Frecuentemente cuando me conocen y no saben lo que es la #terapiadelenguaje o la #fonoaudiologia me hacen estas preguntas y por si acaso tienen la misma duda, aquí les dejo parte de mi respuesta 😊
La terapia de lenguaje esta dedicada a habilitar y rehabilitar todo el proceso de comunicación, alimentación y audición de un niño o adulto. Esto incluye dificultades a nivel comprensivo, expresivo, de pronunciación, de voz, auditivo, motor, de alimentacion y muchas más!
La #terapiadelenguaje la puede recibir cualquier persona que tenga al menos una dificultad para: comprender lo que se le dice, responder con coherencia, pronunciar correctamente, succionar, masticar, tragar, comunicarse con otras personas desconocidas, hablar de distintos temas... Adicionalmente la #terapiadelenguaje enseña a las personas con deficiencias Auditivas a hablar, mejora alteraciones en la voz (tono, intensidad, resonancia, prosodia, timbre), interviene en el proceso de lectoescritura , en la coordinación fonorespiratoria, estimula el lenguaje de los bebés que tengan retraso en la adquisición del lenguaje, mejora la tonicidad y coordinación de los músculos de la cara, cuello y boca para aquellos con dificultad para articular palabras (pronunciar), succionar, masticar y tragar... Son tantas las cosas que podemos mejorar los Terapistas de Lenguaje, que no caben aquí todas las funciones. Y esto sin mencionar todas las funciones de un Audiólogo, y además sin contar que en otros países ya han desarrollado la Fonoaudiología Forense y la Fonoaudiología Estética.
Para mí, esta es una de las mejores carreras del mundo 😎
Enjoyed this gift of another day doing therapy and shopping. My business partner, Linda, came over, and we enjoyed helping this cutie pie. Can’t wait until it is all official, and we go on to help clients in a peaceful setting. We are stomping out our challenges from the soles of our feet, so our inner soul shines brighter.

Snow by Uri Shulevitz was a favorite in therapy this week. There are so many speech, language, and literacy goals that can be incorporated into this short story.
Articulation - so many opportunities to practice /s/. Verbs - (circling, swirling, spinning, twirling, dancing, playing, floating, falling) act out each action for some multisensory learning.
Adjectives/sentence structure - each character is described “with” something. Target sentence expansion by adding on to the simple sentences to include multiple descriptors.
Narrative - work on retelling the story and sequencing all the characters the boy meets.

Telepractice works because it's not a different service, it's simply a different way of delivering that same service. Same quality, same ethics, same results.

I used to have a massive laundry list of language skills I was frantically cycling through.
😓Summarizing and retelling
😓Plurals and possessives
😓Synonyms and antonyms
And that’s just the beginning.
I never did a very good job teaching any of them because I was spreading myself so thin.
So I asked myself some difficult questions:
"What if I focused on LESS, not MORE?"
"What if I ONLY worked on the skills that had the biggest impact on overall language skills?"
When I found the answer, I started getting students off my caseload because they'd met their goals, not because they'd plateaued.
And many other students made breakthroughs that finally got them their LRE.
Ever since then, I’ve been sharing those insights with other SLPs…and they’ve been able to do the same.
I just wrote an article on the three principles I used to help get it done.
DM me and say “vocab booster” and I'll share the full article with you.

So we meet again PPVT! This year I’m working as a research assistant on a project that’s centred around bringing a new standardized test to Canada for children with CP 🇨🇦 So, I’m administering the PPVT-IV along with a couple of other standardized tests on typically developing kids.
It never ceases to amaze me how much language kids understand at such a young age. Plus, the kind of deductive reasoning they can use when they don’t understand something - it’s fun to witness!

Facts: There are two main types of apraxia of speech: acquired and developmental. The cause of CAS is yet unknown. While some researchers believe that CAS is a disorder related to overall language development, others believe it is neurologically based and that it disrupts the brain’s ability to send signals to move muscles involved in speech production.
When the movement is also scientifically sound. Love the pillars @thehouseofathlete . The recipe for successfully aging and brain health. @bmarshall 💪🏾🤓 1️⃣Fitness- exercise helps pump oxygen to the brain and improve cognition (memory & executive function). 2️⃣ Fuel- Food is fuel to the brain. Just thinking about food can generate neural activity. Nutrition First
3️⃣Mental Fitness- Psychosocial components influence quality of life, well-being, and social participation. Especially in individuals with frontal lobe damage.
4️⃣Recovery- high levels of stress induces hypertension and other chronic diseases. The brain needs sleep, rest, and laughter.
5️⃣Tribe- Social relationships, social network, and environment contribute to all aspects of health especially in individuals with acquired brain injuries.

Holiday sensory bin FUN! I included colored dice, Pom poms, tiny tongs, erasers and gift boxes from @dollartree. I can’t wait to use this shoe box sensory bin.
➕ Scooping, sorting, squeezing ➕
We've had another busy week so we had 3 of our advent calendar pouches to open today! This activity is a combination of two of them - felt balls and wooden acorns with a variety of different scoops, spoons, tweezers, tongs and sorting boxes.
➕ I've been watching the girls for half an hour or so now and they haven't actually touched the felt balls with their hands because they've been so determined to master the different utensils they have. I let them use tongs a lot - serving dinner for themselves and more - so they're pretty good with tongs.
➕I haven't had to add any language because I haven't been able to get a word in 🤣 but so far they've been making sushi, icecream and lollies, sorting colours, rolling them around and feeding them to their stuffed toys. Now they're having races where they blow the felt balls along the ground. Who knew little felt balls would provide so much opportunity for imaginary play?
➕What could you use at home to recreate this activity?

