Thanksgiving break is so close I can almost
smell the turkey! If any of you are anything like me, you really NEED (and
deserve) this break! There's a lot about working as a school-based SLP that is
stressful, agitating, time-consuming, irritating...you name it! Anything from
budget cuts, to paperwork, to time constraints, to crazy ...
I have a confession to make ... diagnostic assessment is one
of my most favorite aspects of my job!
So, needless to say, I am really enjoying this ongoing discussion
regarding assessments in early intervention! I love the entire process of
assessing children, observing and analyzing their behavior during the testing
and then of ...
Thank you to everyone who wrote in last week and shared
their experiences, preferences and reactions to the various testing materials
available to us as SLPs. I really enjoy hearing everyone's perspective and
feedback! I wanted to continue the discussion this week by asking a few more
questions and offering additional ...
I typically don't
use my blog to ''advertise'' a particular therapy approach or a speaker. I am
completely in favor of the ''eclectic'' approach to speech-language therapy. I
take bits and pieces from a variety of therapy
interventions/approaches/strategies and use what works best with my individual
students. However, I'm always open to new ...
Every 6 months or so, I like to recap and review popular
posts and the topics that seem to be most important to our readers. In
addition, I carefully comb through recent reader comments to make sure that
questions are being addressed and people are able to get the answers they are
seeking. Today's post will do just that, so please join me in ...
How is your
school year going so far?
The past 2
years have been very challenging for me with regards to organization. Early in
2010, I switched jobs after returning from maternity leave. When I moved into
my current position in February, not only was it the middle of the school year,
but the caseload was hefty. I inherited a group of about ...
In my last
post, I introduced Christopher Heistand, an SLP who owns a clinic in my
town. We talked about the pros and cons of clinic vs. schools. Here is part 2!
AS: Why did you decide to go out on your own to work privately?
CH: I was fortunate enough to work
in a school's birth-3 [years-old] program as the primary speech ...
has been a busy (and a bit unusual) start to the school year! If the weather
around here lately is any indication of what the winter and the rest of the
school year is going to be like, we're in trouble! Since I've gone back to
school , we've experienced a minor
earthquake, were blown around and rained upon by the outer ...
In my last post, I talked about how I did a little bit of
work in private practice and what I see as the advantages to keeping my day job
in the schools! I wanted to share the expertise of Christopher Heistand, the
SLP who started the clinic where I work over the summer. There are now three
SLPs and three OTs who work together at this clinic. ...
Despite events like Hurricane Irene pummeling the East Coast,
I really love the end of August - this time of the year has always been one of
my favorites. The weather in the northeast part of the country begins to change,
becoming more unpredictable. The sky turns temperamental and a cool breeze will
begin to cut through the summer heat. At ...
