This week I'd like to continue with specific therapy material
suggestions for new graduates and the books and manuals that have worked for
me, with a focus on cognitive-linguistic resources.
Cognitive-linguistic therapy is a very important aspect of our work
in geriatrics and long-term care (LTC). At the very least, we should be
Happy spring! This week is ''R'' week at our school, and one of the themes the children are learning about is the rainforest. Tropical Ice Cream is a fabulously delicious recipe that the occupational therapist at our school created. The dish turned out to be a fun, educational and wonderful sensory experience for even our pickiest of ...
I have spent a fair amount of
time here complaining about winter, so it's a good time to let you know that I
LOVE St. Patrick's Day, mostly because to me it is the beginning of spring. Also,
I am Darn Well Irish (the MacSweeneys, one of them being my grandfather, hail
from County Cork, Ireland). This is sort of a weird holiday to target ...
Today I want to share one of my favorite apps to use with
preschoolers who have receptive and/or expressive language delays. It's called
''Monkey Preschool Lunchbox,'' and is a mere $0.99 to download onto your device.
Below I have listed the overall layout of the app in bullet
points. The concepts that the app addresses are in ...
Thank you to everyone who has been writing in over these
past few weeks regarding the iPad apps and the many ways that the iPad can be
used in speech therapy sessions. I love hearing your feedback and the various
ways you are using these apps in your sessions!
This week I would like to share my next iPad passion, namely
the full version of ...
Books continue to be my heroes in
my school position, sometimes showing up to save me from ennui when I least
expect it. I was recently doing a pull-over sort of session in the literacy
center (the kindergarten class is nearby and my room is, well, not), and spied the
colorful cover of Alphabet Rescue, by Audrey Wood and her son, Bruce. ...
During my first two weeks with the iPad, I used it solely
during my individual therapy sessions. After having much success and feeling
more confident about how to use the iPad appropriately, I decided to expand my
horizons and try out my new passion in a group therapy session!
In planning out the session, several questions came to ...
I was hoping to share some photos of bulletin boards in response to my last blog, ''Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!'' in today's post, but I didn't get any pictures. I did, however, get some great ideas in the comments
section! If you are interested, check it out! There are
some wonderful ideas from some creative people.
However, I DO want to ...
So, after another week of using the iPad in many of my
speech therapy sessions and after hours of my own exploration, I have a list of
several FREE apps that you many find
helpful for preschool-age children with speech and language delays.
These apps were not necessarily created for children with
special needs. However, there are ...
This past week, as promised, the Assistive Technology
representative from our county paid me a welcomed visit, bringing with her the
much anticipated iPad! Very exciting!
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 ...