Prolonged use of a sippy cup can inhibit a child’s oral-motor and swallowing development. Teaching a baby to drink from an open cup can help them master a mature swallow.
If your baby can sit on their own with proper trunk support (around 6 months old) find a small, soft, cup and start with a tiny bit of water. Help your baby guide the cup to their mouth then tilt the cup slowly until the water touches their lips. Wait until your baby closes their top lip on the cup and take it away. Over time tilt more and wait longer as they start sucking the water. Provide plenty of practice and don’t be afraid to let them, or your floor, get wet. Most babies can master this by 10 months!
🤗How to help your toddler grow independence.
1. 🌟Provide opportunities for your child to be independent. Toddlers and twos can carry their own lunch boxes, put toys away, put their shoes by the door, and help with chores like putting clean laundry into drawers.
2. 🌟Give your child time to do simple tasks on his/her own. When planning your family's schedule, add extra time for things like putting on shoes, walking to the car, emptying a backpack, and feeding the dog. It’s worth it to make them feel capable and independent.
3. 🌟Offer your child choices. Let her pick out pajamas, healthy snacks, and favorite play activities. Rather than setting up a power struggle between you and your child, empower them to make their own choices.
His trip to the dentist didn’t go so well...so we’re desensitizing for the next try!! Mom said yesterday he wouldn’t even open his mouth for the dentist and then the dentist tried to push a popscicle stick into his mouth between his lips to make him open up 🤦🏼♀️ So we took it slow today just taking turns being dentists on toys first. After awhile he was ok with me using the nuk brush on him and let me touch each tooth with it. A vibrating tool took a little more convincing and we spent awhile just letting him hold it and then tapping it to his cheeks before he was ok with it on his lips for a short second. After a few turns on the mighty mouth and crocodile he was ok with it between his lips and eventually to touch his front teeth with his mouth closed around it. Next week I’ll repeat this with him as well as introduce gloves 🧤 because sometimes those latex gloves can be scary and feel weird on a sensory kiddos face. We’ll also push for holding our mouth open wide for longer intervals with the nuk brush and getting it open a lil more for the vibrating tool (sensi). Tools used: 🦷 Mighty mouth from super duper
🦷 Kid dental tools from target 🦷 Crocodile dentist toy
🦷 Nuk brush from TalkTools
🦷 Sensi from TalkTools .

Here I am pulling out all the stops to help my client say what he needs to say. I’m using gestures, phonemic cues, direct verbal cues, visuals, and more! I am utilizing my entire speech and language system to help the child produce the target. I also pause and wait to hear his responses. Often, they are semantically appropriate yet lack proper syntax. Also, usually, their verbal output is limited to 1-2 words. We are working on expanding that. So, I model the expressive language I want the child to use, and ask him to repeat. With a little help, he gets the job done. I’ll do this for a while then fade out the assistance.
My winter door during my Clinical Fellowship ❤️ grades K/1/2 drew what they loved most about winter in a paper snow globe ❄️ , grades 3/4/5 cut out paper flames in the shape of their hands and wrote one thing they liked about winter on each finger 🔥 , and grades 6/7/8 wrote a couple of sentences on what they liked most about winter on a paper brick 🧱 this is definitely one of my favorite #doordecor ever!! 🤩🤩🤩 TAG me if you decide to make a similar door design this season 🏷

Another semester finished, another amazing student clinician ❤️ I continue to be so blessed by sharing the journeys of future SLPs. I’m so thankful for our time together, grad students make me better and I can only hope I do the same for each one that comes into my classroom. My girl Savanah is gonna make one awesome champion of children and I can’t wait to watch what she does in the future. Also, I really hope my principal hires her to be my permanent sidekick 🤞Also also, Go Noles!

بارها پیش اومده که حین درمان کودک دارای اختلال در بلع،برای کنترل اندازه ی حجم غذایی که لازمه کودک دریافت کنه به مشکل خوردم 😣چرا ؟
چون مثلاً کودکی که مشکلات شناختی داره و یا سی-پی هست و حرکات غیر ارادی داره،بیشتر از حجم مدّ نظر من،غذا رو گاز میزنه و توی دهنش میگذاره..و وحشتناک تر از اون اینه که دست من رو هم گاز میگرفته (کودکان دارای اختلال در بلع،در بعضی از سطوح،رفلکس گاز گرفتن آنها مهار نشده و بصورت غیر ارادی گاز میگیرند! و دست درمانگر ممکن هست آسیب ببینه،چرا که نیروی غیر ارادی و رفلکسی بسیار بیشتر از نیروی ارادی و کنترل شده ست )
حالا این ابزار چیه ؟بهش میگن Right Bite feeding therapy
Understanding Phonological Awareness will change the way you support your child as they learn to read. Phonological Awareness is an area of language development that encompasses a child’s understanding of how sounds combine to make words. They follow a natural progression. Thinking about what your child can do now will help you know what they should work on next. .
I’m passionate about talking about this area because research shows this is a key area that many kids require direct instruction to become successful readers. This chart shows the ages by which 90% of children develop these skills. By understanding expected development, we can identify deficits early and provide support to encourage development closer to same aged peers. Check my stories today for some ideas to develop these skills!! .
