    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!

    The Speech Stories Technique for Verbal Apraxia

    in Education

    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.
    Noelle uses words and sounds that a child can produce to build his confidence and belief that he is a capable communicator!  The child begins to act more maturely and temper tantrums lessen or disappear!
    You can learn to make up short repetitive stories of about 3 pages that your child can learn to read aloud with you, and eventually read by themselves.  Even 2 year olds will love Speech Stories!

    Online Conference for Music Therapy

    in Health

    Members of the OCMT organizing committee will join me to talk about the 2016 Online Conference: Expanding Horizons in Music Therapy. This 24-hour worldwide online conference will be held February 6th, 2016!

    The OCMT is a grassroots initiative with big dreams; in 2015 we became a non-profit organization. As a non-profit organization the OCMT will ensure good quality, peer reviewed research and information will be accessible by all Music Therapists around the world; therein by preserving our profession, the quality of our methodology and ultimately improving interventions for our clients.

    The idea is to provide an online service to allow music therapists from around the world to connect and share educative experiences about their work and profession. For now the OCMT is a conference, but maybe later, as an organization it could well become an open forum with a variety of thematic chambers where members could chat, share solutions for some issues or simply get re-energized or feel empowered and less isolated.

    #252 Ideas for Toddlers Who Don't Sit Still for Speech Therapy

    in Parents

    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.
    Reinforce sitting.

    Fighting For A Love That You Don't Even Want. Urban Therapy with Sun #156

    in Lifestyle

    They may be someone that you may have dated or went with or were married to that just don't wanna see you be happy. It could be someone who is currently dating someone else or is married to someone else but somehow has enough time to stalk you or mess up what you have going. They claim that they don't want you but they make sure that you don't get to be happy with anyone else. Why? They show up at places that you go. They make annoying phone calls. They harass people that are close to you and ask questions to people who know you as if they are really pursuing you. All the while they know that you two have nothing going on. Y'all might not even be speaking to each other. What's up with that?

    Bee Venom Therapy Protocol for treating Lyme and Chronic Infections Episode #10

    in Health

    In this segment we will actually be narrating the entire written protocol for treating Lyme and Chronic Infections. Each and every word will be said.

    We realize that reading is very difficult for us to comprehend how to perform BVT properly.

    It seems like Amber & I are seeing many of the same questions, again & again. We want to teach you how to fish for information and provide you the needed resources for this essential information. 

    Please listen to this episode again, and again, and again....it often takes 3 to 6 times to understand & retain all the data. 

    I personally have concerns that as BVT grows (which it will with her new book Pioneers:  Pioneers: Healing Lyme With Bee Venom Therapy) within the Lyme and other communities, Amber will burn out and not bee able to keep personally answering all the same questions a hundred times.

    We want to help, we want to answer your questions ~ that's why we offer the radio show as a means to let you continue to learn. So listen up and take note, we're gonna turn ya into a fisherman!!!

    I strongly encourage you all to utilize this information, take advantage of it and fish for yourselves.

    This is a LIVE show just like our LIVE bees which offer us 100% of the healing effects of the venom. I hope you'll create an BlogTalkRadio account and join in this conversation. Post your questions on the wall and we'll answer them on the show!
