  • 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 ...

  • This Conference Was a Winner!

    I typically don't use my blog to ''advertise'' a particular therapy approach or a speaker. I am completely in favor of the ''eclectic'' approach to speech-language therapy. I take bits and pieces from a variety of therapy interventions/approaches/strategies and use what works best with my individual students. However, I'm always open to new ...

  • 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 ...

  • What Have YOU Learned on the Job?

    I have enjoyed reading the ADVANCE ''Advice to Generation Y'' therapist entries! I want to share the top 5 things I was NOT taught in grad school, but learned on the job! 1. Every where you go, you'll hear speech and language disorders. You're an amazing diagnostician!  Sometimes you'll be at the park or at the children's museum with ...

  • 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 ...
