  • Your Child’s Biggest Fan

    Somewhere along the line you have heard the word ''autism.'' Tomorrow is the day someone will either confirm your deepest fears or at the very least tell you this might be going on with your child. I want you to remember this — no diagnosis or label will ever change the love you have for your child. It should never shatter the dreams ...

  • 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 ...

  • What's in a Name?

    It’s always exciting when someone gets a new communication device. It’s even more exciting when they have been waiting (because the old one broke). Yesterday, Corey brought me his brand new device to set up. He looked at the student that is working with me and said, “I’ve named this one ‘Sky.’” Corey’s last communication device was named ...

  • Is It Time to Donate Some Therapy Materials?

    Professional organizers and wardrobe consultants tell us that we only wear 25% of the clothes we own. Apparently, the other 75% just takes up space in our closets. Perhaps this same ratio holds true for our therapy materials. You may order a book, game, activity, resource guide, etc., based on the title, a passing recommendation from a colleague, ...

  • AAC: When to Use Low Tech

    Every time I write an AAC evaluation, one area that I have to address is whether a low tech option is appropriate for the communication device user. I will now give you a disclaimer: I have a bias towards the high tech Speech Generating Devices (SGDs); however, low tech options should always be considered. When should low tech items be ...

  • Emotional Intensity in Adolescence: Teaching Nuance

    Semantic gradient is the fancy term for ranking concepts along degrees of intensity -- making nuanced measurements of meaning. We use gradients in everyday casual speech. When someone asks you how you're doing, you might use gradations of neutrality, e.g., ''so-so,'' ''okay,'' ''not bad,'' ''fine,'' ''alright,'' or ''pretty good.'' Reading ...

  • YouTube and AAC

    Yesterday I was working with Bri and Caroline (who you may remember from some of my previous blogs). We were discussing options for creating alternate pages for Bri's communication device.  Bri is starting college in January and we have to meet the challenge of helping Bri write for her English class. As we were discussing what those pages ...
