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 ...
Working in a preschool with children ages 3 to 5 years old, I am occasionally approached by parents who have their children involved in private speech therapy sessions. Some choose to pursue therapy through local hospitals and medical facilities while others have taken their child to private therapists and/or companies that provide a myriad of ...
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 ...
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

Today I would like to continue my post discussion from last
week. So far, only one SLP has responded to my inquiry about using an iPad
with children ages 3-5 years old. Now, I do realize that we are less than a
week away from both Christmas and Hanukkah, so maybe therapists are much busier
than usual! However, I am also wondering if ...
I have a confession to make ... diagnostic assessment is one
of my most favorite aspects of my job!
So, needless to say, I am really enjoying this ongoing discussion
regarding assessments in early intervention! I love the entire process of
assessing children, observing and analyzing their behavior during the testing
and then of ...
Thank you to everyone who wrote in last week and shared
their experiences, preferences and reactions to the various testing materials
available to us as SLPs. I really enjoy hearing everyone's perspective and
feedback! I wanted to continue the discussion this week by asking a few more
questions and offering additional ...
Every 6 months or so, I like to recap and review popular
posts and the topics that seem to be most important to our readers. In
addition, I carefully comb through recent reader comments to make sure that
questions are being addressed and people are able to get the answers they are
seeking. Today's post will do just that, so please join me in ...
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 ...
