  • 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 ...

Young children that do not say one word, yet have such a strong connection to their mothers that they quickly develop an intuitive understanding of how they are feeling. It is a phenomenon that I have seen time and time again.Many ...

  • 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.

  • Behaviors in Young Children

    Behaviors and speech delays tend to go hand-in-hand, and deciphering which is causing which can be a very frustrating task. Judging and offering opinions right away, I have learned, can come back and hurt the parent/therapist relationship. I try to remember that kids and parents are truly doing the best that they can in the moment. So what to ...

  • 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 ...
