we may even have difficulty distinguishing between the two. Having the chance to work hard, to push oneself to accomplish tasks, and to learn new things is an opportunity. Access to education is not universal – learning is in many ways still a ...

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 ...

  • School's Over: It's a Wrap!

    I'm writing this blog on my second full day of summer break. Several bags are nearly-packed from my upcoming vacation. I realize that depending on what part of the country you are in, when you started your year,  and how many snow days you had this past winter, many of you are probably still in school. I'm not trying to make ...

  • Feedback on Feedback

    I admit it. I'm one of those crazy Candy Crush Saga addicts. It all started over a year ago when I had minor knee surgery and spent the better part of two days resting on the sofa with my leg propped up. So I'm sure you're all wondering, ''What in the word could Candy Crush Saga possibly have to do with school-based speech therapy?''

  • ‘Tis the Season!

    No, not the holiday season (it's only April!). I'm talking about yard sale season! In my part of suburban Pennsylvania, signs advertising upcoming yard sales are sprouting up outside of neighborhoods left and right. All school-based SLPs should get excited when yard sale season starts. Why? Yard sale season is prime time to acquire some ...

  • Checking In: How is your year going so far?

    As the 2013 fall term draws to an end, I find myself reflecting upon the big change I made in September! After 16 years in the same school and school district, I changed to a neighboring district. I want to share some of the things I have learned over the last 4 months.... It's nice to know that there are SO MANY schools full of hard working ...

  • Being Thankful

    I am writing this blog as I'm enjoying my last day off from Thanksgiving break. This break is a much-needed one for me as there were no days scheduled off for teachers in my district since Labor Day!  Through reading of other online SLP discussion groups, blogs, and in conversations with other school-based SLPs I know, the consensus is ...

    There are more and more school speech therapy blogs popping up all over the internet, and in one I read recently, the SLP wrote about her week in therapy!  (Check it out here: http://oldschoolspeech.blogspot.com/2013/11/therapy-week-in-review-11152013.html) I loved reading this, and am definitely going to look into some of the fun activities ...
