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

Christine decided to explore an opportunity in the public education system while still in her CFY, I
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 ...
In my last entry, I wrote about a free, recycled object that
makes a wonderful therapy tool. Today I'm going to share and (hopefully) get,
some advice about something else I got for free!

Yup, it's a free and completely blank bulletin board. There
is a spot in our staff room where people put items they no ...
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
Our family has been dealing with this at home with our
two-year-old picky eater. ...
not make New Year's resolutions, but I do set goals for myself, and one of them
is to perpetually look for new ways to treat patients that are fun and creative
On a recent commute to
