students. It's cold, it's dark, and the smallest thing can set us off! As SLPs,
we can be good counselors to our students and encourage positive self-talk for
all sorts of occasions.
series has predominantly been about picture books that SLPs can utilize in
language therapy, I suppose I am allowed to make some detours. I recently
re-read one of my all-time favorite books, The Curious
Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, and it
occurred to me how much I wanted to recommend this book to ...
I am taking a brief departure from the soon-to-be-wrapped-up ''Book It''

the first marking period (Friday!), I think I've had enough time and experience
trialing these programs to give you my opinion of each in this blog. One of the
four new ...
It scares me to
think that a child with ASD could have a tantrum on my watch. My knees -- they are a-shakin' at the
thought. It will happen, and when it does, what will I do?

tantrums. They hit and pound. They flail. They scream. They may bang their
heads against a wall or throw items. They may spit or ...
I have always enjoyed children's literature, and enjoy using
children's books in my therapy sessions. I always hope that I'm doing the
books, and my students' goals, justice. Because of this, I really enjoyed the

laughter and attention/focus for the very young autistic mind. The purpose of
these two blogs is to mesh the right side of the brain with the left side of
the brain and to help a person with ASD ''dance'' in a more synchronized fashion.

Many of us feel a little torn
about this holiday at this point, with all that Native populations suffered as
a result of European exploration and colonization. A 5th grade teacher, Lynn
