There are many test tools on the market to use with young children. I think it is important to understand the information that each of these tools can yield and that testing should contain a play component, a parental report component, and a standardized testing component whenever possible. There are parent questionnaires and tools that rely ...
“Are you kidding?” I chuckled to myself at the thought of the title of this blog entry.
In grad school, I actually thought that you evaluated a toddler's speech and language skills by breaking out a standardized testing tool and you administered the test and that was that. Well, that sounds fabulous, but let me tell you all of the things that ...
I feel very fortunate to have battled my own bouts of anxiety and the
baby blues with the birth of one of my own children. When I was suffering of
this debilitating battle, I would wonder why? Why me? It's hard enough being a

Every year when the first of January rolls around, I like to acknowledge this yearly opportunity to take stock of the past and also prepare for the future. For me, 2013 was an extremely busy year professionally. It was filled with new experiences and challenges, such as supervising a graduate student, re-entering the homecare setting while also ...

Last week, I posted the parent responses regarding whether or not ...
Here are two very simple vegetable based recipes for picky eaters to enjoy! Both require just a few basic ingredients and are easy to prepare. Pieces are also tiny enough for little hands and mouths to handle independently! Both dishes are favorites in my home, and I hope they will be in yours!

Dealing with a picky eater (my very own 2-year-old daughter) on a daily basis can be quite daunting at times. She has a mother who loves to cook, bake, and sample a wide variety of foods and flavors as much as humanly possible. Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to taking culinary risks in the kitchen. In addition, I am extremely ...
Last week I wrote a post about using communication boards
in a preschool classroom. This week I wanted to write a brief but hopefully
thorough follow-up post about the effective use of such a tool in the classroom
setting, and to examine its obvious limitations.
One parent responded to last week's blog with the following:

Now we all have our New Year resolutions. Some people want
to lose weight, others hope to get better organized and many desire to spend
more time with their families and friends. Everyone has areas of their lives
that could use some restoring and most have the instinctual need to simply
become more balanced.
