  • Autism & SPDs: Learning From an OT

    For this blog, I consulted an Occupational Therapist (OT) with 21 years of experience in the field. I consulted Mrs. Vargas for her professional expertise on working with children that have Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs), given her extensive experience. I strongly feel that SLPs working with children that have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder ...

  • Dual Language Learning for Children with Hearing Loss

    By Michael Douglas, MA, CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert.

  • Playing The Waiting Game for a Device

    Working with those who use Speech Generating Devices is very rewarding. You get to see the excitement and impact of communication. Yesterday, I saw Karma for the first time in two weeks, because she had been sick. We currently are playing the waiting game with her insurance company, so when she is not in therapy, she does not have a communication ...

  • iPad Accessories for Young Children

    Last week I attended a review meeting for a little girl I work with weekly. After the meeting, her mom shared that she had purchased the ''Laugh & Learn Apptivity Creation Center'' by Fisher Price for her daughter to help her to use the iPad safely and asked that I incorporate it into my next session. Today when I saw her, I did just that and ...

  • Easy Resources to Share with Parents

    My last two posts addressed the challenge of implementing items that families have in their home to support therapy and IFSP goals and strategies. In my posts I specifically addressed populations that may not have access to many books and toys for their children.  As a therapist working with very young children, it can be difficult when ...

    Using a communication device out in the community can be a very exciting and motivating activity. As many students, especially older students are being transitioned into vocational training environments, it is vital for them to be comfortable communicating effectively. Communicating in the community is also a way to show new users how effective ...

  • Using Items in the Home, Continued

    Last week I wrote a post about the task of only using items found in the various homes where you are doing therapy. This is the expectation we work under in the county where I practice speech therapy. When you work in impoverished areas, this can definitely be a challenge. Many children have very little access to toys and various resources. ...

  • Earlier Years of ASD

    I thought it would be interesting to explore the history of autism. What is today known as Autistic Spectrum Disorder has evolved through time and drawn so much attention because of the rising prevalence, especially across the United States. Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler first used the term ''autism'' in 1908. He used it to describe a ...
