    Is your child frustrated because no one understands him (or her)?
    If your child has been diagnosed with Verbal Apraxia then you will love the Speech Stories technique developed by Speech Language Pathologist, Noelle Michaels.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #Freedom of Speech vs. What You Can Say

    in Lifestyle

    Freedom of Speech is one of the many misunderstood amendments to the U.S. Constitution. So mamy people think that freedom of speech means that you can say whatever you want to anybody you want. There may be some truth to that ideal but there are consequences to saying certain things, just like there are consequences to doing things. When we think that the law is on our side without having a good understanding of how the law works we can get ourselves into a lot of trouble. Y'all know how trouble goes. We often get into it because we thought we knew what we were doing when we really didn't and then we end up trying to dig ourselves out of trouble. That's not always from a legal standloint. Our exercise of supposed freedom of speech can get us into violent situations, get us kicked out of clubs, organizations, homes etc. It can also get us fired from jobs and find us having to post bail to get out of jail.


    So do we know the difference between  The 1st Amendment aka Freedom of speech and what you can actually say is? If you listen to this show you will get a much better understanding of what that is.


    Here's some of the things that will be covered on the show.:


    What does the 1st Amendment actually say and what does it cover?


    What curse words are you able to use when talking to a police officer without fear of arrest?


    What constitutes verbal abuse?


    What will qualify as violating someone's civil rights?


    Why don't many defense lawyers allow their clients to testify in court even if they may be innocent of a crime?


    What kinds of things can you say at work that will allow them to fire you and disqualify you from collecting unemployment?


    Why can't you yell out fire in a movie theater or public building?


    What qualifies as incitind a riot?


    What things will get you investigated by federal authorities?


    Yeah, we're gonna get into all of that.

    Music Therapy and Speech

    in Health

    On April 27, Roia Rafieyan will join me to talk about her work as a music therapist in a state facility for folks who have a variety of intellectual and developmental disabilities. Most of the folks she works with are on the autism spectrum, and mostly they don’t use speech to communicate. She blogs at The Mindful Music Therapist and is also a singer/songwriter. Roia's music springs mostly from her work as a music therapist. Her passion for her work is reflected in her lyrics and point of view as a songwriter. She is a strong advocate for those who cannot always speak for themselves. Literally. Because her job is based so much on attitudes, emotions, and reactions to different situations, is it any wonder that these are the things that come out in her music? Who can't relate to an underdog?
