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:
With only a month left to go in this school year, I thought I better get back to a blog I wrote way back at the beginning of the school year. I had talked about four new approaches/therapy models/interventions that I'd be using this year — so far I've only blogged about two of them (Behavior Management Through Adventure and using the ...
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 ...
When do you elicit a
language sample? Certainly when you first see a child you would want to take a
language sample. However, if the child is not comfortable on the initial
assessment, there is nothing written in stone that says that it has to be
completed the first time around. That in itself should tell you something.

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 ...

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
Dear Kathie: ''My question concerns
Julie, who is a middle school student with ASD. She is bright, verbal, possibly
Asperger's, and is included in the regular classroom for most academics. The
problem is that she refuses to do any written classroom assignments when the
other students are doing theirs. She says ''No,'' lays her head on her ...
Dear Kathie: ''Larry speaks so loudly.
I can hear him coming from way down the hall in school. No one wants to sit by
him in the lunchroom and his teacher is pulling her hair out. I've talked to
Larry's mother and it's the same at home, in the library and at McDonald's. Any
suggestions? And is this really in the realm of speech therapy for a ...
