  • Not all Verbal Abilities are Created Equal

    Have you ever worked with someone who is verbal but is unable to initiate without prompts? Does he or she have difficulties with creating messages verbally that are coherent? Is grammar impaired to the point that it interferes with timely, functional communication? Then you may want to see if using a communication device is an option. The Center ...

  • Switch Access

    Previously I wrote a guest blog: Physical Disabilities and AAC Assessment. In that blog, I described some of the possible options for those who are unable to use direct access. Let's take a closer look at switch access. There are many types of switches that can be used with almost any consistent movement. Button switches, grasp switches, ...

  • Continuum of Cultural Competence

    In reading the article, ''Interdisciplinary Assessment of Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder,'' the section on cultural competence drew my attention. Prelon, Beatson, Bitner, Broder & Ducker (2003) describe cultural competence as a continuum. Prelong et al. describe the bottom of the continuum as destructiveness. In this phase, the ...

  • Exploring Tuberous Sclerosis

    In September 2013 I wrote several posts addressing a medical condition known as Tuberous Sclerosis. I am currently treating a child diagnosed with this complex genetic disorder and have been working hard to find the best ways to address the child's communication needs.

  • Empowering with Information

    Providing families of children with autism information can be very helpful. The information can especially benefit those families that are encountering autism for the very first time or families with limited access to information. However, the delivery and amount of information provided can also be a sensitive issue. The information that you ...

  • Keeping It Simple

    In today's blog about using games in school-based speech therapy, I want to talk about some quick, easy and fun games that work with students working on any targeted speech-language skills. The games I've discussed so far have all been ones that are the therapy activity for the day. However, sometimes you just want a down and dirty reinforcer ...

  • Word Searches

    Word searches are a versatile activity for patients of various levels and abilities. I use them almost daily for expressive and receptive language skills, attention, errors awareness, reasoning, following directions, and visual scanning/ tracking. Many residents recognize and understand how to complete word searches with little direction needed; ...

  • A Fun App for an APPY New Year! Where’s My Water?

    After a busy couple of weeks readjusting to the school routine and working on winter and penguins with my students, I've been trying some new apps on my iPad.

  • Fill-in-the Blank

    Sometimes we just need something fun to do in therapy! I recently brought in a book of Mad Libs (this is not the only product that offers the fill-in-the blank template word game; try Mad:)Takes or Word Libs, both online versions of the game), and I am using the simple game most of us remember from our childhood for a variety of therapy ...

  • A Boy and His iPad—Part One

    I have loved reading about SLPs' experiences with the iPad over the last year, and am enjoying the ADVANCE AAC and App review blogs. I am still a newbie when it comes to the iPad, and am looking forward to an iPad workshop and having one to use at school in the fall. Over the last two weeks I have had the opportunity to meet 2 very different ...
