  • Book It, Part 25: You Did It!

    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 ...

  • Communication Boards in the Classroom: A Follow-Up

    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: ''My daughter used ...

  • Book It, Part 19: Start the Year off with a Positive Attitude

    This time of year, especially in the Northeast, it can seem like everyone is struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder, including our students. It's cold, it's dark, and the smallest thing can set us off! As SLPs, we can be good counselors to our students and encourage positive self-talk for all sorts of occasions.  Self-talk ...

  • My Memory Week

    I hope everyone has been enjoying a festive holiday season, and because I know we are all so busy with celebrations, family and friends as well as work, I am offering a very brief blog post this week. At recent holiday gatherings, I was asked about my work. Not surprisingly, more than one person shared the story of a loved one who now ...

  • Alex’s Favorite Things 2011

    Last year I wrote a post, a la Oprah, about my favorite (speech therapy) things! Since it is that time of year again, I am going to discuss one favorite, recycled item! In the clinic I do some work for over the summer, there is an amazing long, transparent tube. I cannot tell you how much I have coveted this tube and wanted to take it ...

  • Classroom Recipe for Hanukkah!

    At the preschool where I work, we teach about the three holidays of Hanukkah, Kwanza and Christmas during the month of December. As you may or may not know, each holiday has various foods that are an important part of the core celebration, just as turkey is a key part of any traditional Thanksgiving meal. Last December I shared two ...

  • Working with Patients with Dysphagia During the Holiday Season

    As Thanksgiving and Christmas approach, I realize that many families and caregivers, as well as staff, struggle to include the elderly patient with swallowing or cognitive-communication impairments in the holiday celebrations. If Mom or Dad have swallowing or memory deficits, it definitely impacts the celebration. It's awkward to talk ...

  • Getting Ready for Turkey Day!

    Today I have two fun activities that can be easily incorporated into your Thanksgiving curriculum sessions! OUR THANKSGIVING TABLE First is a language-based lesson that talks all about ''What We Eat On Thanksgiving Day!'' Using boardmaker pictures, I put together a sentence strip that reads, ''I EAT ____ ON THANKSGIVING DAY,'' and ...

  • Recipe: Tasty Thanksgiving Cut-Outs!

    Before writing today's recipe post, I decided to take a quick glance back at my November blog entries from the past three years. In doing so I realized that I have not written many recipes for turkey time! This year at our preschool, we are preparing a pint-sized turkey day feast right before our Thanksgiving holiday break. We have ...
