  • 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 ...

  • A Book for the /r/ Sound!

    A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing Amazon, and a ''Recommended for You'' item popped up. It was the book, ''The Pirate Who Couldn't Say 'Arrr'''! I am trying to be a school-SLP-on-a-budget, but I couldn't resist. I impulsively clicked on the ''1-Click'' ordering button, and the book arrived two days later. The book is by Angie ...

  • "Angry Birds" in Speech Therapy!

    I was hoping to share some photos of bulletin boards in response to my last blog, ''Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!'' in today's post, but I didn't get any pictures. I did, however, get some great ideas in the comments section! If you are interested, check it out! There are some wonderful ideas from some creative people. However, I DO want to ...

  • Alex’s Favorite Things 2011

    Last year I wrote a post, a la Oprah, about my favorite (speech therapy) things! Since it is that time of year again, I am going to discuss one favorite, recycled item! In the clinic I do some work for over the summer, there is an amazing long, transparent tube. I cannot tell you how much I have coveted this tube and wanted to take it ...

  • This Conference Was a Winner!

    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 ...

  • An Awesome App!

    This summer I've been doing a little work for a speech clinic in my town. It's been a lot of fun, and one of the things I love most is their iPad®! I wrote about application of the iPad in speech therapy a few months ago, but I didn't even scratch the surface. I know that other bloggers and readers are much more knowledgeable about this topic ...

  • Book It, Part 4: Digital Resources to Support Non-Digital Picture Books

    If you know my area of focus at all, you know it's hard for me to stay away from tooting the technology trumpet for too long. For the past several posts, I have been writing about specific picture books that can provide a great context for speech and language lessons. It's helpful to know about some online resources that support that infusion of ...

  • That Pesky /r/ Sound!

    In my last posting, I talked about one of my favorite objectives, /s/ blends. Here's a goal that we school SLPs get a lot, and I'm sure you all know what it is: that pesky /r/ sound! While some kids take to speech therapy for the /r/ like a duck to water, others definitely have more trouble. I employ different strategies! Some of the oral motor ...

  • Favorite Goal: /s/ blends!

    Do you have a favorite goal to work on? I have to confess that I really enjoy working on ''s'' clusters  with my younger students. For those kids who have multiple phonological errors, there are many ways to justify working on ''s'' clusters. Research shows that when clusters are targeted, other sounds emerge. In the April 5th edition of the ...

  • Service Delivery Models: Supporting Students Who Aren't "Ours"

    In all my discussions of service delivery models, whether direct or indirect ones, all the students I've talked about supporting were ones who were already identified/had IEPs in place, which include either direct and/or indirect services from a speech-language pathologist. However, in looking at the overall population of an elementary ...
