Rather than ideas 'n info, this first-of-the-school year offering is more like "what I did during my summer break." (I remember doing those. Do teachers still ask kids to do that?) I do have some helpful ideas 'n info all lined up to share with you starting next week. But first...
My first Speech Link Podcast is tonight, August 1st
Please join us! Do you know Dr. Karen Dukek-Brannon? If you do, then you understand why she's my first guest. If not, you're in for a treat. She's got language therapy-answers and great strategies. Her topic tonight is, "Three Secrets to Expanding Sentences and Building Vocabulary."
Just go toSpeechTherapypd.com. Darla (the SLP owner) is kindly sharing a$10 off coupon for you FOR EACH OF MY NEXT FOUR PODCASTS. In addition to learning some great information, you also get .1 ASHA CEUs for each course. Each new Podcast will be aired on August 1, 2, 9, and 16 at 7:00pm (eastern time). At check-out, just enter the code:SPEECHLINK10to get your discount (your total for each one is less than $15, or you can subscribe). As you know Podcasts (in this case, Podcourses) are all audio--just pull-up and listen!
The R-Video Tutorials are Almost Done!
Whew! They will be ready on my NEW WEBSITE in September, just in time for you school therapists that have kids with those crazy-Rs. Each 2 to 3 minute video focuses on one R-exercise. Each video shows you, the child, and the parent/caregiver exactly how to do each activity. You can use them in your therapy and share them with parents to accompany home practice (maybe they'll actually do them, and do them correctly! Yeah!). I'll keep you posted.
I Think You’ll Enjoy My New Website…
Why? Because it not only looks better it is better (in my not-so-humble opinion!). It's MUCH easier to navigate and find what you are looking for. Also, I've added additional "Free Forms and Materials," informative Articles, and updated a bunch of information. You'll be able to listen to my free Podcasts (once they have been aired bySpeechTherapypd.com). But, keep in mind, you'll not get the CEUs--that's only onSpeechTherapypd.com..
LISTEN to Therapy Matters Audios!
I know your time is not only valuable, but limited. But I also know you're always on the look-out for helpful tips, ideas, and options.
Therefore, I recorded ALL OF THE THERAPY MATTERS (from last January til now) AND PUT THEM ON MY NEW WEBSITE. All you have to do is pull-up the Therapy Matters Audio page, click on the one you want and listen.
Easy. This feature is on the NEW website not the existing one. (I'm so excited about the new website--I hope you like it.)
Good wishes to you as you enjoy the rest of your summer. Have some fun, and take some time for YOU!
See ya next week,
