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 ...
Every kid can benefit from the
kind of positive reinforcement offered by the phrase, ''You did it!'' especially
if it is offered in an exuberant voice. I say this because lately with a number
of my younger and developmentally younger students I have been using the
interactive book app Pat the Bunny, and the positive reinforcement ...
Last week I wrote a post about using communication boards
in a preschool classroom. This week I wanted to write a brief but hopefully
thorough follow-up post about the effective use of such a tool in the classroom
setting, and to examine its obvious limitations.
One parent responded to last week's blog with the following:

This week I would like to share some of my personal and
professional reflections on using the iPad. I have been incorporating the
device into my therapy sessions for just one short month. However, over these

When we met, she walked me through several of the
applications that were previously downloaded onto the device. I quickly fell in
love with a select few. I also learned ...

new and innovative therapy tool and most importantly seeing improvements with

Over the last two weeks we have been discussing the specific use of iPads
with preschoolers and many of you have written in with wonderful ideas,
suggestions and your own personal preferences for various apps
for children ages 3-5. Thank you!
week's post, I shared the entire process that we follow in our county when obtaining
Today I would like to continue my post discussion from last
week. So far, only one SLP has responded to my inquiry about using an iPad
with children ages 3-5 years old. Now, I do realize that we are less than a
week away from both Christmas and Hanukkah, so maybe therapists are much busier
than usual! However, I am also wondering if ...
I don't use lite (free apps) for use in speech therapy. I find the in-app
purchases and advertisements to be highly distracting and
take away from learning. However, there are always exceptions and the Toca Hair
