  • A Yummy Read!

    I have always enjoyed children's literature, and enjoy using children's books in my therapy sessions. I always hope that I'm doing the books, and my students' goals, justice. Because of this, I really enjoyed the ADVANCE Webinar  Narrative Development: Beyond Story Grammar  presented by Maryellen Rooney Moreau, MEd, CCC-SLP. ...
