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

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.

No…Not Pennsylvania…Phonological Awareness!
Also known as: Where do I start with this kid so he can learn to read?
No matter how much we try to avoid it, the start of the school year is either here or just around the corner. Now, be honest, no matter how much you love your job there is a bit of melancholy that school is beginning, winter is coming (I know that part causes me despair!) and it’s about time to get to work.
Today I’m going to review a handy app that is wonderful for SLPs, Title Teachers, and SPED teachers alike. Intrigued yet?
