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 ...
This is week 7 of my 8 week series highlighting the hallmarks of typical speech and language development in young children. Today's post will explore what normal language and grammar looks and sounds like for preschoolers in the 3 to 5 age group.
For parents, knowing what ''normal'' development looks in babies, toddlers and young children will ...
Last week's post was the first of a series of posts that will present and discuss the results from my Early Intervention Parent Survey. The survey focuses on both the Birth to 3 and the 3 to 5 program, asking parents for feedback regarding their experiences and that of their child. 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 ...
Sitting down to write today's post, that old familiar favorite holiday tune by Andy Williams, ''It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,'' popped into my head! Only right now for me, quite the opposite is true. Instead of sugarplums, I have IEP goals and progress monitoring dancing in my head! For now is the most demanding time of the year in the ...
Just as I am a member of the American Speech Language and
Hearing Association (ASHA), I am also a member of the Pennsylvania Speech-Language-Hearing Association (PSHA). PSHA has proven to be a wonderful resource
for me over the past few years.
A few weeks ago, PSHA sent out the final results
of a recent survey they conducted asking ...
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:
''My daughter used ...
This week I would like to share some of my personal and
professional reflections on using the iPad. I have been incorporating the
device into my therapy sessions for just one short month. However, over these
past four weeks I have seen some very positive changes in my sessions.
Here are several of them:
The iPad is EXCITING: The ...
This past week, as promised, the Assistive Technology
representative from our county paid me a welcomed visit, bringing with her the
much anticipated iPad! Very exciting!
When we met, she walked me through several of the
applications that were previously downloaded onto the device. I quickly fell in
love with a select few. I also learned ...
