When we met, she walked me through several of the applications that were previously downloaded onto the device. I quickly fell in love with a select few. I also learned ...

Check this out...   Yup, it's a free and completely blank bulletin board. There is a spot in our staff room where people put items they no ...

  • One Way Out of an Intense Picky Eater “Phase”

    I have heard parents say this many times when we discuss the eating habits of their ''picky eater:'' ''Hes/she used to eat (preferred food), but not anymore! Now I can barely get them to eat or try anything new. He/she eats the same things over and over.'' Our family has been dealing with this at home with our two-year-old picky eater. ...

  • When I was a Student Teacher...

    With the winter holiday break coming to an end, I'm mentally preparing myself for my newest venture as a school-based SLP -- the role of a cooperating teacher! As I had mentioned in a previous blog, from 1/3/12 through 3/9/12, I'll have a graduate student extern.  As I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...

  • Give Yourself a High Five in 2012!

    Now we all have our New Year resolutions. Some people want to lose weight, others hope to get better organized and many desire to spend more time with their families and friends. Everyone has areas of their lives that could use some restoring and most have the instinctual need to simply become more balanced. For the past two years, I ...

  • Book It, Part 19: Start the Year off with a Positive Attitude

    This time of year, especially in the Northeast, it can seem like everyone is struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder, including our students. It's cold, it's dark, and the smallest thing can set us off! As SLPs, we can be good counselors to our students and encourage positive self-talk for all sorts of occasions.  Self-talk ...

  • 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 ...

  • Behavior Management Through Adventure

    Back at the start of the school year, I had mentioned four new therapy approaches I was trying this year.  About a month ago I talked about one of them -- my use of adapted story books to build early literacy skills in students with moderate to severe disabilities.  In today's blog, I will talk about a second one. I spend ...
