  • A Winner and a Question!

    I have a winner! I would like to send Shannon, from Grandville Public Schools in Michigan, a copy of the Pirate Who Couldn't Say ''Arr!'' Shannon, please send me your address at SLPALEX1@gmail.com. Shannon was the eighth commenter - ''8'' in this case being the magic number! I really appreciated the comments and was pleased to get one in my ...

  • Let’s Solve Some Problems!

    One of my favorite parenting blogs often publishes ''quandaries'' and asks parents to respond with their input. I thought this was a great idea, especially since I'm perpetually in a quandary. I thought that I would write about a quandary in our field from time to time and invite readers to respond. Also, feel free to send your quandaries to me ...

  • Books and Manuals for the New Graduate

    This week I'd like to continue with specific therapy material suggestions for new graduates and the books and manuals that have worked for me, with a focus on cognitive-linguistic resources. Cognitive-linguistic therapy is a very important aspect of our work in geriatrics and long-term care (LTC). At the very least, we should be supporting ...

  • Book It, Part 18: A View from the Mind of...

    Although this series has predominantly been about picture books that SLPs can utilize in language therapy, I suppose I am allowed to make some detours. I recently re-read one of my all-time favorite books, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, and it occurred to me how much I wanted to recommend this book to ...

  • Simple, Inexpensive Communication Therapy Ideas

    How many of you have a budget for therapy and/or diagnostic materials at your workplace? Budgets are always limited, and I tend to request only materials and items that I know are patient-specific (communication books, etc.) to be purchased by the facility. I tend to buy my own therapy books because I prefer to create my own ...

  • New School Year, New Ideas

    It certainly has been a busy (and a bit unusual) start to the school year! If the weather around here lately is any indication of what the winter and the rest of the school year is going to be like, we're in trouble! Since I've gone back to school ,  we've experienced a minor earthquake, were blown around and rained upon by the outer ...

  • Book It, Part 8: More Resources to Support Using Picture Books in Therapy

    When I first started to become interested in using picture books as contexts for intervention in my public school SLP position, I was really happy to find Books are for Talking Too, by Jane Gebers. It was clearly just the resource I was looking for at the time - a guide specific to SLPs detailing the power of using picture books. Many great ...

  • Service Delivery Models: Supporting Students Who Aren't "Ours"

    In all my discussions of service delivery models, whether direct or indirect ones, all the students I've talked about supporting were ones who were already identified/had IEPs in place, which include either direct and/or indirect services from a speech-language pathologist. However, in looking at the overall population of an elementary ...

  • Carryover: Practice for Parents

    Today's post is about maximizing the work we do in the classroom by promoting carryover at home. This topic was inspired by one of the requests shared during the February SLP poll, which specially asked for: ''Support and ideas to give parents to help them work on skills between therapy visits'' Daily practice and reinforcement is very important ...

  • Collaboration: The Literacy Specialist

    In my last post, I talked about how much I enjoy using the school library and librarian as a resource for speech therapy. Today, I'm going to talk about another important person at my school, Brenda the literacy specialist! The literacy specialist is not a special educator. Rather, she is someone who works with all teachers and students and ...
