  • Involving Parents in Early Intervention

    At our agency, we firmly believe in working alongside the parent and family to address speech and language delays in young children. We provide speech and language services in homes, parks, and day cares if that is the normal routine location that the family participates in. It would be a rare occasion if we were to exclude the parent or have the ...

  • Question Parents Carefully

    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 ...

  • Administering Tests to Toddlers

    “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 ...

  • Assessing Articulation in Toddlers

    It is common for parents to indicate they are concerned about their toddler’s speech sounds at age two. Although most of the time these concerns are typical and age appropriate, there are times when further evaluation or consideration for speech therapy is necessary. We have all heard baby-talk, or children who use phonological processes. ...

  • The Gift of Being an Anxious New Mom

    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 new mother of a baby that needs me 24/7, she cries, she poops—she never takes a break! Why, on top of all of that, ...

  • Child-Led vs. Adult-Led Therapy

    I think all of us in some way have a style to our therapy that prefers one or the other. I have made it my own challenge to be able to do both: the reason being that there should not just be one type of approach for all children. I feel like some kids thrive and respond better when they feel like they can lead the play in a session. Other ...

  • Off to a Good Start: A Personal Reflection and Checklist

    How is your school year going so far? The past 2 years have been very challenging for me with regards to organization. Early in 2010, I switched jobs after returning from maternity leave. When I moved into my current position in February, not only was it the middle of the school year, but the caseload was hefty. I inherited a group of about ...

  • 2011-2012 School Year Kick-Off!

    Despite events like Hurricane Irene pummeling the East Coast, I really love the end of August - this time of the year has always been one of my favorites. The weather in the northeast part of the country begins to change, becoming more unpredictable. The sky turns temperamental and a cool breeze will begin to cut through the summer heat. At ...

  • The Speech Spirit: Remembering Fathers

    I would like to begin today's post by saying I hope all the dads out there who take the time to read this blog had a wonderful Father's Day this past Sunday! Every once in a while we have a father write in and I always enjoy listening to their perspective. Dads are invaluable to the development of their children and moms really need their ...
