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 ...
In our practice we recognize differing communication and learning
abilities. As clinicians, we work to increase our clients’ access to social
opportunities and interactions. We understand that all people have a unique way
of expressing their thoughts and ideas.
Within the nature of the human condition, skills vary across domains,
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 ...
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!'' I know I did! Then, I started working for a public school system in the middle of Missouri and reality set in. It seems that SLPs rarely get paid ...
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 ...
Flash back about 25 years. To a school-based SLP, he'd be described as a child who stutters. There appears to be a genetic component to his stuttering, as his oldest sister demonstrated some mild stuttering at his age. He is the youngest of four children. It's a noisy household with lots of competition to talk and be heard. The severity of his ...
Many children we work with do not see a link between their behavior and immediate positive consequences they can receive, let alone the connection between their behaviors and their long-term impressions on others. As SLPs, these students can be challenging in many ways, not only because it can be difficult for us to get them to participate in ...
It has been several months (or longer) since I wrote a post
sharing web-related resources for therapists and parents. However, when our Early
Intervention Speech Therapy Blog was officially recognized by the
ASHAsphere, which is ''the official blog of the American Speech-Language-Hearing
Association,'' I thought it may be a good time to ...
Just as I am a member of the American Speech Language and
Hearing Association (ASHA), I am also a member of the Pennsylvania Speech-Language-Hearing Association (PSHA). PSHA has proven to be a wonderful resource
for me over the past few years.
A few weeks ago, PSHA sent out the final results
of a recent survey they conducted asking ...
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 ...
