Sometimes they last a few years, and sometimes they last a few months or less. Yesterday, a student who has been making excellent progress on her articulation asked me, “What happens when I’m finished ...
people on social media and later mainstream media recently viewed a photo of a particular
dress that stirred a national debate. Due to the background lighting and
photographic exposure, people saw the two colors of the dress differently.

In my last post, I talked about how much I enjoy using the school library and librarian as a resource for speech therapy.
