  • Verb Choices and Learning Opportunities

    Our daily lives are filled with a combination of both obligations and opportunities. Sometimes we may even have difficulty distinguishing between the two. Having the chance to work hard, to push oneself to accomplish tasks, and to learn new things is an opportunity. Access to education is not universal – learning is in many ways still a ...

  • Advocates for Acceptance

    In our practice we recognize differing communication and learning abilities. As clinicians, we work to increase our clients’ access to social opportunities and interactions. We understand that all people have a unique way of expressing their thoughts and ideas. Within the nature of the human condition, skills vary across domains, and ...

  • White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress

    Millions of 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. For all of us who debated the colors of that dress (blue/black or white/gold), we had a ...

  • "What Do You Do? Noble Work!"

    Our work is noble. We are making improvements in the lives of our clients and their families. The communication and swallowing therapy that we provide has the capacity to change the course of a person's life, and it's time that we let people know about the great things that we do! It's common to be asked about your profession, from the friendly ...

  • A Lack of Autism Training

    To date, my graduate student extern (referred to as ''student teacher'' from here on out for the sake of convenience) has been with me for two weeks now. I'm hoping she has learned a lot so far, as I know I have learned things from her already. Having a student teacher really has caused me to do some self-reflecting on my own therapy and ...

  • Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!

      In my last entry, I wrote about a free, recycled object that makes a wonderful therapy tool. Today I'm going to share and (hopefully) get, some advice about something else I got for free! Check this out...   Yup, it's a free and completely blank bulletin board. There is a spot in our staff room where people put items they no ...

  • When I was a Student Teacher...

    With the winter holiday break coming to an end, I'm mentally preparing myself for my newest venture as a school-based SLP -- the role of a cooperating teacher! As I had mentioned in a previous blog, from 1/3/12 through 3/9/12, I'll have a graduate student extern.  As I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...

  • Behavior Management Through Adventure

    Back at the start of the school year, I had mentioned four new therapy approaches I was trying this year.  About a month ago I talked about one of them -- my use of adapted story books to build early literacy skills in students with moderate to severe disabilities.  In today's blog, I will talk about a second one. I spend ...

  • I’m Thankful For

    Thanksgiving break is so close I can almost smell the turkey! If any of you are anything like me, you really NEED (and deserve) this break! There's a lot about working as a school-based SLP that is stressful, agitating, time-consuming, irritating...you name it! Anything from budget cuts, to paperwork, to time constraints, to crazy ...

  • Parents, Teachers, and the Gray Space in Between!

    It's that time of year again: parent conferences! Next week I'll be attending evening conferences two nights and afternoon conferences the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. With the late nights and busy days, I think this year, I'll be most thankful for the days off at Thanksgiving break! I always do my best to attend as many parent ...
