  • 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 ...

    Today's post is the tale of a speech success story, as well as an observation and a look to the future!

  • 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 ...

    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 ...

  • Speech Consultations and Home Care

    Last week I shared that I would be back on the road joining our Early Intervention homecare team once again for a few visits a week. I am still working in the preschool for the majority of my week; however I have added several Birth to 3 homecare families to my caseload as well. I also shared that since I left homecare roughly 3 years ago, some ...

  • On the Road Again!

    Due to changes at the workplace, which are mainly fiscally driven, my current work position is expanding and I will no longer treat children solely in the preschool. Now, some of my days will be split as I will be back on the road in homecare therapy for a few hours a week. It's been more than 3 years now since I left homecare and the birth to ...

  • Springtime Skills

    Today I'd like to share a fun and inexpensive speech and language activity that would definitely be a classroom hit but could also be reproduced at home as well! ''Springtime Mystery Box'' This is an idea that one of the teachers I work with and I concocted to help the children in our preschool classrooms to IMAGINE, DESCRIBE, GUESS and of ...
