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 ...
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,
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 ...
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 ...
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.

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 ...
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.
I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...
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.
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 ...
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 ...
