    Bilingualism & Speech Delay

    in Education

    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.
    I'm Noelle Michaels, speech and learning specialist, and I truly love my job.
    I can be reached via email: noellemichaels@hotmail.com

    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.

    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!

    #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.

Why is it that some people seem to be able to make money without even trying while others struggle so hard all their lives to make ends meet? Why do some people seem to be able to find healthy relationships that they are able to throw away while others can't see to find a soul mate to save their lives? Does it seem like that from the outside looking in or is it really real? What y'all know about that?
    Let's find out. Come through this Wednesday and get your reading and some direction

    Developing A New Improved Meal Plan Urban Therapy with Sun #153

    in Health

    This show will deal with food. Food actually and virtually. Meals Literally and figuratively.

    We have to do better with the way we nourish our bodies with the foods that we eat. Many of us are just eating whatever we want for whatever reason that we see fit. That's sounds liberating but when the health problems start to take away our quality of life, our freedom seems very restricted. It doesn't have to be that way at all. On this show we will learn how to eat to live without sacrificing taste. It's very possible and it's not as hard as people think that it is. Our lives depend on it. We can't play around anymore. You wanna learn effective and healthy ways to lose weight and ward off sickness and disease? We're gonna show you how to do it.

    The other part of this Meal Plan will deal with money and our financial situation. It seems like there's just never enough money to live the American dream the way it was intended to be lived. It seems harder and harder to put the good food on the table. It's only hard because we don't know what we're doing. Not only that but we're probably depending on unreliable sources to feed us the way we want to be fed. In order to break out of the routine of dependence we have to get creative. We should know by now that these corporations are not working in our best interests so what do we do about this? We gotta get our hustle on and supplement our income.

    We have some ideas to share with you on this show show so check it out.
