SLP or Salesperson? 4 Ways to “Sell Yourself” and Make Your Therapy More Effective

If someone asked you what you doing for a living, you’d probably say “speech pathologist”, “speech-language pathologist”, “speech therapist”, or something of the like. But did you know you are also a salesperson? As Dan Pink put it in his book, To Sell is Human, many of us are in sales, and we don’t even know it. As therapists, we fall in to this group. Let me show you what I mean. Have you ever thought to yourself: “Why won’t my coworkers just listen to what I have to say/do what I ask?” “What can I do to get this student to do their homework/use their strategies/come to speech on time (et cetera)?” “This would be so much easier if I could just convince this teacher/teaching assistant/paren

"That's SO Annoying!" Part 1: Helping Students Explore and Recognize the Feeling of Be

Traffic. People talking on cell phones at the gym. Dogs getting sick indoors. That spinning ball of doom on my computer right when a presentation is due. We often find ourselves in situations when we feel annoyed - sometimes with other people and other times with the experiences in which we find ourselves. Oh, and let's not forget that sometimes our actions annoy others. Such as when I promise students I will have refreshed the gum drawer by next week and then forget to do so. Or when I leave too late to pick up my son at the ferry and he has to wait (in the rain). Or when I turn down the heat on the rest of the family just because I'm having hot flashes. Annoyance.

Meltdowns 411: Prevention, Reaction, and Recovery

There is nothing amusing about “the meltdown”. It is reflective of a complete loss of control of the person with an autism spectrum disorder. It is often loud, risky at times, frustrating, and exhausting for all involved. One might say that the loss of control overtakes the child. They need their teacher or parent to recognize this and help them to regain control as they are unable to do so on their own. It is critical to learn to recognize when the meltdown is imminent in hopes of preventing this complete emotional episode. In today's blog post, guest contributor Lisa Rogers, MA of Asperger's 101 shares advice for what to do before, during, and after a meltdown. Following this post, you wil

IEPs Unlocked! 7 Steps For Data Driven Language Therapy & Goal Creation

As I sat at yet another “procedures and paperwork” meeting (aka the training that administrators force you to attend on an all too often basis), I sighed. I am painfully aware that IEPs need to be written to be measurable and precise, but I struggle conceptually and sometimes ethically with this concept. Unlike learning 26 letters in the alphabet or being able to add numbers to ten, language learning is rich, deep, and not especially linear. In addition, language is learned, practiced, and reinforced not just in structured academic settings, but throughout one’s life. I know that a child’s vocabulary is low compared to his same-age peers, but how do I write a measurable goal to address that?
