This week I’ve been having a blast spending some time with two wonderful speech-language pathologists and friends. They’ve enjoyed analyzing my daughter’s speech and language and we’ve been brainstorming up a ton of great new ideas that I can’t wait to share with all of you!
For now, I wanted to remind you to keep an eye out for “The Perfect Pause” coming up next week as the second step in “The Magic of Waiting Series.” We began that series last week with “A Magical Interaction.” If you haven’t yet read that post and tried it out, please do. If you’ve given it a go, it will make the post on “The Perfect Pause” so much more meaningful to you. And as always, as you practice these techniques, I’d love to hear from you. I may be able to give you some tips on how you could tweak what you’re doing to make it more successful or specify it for your child’s needs.
Also, the readers who are SLPs, OTs, educators, or work in early intervention, should check out my guest post on ASHAsphere, “Early Intervention: How Questions Can Guide Your Practice.” I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback. And I wanted to give you a little something as a thank you for your support. It seems professionals enjoyed my post on Pediastaff titled “A Therapist’s Mantras for Early Intervention,” so I created a printable to help keep those mantras fresh.
If you’d like a copy of the the Early Interventionist’s Pledge as your own, here’s a PDF version for download.
Thanks to all of you, parents and professionals, for supporting Little Stories by reading our posts, trying out the concepts, commenting, sharing, pinning, and tweeting! It makes it so much more fun the more we can interact with each of you!Email this article »
