  • Making Money on the Side For a School SLP

    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 Film Screenings

    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 ...
  • 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 ...
