  • Give Something, Get Something

    As a new school year approaches (a little over a week away), and as I had mentioned in a previous blog, there are lots of changes happening.

We, as support staff, are busy helping to prepare for the celebration while also wrapping up the many evaluations, annual IEPs and monthly billing that are all due ASAP. In the midst of this, our school is ...

  • August Already?

    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 ...

  • Book It, Part 8: More Resources to Support Using Picture Books in Therapy

    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 ...

  • Honoring Our Readers

    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 ...

    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.

  • O-M Debate: A Reflection and Follow-up

    Thank you all so much for sharing your comments and research in our oral motor debate! As Lisa, CCC-SLP from VT stated, I ''certainly stirred the pot'' with last week's post. I did want to get us talking, but I didn't mean to create such a firestorm! This debate reminded me that I am part of a very devoted and passionate profession of women and ...

  • "Daily Routines" and Other Changes in EI

    In today's post I'd like to discuss an issue that has become quite pressing within the county where I work as a speech therapist in early intervention. Part of why I raise this issue is to see if other therapists out there across the country and world-wide have been focusing on this element of therapy as well. Generally speaking, one of the main ...
