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!

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
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.
Just Open More SLP Programs, OK?.
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
It is the second Tuesday of the month, which means it’s time for Research Tuesday. As always the interpretation of the research is mine and side comments are placed in [brackets].
Today’s post is brought to you by the
letter I… errr…. the Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools journal. Continue reading
