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 ...
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.

language therapy, I suppose I am allowed to make some detours. I recently

Part II I was on a kick
about strategies that SLPs bring to the table to assist ...
Everybody's brains are different
and certainly, the autistic brain connects in an unorthodox manner. Autism is
not curable, but there are many language strategies the SLP can do to assist in

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
