If you haven’t discovered Yapp Guru yet, prepare for an “adventure.” This fairly new site is going to be one of your favorite places to go for all things SLP app related. One of the absolute most cool things about it, is it is owned and run by SLPs who are in the field and on the front lines, just like you and me. This is a fantastic site! Don’t believe me? Keep reading! Continue reading
It’s that time again! After a brief hiatus due to family “stuff” I am back to doing Research Tuesday. With any luck I will be able to keep up the routine…I know I’m happier when I actually get things done on here…and it’s been WAY too long since I had a post!
Today’s research Tuesday discusses the need (or lack of) for providing a “label” for unexplained language issues in children. To be fair, I need to warn you though…this is not “research” in that there’s controls, things that are done, and data to graph…It is research in that it’s compiling a lot of information, asking some tough questions, and posing challenges. The author is a much respected SLP who is available on many social media platforms and I truly hope I don’t upset her with this discussion. I found the article extremely helpful…and the discussion articles following this one were insightful. So..without further adieu Research Tuesday!
Periodically there comes a really great idea that needs some backing. New ventures, new ideas, and new materials are exciting to see and be a part of. While I am not personally vested, I’m not a partner, I’m not making money…I still feel this is a great endeavor. It’s one that I really wish I’d had around when my daughter was little…and it’s one that I’m going to take advantage of for my therapy/clinic. Continue reading
There’s a fine art to biting your tongue and walking away and diplomacy is a worthy skill to acquire and hone. Recognizing that we all have differences, is another skill that is fabulous to have. However, sometimes, it’s necessary to find a way to correct a wrong, particularly when it’s a common wrong. (Are you confused yet? Bear with me…please?)
This post has been a while in coming…and I’m fairly sure it will exasperate some and anger others. I sincerely hope that most of you will find it enlightening rather than annoying. I have bit my tongue and walked away from the computer screen a lot lately…now I’m attempting to correct a wrong. Continue reading
With school just around the corner for some of us, I find myself thinking about this subject a lot. We seem to always cycle back to litigious parents or capitulating administration or a combination of both.
When this happens, I find myself wondering…will I ever know everything? I was recently going through my archive of posts and this one really resonated…again. I think it’s timely.
Have you ever considered legalities of your profession? If you haven’t responded before, I’d love to hear your thoughts now.
Until then…Adventure on!

It has come to my attention that the more I know – the more I need to know. While that may sound trite to many, it’s absolutely true. I find myself wishing there was a class (or three) that I could take to learn more about Special Education law and Education law in general. I mean, seriously, have you ever wondered whether the information you’re working from is correct? It seems to come up a lot for me. For instance, I recently learned

A fabulous post by a person in the know. The shortage of SLPs is an issue for everyone…and soon, the shortage of persons available to teach SLPs will be critical.
I haven’t done an app review in a while and it’s time. Now one of my all-time-favorite apps has been recently updated, and I think it’s time to share the love.
Articulate it! is easily the first app that I think of when I consider articulation drill (and that’s saying something since I authored the phono learning center app for phono therapy!).
Here is WHY I love it… Continue reading
