  • White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress

    Millions of people on social media and later mainstream media recently viewed a photo of a particular dress that stirred a national debate. Due to the background lighting and photographic exposure, people saw the two colors of the dress differently. For all of us who debated the colors of that dress (blue/black or white/gold), we had a ...

  • When Therapy Goals Do Not Sync

    Each person that we provide therapy for has his or her challenges. Sometimes the challenge is that his or her goals do not sync with the goals we think are appropriate. Sometimes the family dynamic has too many external stressors which either reduces attendance or participation of stakeholders in therapy more than likely reducing the efficacy ...

  • Speech at the Beach! Summer Themes Continued

    This week during our summer theme series we are visiting the BEACH! The sounds, sights and smells of the ocean and sand are a perfect way to bring summertime to your sessions and help prepare your students for possible vacations near the water. Learning about and practicing with beachy vocabulary words and topics is not only fun, it is very ...

  • "Chicken Soup" by SLPs: Are You In?

    My parents fondly remember that from the time I could smash the space bar on their computer keyboard to smithereens, I wanted to be a writer. Now with the assistance of 37 local and nationwide SLPs and counting, my dream to publish feels more tangible than ever. My newest premise for a book is a Chicken Soup-style anthology of stories by SLPs for ...

  • Eating the Alphabet!

    This past week I took my daughter to our local library in search of books appropriate for summertime and gardening. She attends a childcare program two days a week and they have been talking all about planting and eating vegetables over the last few days. I thought this would be a fun way to support what they are learning in the classroom, as well ...

  • Book It, Part 26: The Way to A...Better Day

    Many children we work with do not see a link between their behavior and immediate positive consequences they can receive, let alone the connection between their behaviors and their long-term impressions on others. As SLPs, these students can be challenging in many ways, not only because it can be difficult for us to get them to participate in ...

  • "Spooky House of Horror"

    In your schools, do you ''do'' holidays? My district probably falls somewhere in between going all out and doing nothing at all. Teachers can teach all winter holidays, or all spring or fall holidays, without emphasizing one more than another. I usually follow the teachers' leads, but I do have a very special book I share with my students at ...

  • How to Make an Early Intervention Referral

    A good friend of mine called recently for some advice. She and her family had dinner with some friends over the weekend. Both of them have kiddos the same age. During their dinner play date, her friend confided that she had some ''concerns'' about her little girl. Nearing the two and a half year mark, she has yet to be able to feed herself and ...

  • In the Spirit of Giving...Toys!

    On Tuesday, I submitted a post discussing the dangerous presence of toxic chemicals in toys. As I had stated in that post, parents will often ask for suggestions regarding toys that would be appropriate and helpful for their child with a diagnosed speech and/or feeding delay/disorder. Especially at this time of the year with the holidays and ...

  • Halloween Therapy: Tricks n' Treats

    With Halloween just a week away, it's a great time to include pumpkins, ghosts, spiders and all the scary little characters we associate with this spooky time! Kids love the holidays and I see a spark in their eye whenever I include seasonal themes in my sessions. In addition, as I stated in my last post, FALL FUN, seasonal and holiday based ...
