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 ...
When do you elicit a
language sample? Certainly when you first see a child you would want to take a
language sample. However, if the child is not comfortable on the initial

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 ...
In last week's blog post, ''The iPad Becomes a wePad for Autism,''
I encouraged you to develop a relationship between the iPad, the child and another

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

this tube and wanted to take it ...

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 ...
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 ...
This is ''The Star Wars Connection to ASD: Episode II,'' a continuation of last week's blog using quotes from Star Wars fame and connecting them to ASD. I see these quotes through the eyes of an SLP who has worked with hundreds of children and adults with ASD. Also, through the heart of a parent who has journeyed down the road of ASD. I ...
