I"ll also provide some general advice and tips for teaching pronouns in every day routines as well as several successful therapy activities I've used to help parents work on pronouns at home.

What exactly is sleep? What is it's definition? (Wikipedia)

Infants (4-11 months) 12 - 15 hours
Toddlers (1-2 years) 11 - 14 hours
Preschoolers (3-5 years) 10 - 13 hours
School-age children (6-13 years) 9 - 11 hours
Teenagers (14-17 years) 8 - 10 hours
Young Adults (18-25 years) & Adults (26-64 years) 7 - 9 hours
Older Adults (65 and over) 7 - 8 hours.
Why is sleep so important in our lives?
~60% of waste products produced during sleep, body recovers, skin restores,
Lack of sleep: slows down healing process, motor skills are slower, tremors from lack of sleep or too much caffeine....
Why does good sleep improve our health?
Where do you sleep the best, your own bed or anywhere? Why? Mattress, pillow, blanket, different bed, unfamiliar room, ...
Who decides on whether or not we sleep well?
For children it's the parents......
For adults..... they decide.....
Good, deep, and solid sleeps makes you feel so good that you can say upon waking up in the morning:
"Today is the best day of my life again!!!"
Answer the above questions for yourself and see where you can improve.

Today's guest is Monae Mayurama, SLP from Las Vegas. She's developed her own interactive books that she uses in small group sessions with preschoolers. I learned about Monae from an SLP I met several years ago while teaching one of my courses in Georgia. She sent me this glowing email about Monae's work:
"I started to work in the schools this year and work with an amazing speech therapist Monae. She has taught me so much about working with autistic children, especially in a small group setting. This has always been a challenge for me, but she has a true gift.
She has authored and designed an entire series of interactive books and uses them so beautifully in small group lessons to target so many language goals. She has an amazing way of including imitation and receptive targets in her group sessions.
I told her about the work that you do... I also thought she would be an AMAZING guest on your podcast to explain how she is able to target language goals in a group setting and how she is able to work with children on so many levels at once since this is an area of difficulty for many of us."
I'm excited to hear Monae's strategies and I know you will be too!
