  • Talking with My Brother

    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 ...

  • Book It, Part 26: The Way to A...Better Day

    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 ...

  • "Unique Among the Blogs"

    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 ...

  • Therapy Materials for the New Clinician

    This week's blog continues with the theme of preparing for life beyond graduate school. I gave some advice to new clinicians who are just entering the field of long-term care (LTC) last week, and back in September I wrote about gathering every day supplies for therapy in September 2011. I also talked about some simple, inexpensive ideas ...

  • How Many SLPs are REALLY Using iPads?

    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 ...

  • The CFY Experience: A New Grad's Perspective

    This week's post is an interview with Christine Costello about her Clinical Fellowship Year (CFY) experiences. Last year I had the privilege of supervising Christine for a few months in the skilled nursing facility (SNF) setting. Although Christine decided to explore an opportunity in the public education system while still in her CFY, I know ...

  • Speech Therapy with an iPad!

    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 ...

  • Ideas Needed: Bulletin Board!

      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! 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. ...

  • Singing in the New Year

    I do 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 in nature. On a recent commute to work, I was excited to hear a story on NPR's Morning Edition: ''Singing Therapy Helps Stroke Victims Speak Again.'' I immediately thought ...
