Trying to stay in my lane and, as a mandated by law, denouncing the nasty implications that traumatic stress can have on brain development as well as #speechandlanguage development, especially at an early age.
ASHA Convention 2010 - I went to a talk about the impact of child maltreatment on speech and language development. Eye opening, thought provoking presentation, since I work with immigrants and children from dysfunctional environments. I was able to get my notes and create this.

As an SLP, health care provider, and as a mom, I need to speak up to the best of my ability to #keepfamiliestogether and make sure that these kids grow in a safe and protected environment.
It's not about legality, it's about humanity and the incredible harm that is being done to children who are innocent. This is even indirectly affecting and triggering kids that have gone through trials with ICE. I am trying to do something about it.
Today I hugged my kids at school a little tighter.

Separating children from their families leaves them more vulnerable to exploitation and abuse.
#UnitedNations Secretary-General António Guterres believes that refugees and migrants should always be treated with respect and dignity, and in accordance with existing international law. Children must not be traumatized by being separated from their parents. Family unity must be preserved.

Regardless of immigration status, children are children first.

What is happening at the border right now constitutes torture, according to Amnesty International. Separating parents from their children is inhumane and must be stopped.

I could work #ESY hours all year! Going to #target in the middle of the day! Working out before it gets super busy. Plenty of time for laundry and the beach! #speechies making the best of summer work’n. #ashaigers #SLPeeps #csha

Rory’s story cubes are one of my favorite toys. Today we used them for categorizing. We found actions, emotions, things that rhyme, tools, and things that light up!

We are about to shock you here! You all know we are pretty black and white in our opinion about technology 😫👎🏻 (minus AAC and our clients with complex needs). Well here is our list on why we ❤️ love ❤️ the @apple Apple Watch. Yep! We love it and this is why:
1) We are actually less “plugged in” wearing it. We don’t bring our phones with us anymore. It has decreased our “screen time during downtime.” When your phone is available, you will use it to kill boredom. Phones are a distraction!
2) In case of emergency: calls and texts will vibrate on the watch (you have to set to silence). This means that we can simply glimpse at our wrists and know if it’s a call that must be picked up (aka the kids’ schools). You can answer the text or call later or right away via voice to text or scribble right from your wrist.
3) It enables us to discreetly check if a call or text. It vibrate, you glimpse and answer/ respond or cancel.
4) Alerts/ reminders/ calendar events: you can set these to go to your watch.
5) Timers/ reminders: ask anyone who has heard us speak.... we NEVER end on time. We can set an alarm/ or timer on the watch to ring or vibrate on a countdown timer or alarm. We LOVE this for therapy sessions because we can set an alert 10 minute before the sessions ends to write our notes or remind us it’s almost time to end.
6) DATA! Yes, there is a clicker app available to collect data.
We are sure there are so many more ways to use this watch. Mileage tracking, directions/ maps, scheduling, health/ well being, etc.
The Apple Watch isn’t for everyone and it takes some “figuring out” to set it where you like it. Bottom line for us is... it gets the phone out of the picture! #finemotorbootcamp #slpeeps #earlyintervention #ashaigers #schoolslp #schoolot

What's your fave ice cream flavor? I'm a sucker for anything coffee-flavored or mint chocolate!
🍦
My kids love pretending to play ice cream shop, and these brand new ice cream articulation mats are a SUPER EASY way to incorporate pretend play into articulation practice, whether you're using plastic ice cream scoops, felt scoops, or pom poms as your ice cream!
🍨
PS- Every sound, including vocalic r and 3-element s blends, are in this set, too!

The "Therapy Bag"! I have actually never carried one but I'm thinking it's time for a change! I work at a school for students with very complex needs. I often find myself running back and forth to my office to adapt/fix materials for our students (i.e. wheelchairs, communication mounts, curricular materials, adaptations for participation, etc.). I have decided that I am using a large "fanny pack" this upcoming school year! I have always toyed with the idea of a tool belt but that would get in the way of assisting in transferring students and the up/down off the floor! A fanny pack with many pockets seems to be the missing piece! No more running back and forth for what I need, leaving things in the classroom and/or bringing one more thing into crowded rooms...It will be an extension of me and great for time management! So what are my go to items for complex students that I seem to ALWAYS need....
1. Allen wrenches (standard and metric b/c no two wheelchairs are the same).
2. screw driver (equipment adjustments)
3. hook and loop velcro standard and sticky back (quick adaptations)
4. Scotch re-stickable mounting tabs (for communication pics/objects)
5. Core Board for quick receptive/expressive communication
6. batteries (all sizes for switch accessible materials)
7. wrench (equipment adjustments)
8. Extra plastic buckles (buckles that break on wheelchairs)
9. nuts and bolts (to mount/adapt/fix equipment)
10. bungee ties (tie down or hang materials for student use)
11. flashlight (to highlight materials for students with visual differences)
12. industrial twist ties (you can adapt anything with these!
13. Nylon Webbing (strap materials to table or fix equipment). CHIME IN ON COMMENTS....I know I forgot something!!!!!!! #slpeeps #ashaigers #pediatricot #schoolot #finemotorbootcamp

Food week is still going strong in preschool groups! I had a smaller group today so I brought in a hodgepodge of activities to work on specific goals. Here’s what I used and how: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Memory Game- This one is from @melissaanddougtoys but you can easily print out pictures to use. I targeted vocabulary and plurals.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•If You Give A Mouse A Brownie book- vocabulary, wh- questions, spatial concepts, -ing, and object function
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Vegetable felt set- This is from @targetdollarspot. We targeted vocabulary, sequencing, and Wh- questions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Fruit picnic set-This was in last year’s #targetdollarspot. I used it for social play and facilitated their interactions with each other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I am still transitioning into Summer and would love any tips from SLP mommas on how you keep your house running smoothly during the summer months. Help a SLP sister out! Double tap if you have been setting aside wellness time! I have been loving going to the gym for fun classes at a normal hour! 10:30 is a great time for the gym. slpeeps #schoolslp #dabblingslp

Immediate visual feedback is sometimes necessary to motivate and increase verbal participation of little ones.

We're using @kaufmancenter cards for #Apraxia of speech.

If I don’t want others to expect me to be *perfect*, then I promise I won’t expect it from my students. I want progress. I want to see their best. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
