  • School's Over: It's a Wrap!

    I'm writing this blog on my second full day of summer break. Several bags are nearly-packed from my upcoming vacation. I realize that depending on what part of the country you are in, when you started your year,  and how many snow days you had this past winter, many of you are probably still in school. I'm not trying to make ...

  • Give a Little, Get a Little

    I know many (most? all???) school-based SLPs feel overworked and underappreciated.  We spend our days doing direct services for student (i.e., therapy, evaluations) and our schools (i.e., bus duty, recess duty) and countless of indirect activities related to our jobs (i.e., IEP meetings, emails, phone calls, consulting with teachers, ...

  • Highlights of a State Convention

    This past Thursday, Friday, and Saturday I was lucky enough to attend my state's annual convention. I was even luckier that it was held only 20 minutes away from where I live!  But the most fortunate part of the whole thing (other than getting approved for the professional leave time from work) was attending numerous excellent, relevant ...

  • Reflections on PSHA, Part 1

    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 ...

  • Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!

      In my last entry, I wrote about a free, recycled object that makes a wonderful therapy tool. Today I'm going to share and (hopefully) get, some advice about something else I got for free! Check this out...   Yup, it's a free and completely blank bulletin board. There is a spot in our staff room where people put items they no ...

  • When I was a Student Teacher...

    With the winter holiday break coming to an end, I'm mentally preparing myself for my newest venture as a school-based SLP -- the role of a cooperating teacher! As I had mentioned in a previous blog, from 1/3/12 through 3/9/12, I'll have a graduate student extern.  As I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...

  • Give Yourself a High Five in 2012!

    Now we all have our New Year resolutions. Some people want to lose weight, others hope to get better organized and many desire to spend more time with their families and friends. Everyone has areas of their lives that could use some restoring and most have the instinctual need to simply become more balanced. For the past two years, I ...

  • Behavior Management Through Adventure

    Back at the start of the school year, I had mentioned four new therapy approaches I was trying this year.  About a month ago I talked about one of them -- my use of adapted story books to build early literacy skills in students with moderate to severe disabilities.  In today's blog, I will talk about a second one. I spend ...

  • AAC for Preschoolers

    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 ...

  • Teacher? Student? Both?

    I'm always excited about new experiences and expanding my horizons at work. This school year has been no exception. At the start of this school year, I blogged about four new therapy interventions/methods I'm trying this year. So far, I've followed up on one (re: using ''Building With Stories'' to modify books for students with severe ...
