"Wow, I forget how big the caseloads are for school settings. How will you deal?"

 

My caseload is currently sitting at about 45 now, I lost two today. In the schools, you're doing therapy based on their educational need. I would LOVE to see my kids 3x a week. (I say this and I haven't even met the little stinkers yet!) However, that is just not feasible in a school setting, for most children. One of the things you have to analyze is will they benefit more from being in your room, or will they benefit more from being in their general education classroom? When you're pulling out these kids, they're missing part of their regular education.

Celebrating Signs of Success | Lingua Health

By Stephanie Foley

As a parent, there are no words to describe how deeply grateful you are for the talented and dedicated team of speech-language therapists that are working to enable your child to communicate and interact socially. They literally become part of your family as they help nurture and spur your child’s development.

 

My daughter was diagnosed with apraxia when she was 12 months old. It was a speech-language therapist that gently explained the value of introducing baby signs as a tool to enable my daughter to more effectively communicate while she worked on speech drills. I initially thought that signing would work against speech therapy, but instead, it greatly enhanced it. By the time my daughter was three, she had the speech skills of a 16 month old, yet she could effectively communicate anything with a sign vocabulary of over 300 words. I cannot imagine what our world would have been like without her having this tool.

 

Now 9 years old, my daughter’s articulation is age appropriate, and she is talking up a storm – engaging both children and adults in conversation. I will remember our early intervention team forever. Their patient perseverance became a life line to my family. They shared both our struggles and achievements.

 

We need to celebrate the everyday successes we have with our children. The Lingua Health SLP Clinical Success Award does just that. Enter today and share how you have helped make a difference in a child’s – in fact in an entire family’s – life.

Choosing a Mode of Communication for Children with Autism | Lingua Health

By Carrie Slaymaker, MA, CCC-SLP

When evaluating a child with autism who is struggling to communicate, a speech-language pathologist needs to consider several factors which include the function of communication, the environments where the child will be communicating, and the reasons for the child to communicate. While speaking is the most common mode of communication, there are many forms of augmentative and alternative communication that can prove to be very effective. There is strong research behind augmentative and alternative communication systems as a mode to increase interactive and social communications. In addition, research has shown that these systems help support, not preclude verbal communication and can lead to more rapid progress. In my Lingua Health YouTube video (http://youtu.be/oPq_Q1yb6Ts), I outline various considerations for a speech-language pathologist to consider when recommending and implementing an augmentative or alternative communication system for children with autism. I’ve also provided a list of resources that provide more information on this topic at
