    Today's post is the tale of a speech success story, as well as an observation and a look to the future!

  • The Latest and Greatest Assessments for Children Ages 3-5

    This fall at the preschool where I practice, we have had an unusually high number of children in need of full evaluations all for various reasons. For some, they were simply due for their re-evaluations which happen every 2 years at this age in our district. For others, we had decided as a team that several children were in need of a ...
