Congress Must Delay Netanyahu's Speech
Breaking with longstanding protocol, GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner recently invited Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to address a joint session of Congress without proper consultation with the White House or his Democratic colleagues.
There's no issue with Israel's leader addressing America's legislators. In fact, we welcome it. But the timing here--weeks before Israeli elections, and as Congress is debating legislation (aggressively backed by Netanyahu) that could impact our sensitive negotiations with Iran--couldn't be worse, and we need your help in making that clear.
Every Member of Congress has a responsibility to let Speaker Boehner know that this invitation is inappropriate, and that the speech must be delayed.

"...As in many cases in the past, Netanyahu’s attempts to confront Obama on the president’s home court boomeranged. Once again Netanyahu ended up on the losing side. Having no meetings with any senior administration officials, with an agenda that has turned temporarily irrelevant, and in a situation where his trip could cause more damage than good, perhaps Netanyahu would do better to stay at home and focus on his election campaign."

As long as Obama is in the White House, he has no intention of meeting Netanyahu. If reelected, the Israeli PM may find himself abandoned and...

Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she discusses cute ideas to use during therapy with toddlers for Valentine's Day. All ideas are listed here in this post. In the post you'll also find links to FREE Therapy Tip of the Week videos with even more ideas! Hope you enjoy these ideas with your little sweethearts!
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she provides ideas for a mom who complained that her child can't sit still to work with her on developing language and has difficulty maintaining attention during therapy sessions.
From Laura... Here's the truth... MANY late talking toddlers can't (not WON'T) sit still. We'll BRIEFLY talk about why that is and then move on to ideas that WORK for our friends who need to move, move, move. Here's a list of things I do with my busiest little friends:
Do what they like!
Decrease demands overall so that a child doesn't feel "forced." Participation is your ONLY goal. This can dramatically help!!
Don't sit... MOVE! Target language during gross motor movement or outside playground activities such as sliding, jumping on a trampoline, swinging, etc...
Try social games where moving is a part of the game - Ring Around the Rosies, Row Row Your Boat, Ride a Little Horsie - verbal routines during those games to target receptive and expressive language.
Introduce play that involves moving - improvise a basketball game even without a hoop, bowling, launcher toys, and relay games
Work on Structured Teaching Tasks - TEACCH method
Over time begin to alternate activities move - sit - move - sit
Modify a child's space so that movement is less of an option. Beware....belting them into a high chair is usually NOT a good option!
Don't try strategies for older children like "if/then." Many times our little friend DON'T understand that promise.
Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of www.teachmetotalk.com as she answers a mom's question about her late talking toddler since the arrival of a new baby...
"I hope you can help me! We bought your dvd for our daughter who will be 3 in April. Before our second daughter was born (in August), she would name everything we pointed to. She would tell us the color of things animal sounds, etc. Since the new baby, she refuses to answer these questions. We know she knows them because she will be in the room alone and say "What's this? A horse! Nay!" And occasionally she will answer them for us. But hardly ever. She also prefers to say "Thirsty" instead of "I am thirsty." which she CAN say. Same thing for "I want...." She prefers to say "Muffins" instead of "I want muffins" but she occasionally says the whole thing. When we ask her to say it, she gets upset. A while ago, she would scream "THIRSTY - AHHHH!" and we would try to get her to not scream. She stopped saying it altogether, so we are trying to avoid that again. Can you help us? Our insurance does not cover speech therapy and the person who came to us with early intervention didn't believe she could speak at all. We are trying just to repeat what we want her to say but give her what she wants but we're getting nowhere. Same thing with the labeling questions. We followed your DVD and she follows everything perfectly, it's just these other things.
Thanks so much for your time!"
Tune in for my ideas! It may not be what you think!!
Should parents stick with only one language, if their child has a speech delay?
Does bilingualism confuse children with speech delays?
Can bilingualism cause speech delays?
If you've been told that speaking to your own child in your native language is doing him harm, then please listen to this show!
If you're a speech therapist and have ideas that are going against what you were taught in college or at an internship, then this show is for you!
If you want to better understand bilingualism and its relationship to speech and language development, then please tune in or listen in archives.
The children are depending on us to know what's helpful and what is not. Let's be there for them and help them to become better communicators.

Our special guest is Felicia Slattery. She just authored a fabulous book called Kill the Elevator Pitch: Stop Selling, Start Connecting. I can’t wait for us to explore what that means on this episode...
It’s almost like the definition of insanity. We’re all taught that we need an “elevator speech” just as much as we need a business card, a website, and air to breathe in order to be successful. But the crazy part is NO ONE likes to give those canned elevator speeches and NO ONE likes to hear them because they’re usually full of blah, blah, blah meaningless marketing drivel and feel very contrived and yucky.
More importantly, evidence proves even the most well-crafted and best-delivered elevator speeches don’t work to bring in new business. And they completely fall flat on establishing a new business relationship.
Come and find out what to do instead. It has something to do with… not selling, but connecting.
During this interview Felicia is sharing:
• The 3 main reasons why the “elevator speech” doesn’t work anymore for business (if it ever did!).
• If not an “elevator speech” what exactly you can say when someone asks you what you do so you can naturally participate in a conversation and honor the other person as an actual human being (gasp! Yes you can!).
• The only 5 words you need to remember to never have to hear another elevator speech ever again, short-cut the relationship-building, and get to the know-like-and-trust part right away – without sounding canned or unnatural.
If you have any questions you'd like to ask, send them into firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of the show.

In this episode pediatric Laura Mize, M.S, CCC-SLP of teachmetotalk.com answers a variety of questions from SLPs and parents. We'll talk about how I write goals for toddlers and young preschoolers for speech therapy, what it means when a toddler is fatigued during therapy (it may not be what you think!), and why DISTRACTION is one of the most powerful tools you can use when working with our little friends. If we have time, we'll even tackle a mom's questions about handling her toddler's language regression since the arrival of a new baby. All that and maybe even a little more on this week's show!!
