    I just got back from an amazing weekend at the Sea to Sky Aphasia Camp!  The camp consisted of over 30 people with aphasia (ages 26-86) along with family, staff, and volunteers lodging amongst the mountains of beautiful Squamish, British Columbia. The weekend blended traditional camp activities such as fishing and archery with less ...

    TinyTap is an unlikely candidate for my blog, falling short on two criteria I look for in good adult therapy apps - it requires customization before it will work (a no-no for busy clinicians with caseload pressures), and it is designed for preschool kids with cutesy animations and sounds. These two flaws notwithstanding, this is a very useful app ...

  • EGG-cellent Activities!

    Yes, I know Easter is over. However, this past week was ''E'' week at our school, and the activities were too egg-citing not to share! Eggs were the curriculum focus, set by our classroom teachers, and it certainly was a creative hit. (Make sure you hard-boil the eggs prior to these activities.) > For our first activity, we dyed the eggs. ...

    Happy spring! This week is ''R'' week at our school, and one of the themes the children are learning about is the rainforest. Tropical Ice Cream is a fabulously delicious recipe that the occupational therapist at our school created.
