  • Making Money on the Side For a School SLP

    When you were going into the field of Speech-Language Pathology, did you ever look at those ''average salaries'' graphs? Did you think ''Score! I'm going into a field that makes tons of money!''

  • Social Security Benefits

  • Stuttering in Young Children

    From time to time I will have parents, teachers and even friends and family members ask about a young child they know who ''stutters.'' When I ask them to describe what the child is doing and saying when they stutter, most of the time they explain characteristics of normal developmental dysfluencies that are often temporary and mild. Today's post ...

  • Free Family Summer Speech Activities

    Now that school is out (or almost out!), it's important to find ways to help your child practice his speech skills. Speech sessions often reduce during these hot months and some children may not even qualify for summer services. Don't let your little one waste hours of their precious summer sitting in front of the television or air conditioned ...

  • Keeping Kids Safe Over the Summer: Social Media & Smart Phones!

    I have been thinking a lot about social media use in typically developing adolescents and adolescents with language impairments and disorders such as ADHD and autism.

  • Sensory Friendly Film Screenings

    Sensory Friendly Films emerged in 2007, when a Maryland parent took her young daughter to a matinee. The parent picked an early showing because she assumed there would be fewer people. When her seven year-old daughter saw her favorite actor she began to flap her hands, dance, and jump up and down. Unfortunately other audience members complained ...
  • Evaluating Patients with Aphasia: Finding the Right Device

    Probably the most important and time consuming aspect of completing any AAC evaluation is writing the report to request a communication device. Unlike other assessments, we do not really have an assessment with standardized scores because those who require a device are not a homogeneous group. Even within a specific diagnosis there are lots of ...
