Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: Can fathers be blamed too?

I almost didn’t have a Research Tuesday post. I could come up with some pithy excuses, but they’d just be excuses…suffice it to say, there was nothing that really spoke to me that I’d read. In fact, I wondered if I’d been burnt out from reading all these articles (not really!). Then I was speaking with a teacher in my school and remembered I had stored away an article to use for my own research and hadn’t yet. It was relevant, and interesting, and … uhm…maybe a bit controversial. So…I had to use it…right? I had to! First, though, I have to give a shout out to Tatyana Elleseff at Smart Speech Therapy for providing the link to me (I’ll bet she never expected me to use it this way!). It’s a bit different…and has an odd flow to it, but it’s here. So…without further ado…I bring you Research Tuesday!

Cracking the books…but in a good way!

Have you ever had one of those epiphanies where you realize you didn’t do something you thought you did? Yeah… you know… one of THOSE moments.

I am sad to say, I have…and in fact, I had one just this morning. I honestly thought I had created a blog post about a very cool product, and realized I hadn’t. *sigh* But, I’m going to rectify that situation right now…and trust me! You WANT to keep reading. These apps are unlike any other you’ve seen…and you have the opportunity to help them get even better (meaning expanding product not bettering product, because frankly it’s pretty darn good…but don’t take my word for it…look for yourself)!

It’s that time of the month again…wait! Not THAT!

It’s Research Tuesday!

research tuesdayThat means it’s time for the SLP Bloggers to dust off their journal sleuthing skills and review an article. I seem to always have trouble deciding on which article I want to write about. I either have several and can’t seem to choose, or none of them inspire me. Thankfully, after several days of hemming and hawing…err…preocastrination looking around I decided on the following article. So…without further delay… Continue reading

Bad Budgets and a Call for Action

Imagine my surprise when I was happily perusing twitter…and I saw a tweet in all caps.

Now, for those of you not in the know…that’s just rude. I mean it’s RUDE! (see…it gets your attention). When the person who tweeted it is near and dear to me and familiar with twitter etiquette or “twitiquette” as I like to call it, I knew it wasn’t rude…it was important.

Common Core Controversy

It’s no secret that many of the states are going to Common Core State Standards. It’s also no secret that many (many many) people are adamantly against them. Apparently some states adopted them and then changed their mind and backed out. Who knows, maybe many more will too and CCSS will be a thing of the past.
