  • Spook-tacular Speech Sessions!

    If you are anything like me, you too love bringing the holidays into your therapy sessions! Not only is it practical and supports the classroom curriculum, but it also adds amusement and interest to your therapy sessions. Children love the holidays and are often intrigued by the decorations, colors and images that go along with each special time ...

  • Home Care Field Trips

    In the Birth to 3 Program in which I work, we are often encouraged to move beyond the home when delivering services. Conducting therapy sessions outside of the child's living space allows several exciting things to happen: therapists can see if the child is able to carry over learned skills, parents can observe and learn about their child in a new ...

  • Recipe: Apple Spice Cupcakes

    Happy Fall to All! Not only is this my favorite time of year, this is also my favorite time of the year to bake! However, as a busy working mom who is often short on time but doesn't want to skimp on flavor, making recipes that are a little bit homemade and a little bit pre-made helps to make it all possible! Today's recipe is a delicious ...

  • Taking the Child’s Lead and Thinking Outside of the Box

    What does it mean to take the child's lead during therapy?  In simple terms it means focusing on what or where the child's attention is at any particular moment in time, if appropriate of course. Taking the child's lead has been a successful approach in my sessions with children on the spectrum. I believe it is not something that a lot of ...

  • Recipe: A is for Apple!

    When I think of September, I think of returning to school, cool weather mornings and crisp juicy APPLES! Fall is on its way and going apple-picking is a really fun activity you can do with your children over the next few months. We have a local orchard that I love taking my children to that provides a hands-on apple-picking experience which is ...

  • A Late Talker and Prosody of Speech

    Today's post is the tale of a speech success story, as well as an observation and a look to the future! Over the last few days, I have been writing an annual IEP for a student I have worked with consistently for almost 2 years. When he first came to us, just a few days past his third birthday, he was able to say about 4-5 words consistently and ...

  • Using What You Have ... for Therapy!

    Last week, I wrote about our zoo-related lessons at preschool. Learning about the zoo has opened the doors of creativity in the classroom and all of the teachers and therapists have contributed their ideas and resources to the lesson planning! One of my contributions came from our recent family trip to the Philadelphia Zoo, which I wrote about ...

  • Hey Bear! What Do You Hear?

    Listen Up Bear is a fun app based on the classic kids tune ''The Bear Went Over the Mountain,'' but in this version it is not to see what he can see but instead to hear what he can hear! The app itself is designed by a speech-language pathologist from Canada but who is currently practicing in Mexico. The premise of the app is fairly simple: you ...

  • Extended School Year Tips!

    Now that June has arrived and summer is upon us, many of our speech and language students may have changes in their services due to summer staff changes, time off from school and family vacations that may interfere with services, etc.  If your child is in a special education preschool program, services most likely will continue through the ...

    If you work with children with autism or have difficulty regulating their emotions, you most likely have come across The Zones of Regulation. The Zones of Regulation itself is a curriculum that was developed by an occupational therapist named Leah Kuypers. She specializes in autism, ADHD and anxiety and developed the Zones, which incorporates ...
