The year is drawing to a close, and my ideas for therapy are
dwindling. The other day I pulled out a favorite software program that hadn't
seen the light of day for a long time. I'm not sure why I haven't used it
lately; it is the perfect therapy activity for the under 6 set:
Last time, I blogged about being a member of a state speech-language-hearing association. In that blog I mentioned my state association's upcoming annual convention. Today's post is about some of my experiences at the PSHA Convention. I'll write about the other presentations I attended in my next post.
My time at the convention was split among ...
Many children we work with do not see a link between their behavior and immediate positive consequences they can receive, let alone the connection between their behaviors and their long-term impressions on others. As SLPs, these students can be challenging in many ways, not only because it can be difficult for us to get them to participate in ...
When do you elicit a
language sample? Certainly when you first see a child you would want to take a

Every kid can benefit from the
kind of positive reinforcement offered by the phrase, ''You did it!'' especially

Thank you! A special thank you to all of the SLPs who emailed pictures of their beloved pets to include in collages that we can all use to elicit language samples. It was so much fun to see the variety of who lives with you. I was amazed to find who shares your affection, and I know now to whom you talk to each night after work! These are ...
A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing Amazon, and a
''Recommended for You'' item popped up. It was the book, ''The Pirate Who Couldn't Say 'Arrr'''!
I am trying to be a school-SLP-on-a-budget, but I couldn't
resist. I impulsively clicked on the ''1-Click'' ordering button, and the book
arrived two days later.
The book is by Angie ...
Blog Comment: ''Please correct your meter from 'to loud' to 'too
loud.''' - D.
To D: So sorry about the error. That tells me you are a close reader, and I appreciate the
correction. I have made the change to the Loud Meter, as you can see below. Please feel free to print it off and use it
with your clients.
Thanks so much for following my ...
I have spent a fair amount of
time here complaining about winter, so it's a good time to let you know that I
LOVE St. Patrick's Day, mostly because to me it is the beginning of spring. Also,
I am Darn Well Irish (the MacSweeneys, one of them being my grandfather, hail
from County Cork, Ireland). This is sort of a weird holiday to target ...
Dear Kathie: ''Chad is 5 years
old and ‘very' autistic and non-verbal. He covers his ears with his hands when
there is a loud noise, such as a fire alarm, or even when he anticipates a loud
noise, like a balloon that he thinks may pop. How can I help him, his classroom
teacher, and his parents? - Payton, speech-language pathologist
