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 discusses her top 10 toys for first speech therapy sessions with toddlers. You can use these ideas for clinical settings, home visits, and even sessions when you're implementing a coaching model since most of these activities are with famliar toys or versions of toys most families already own. For a complete listing of the toys, including links so you can SEE them, check out the post "First Sessions" Toy List.

We see a lot of strange things in the summertime. You never know what you're gonna get on a daily basis while you're driving, riding public transportation, walking, sitting on your porch or steps, shopping, looking out of your window or whatever. The summertime does crazy things to people. It' makes some people act out. When you think about it, you've probably seen the wildest things ever during the warm weather months. So, what have you seen this year? How about last year?
This is a call in show.
You are encouraged to share anything crazy that you've seen this summer. Nothing is too wild, ratchet, ghetto, unbelievable, ridiculous or just plain wrong.
I know that personally, I don't have to leave my street. I have pictures! They give me a show every single day! Wait until I share my stories. Share yours as well and let's have some fun on this show.
There may be drugs involved. In fact I know there will be.
Dr. Meganne Masko joins me to discuss music therapy research in the Journal of Music Therapy, Spring 2015, Volume 52, Number 1. If you'd like to participate or prepare for Journal Club, read the abstracts of each article prior to the show. We'll discuss our impressions of the research and how we apply each article to our work as board certified music therapists.
