    Children's Corner - Sullie Saves the Seas - Ocean Awareness

    in Family

    Sullie Saves the Seas with author Goffinet McLaren
    Goffinet McLaren grew up in the historic town of Carrickfergus, on the water`s edge of Northern Ireland.  Surrounded by the sea, she was aware at a very early age of the importance of caring for the ocean and its inhabitants.  As she grew, she developed a passion to make a difference to our planet.
    After retiring to the coast of South Carolina, Goffinet realized that something dreadful was happening!  Litter of all sorts, and particularly plastic products, carelessly left on the beach by thoughtless visitors, were being washed into the sea.
    Concerned about the impact of this plastic in the ocean, she investigated what might be known about this problem, and encountered Capt. Charles Moore, the sea captain who had discovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch some years before.
    As she learned more about Capt. Moore’s research, her worst fears about plastic in the ocean were confirmed.  As a result of plastic ingestion, millions of birds, seals, dolphins, turtles, and even whales, suffer heartbreaking deaths, a phenomenon that Goffinet refers to as “a holocaust of ocean life.”  Haunted by what she had learned, she resolved to bring more awareness to the plight of marine life.
    One day as she watched some gulls pecking at a piece of plastic, it occurred to her that generations of seagulls must have witnessed the same changes that had taken place in the ocean since she herself was a little girl.

    Solving Problems Collaboratively: An Overview

    in Parents

    In this inaugural edition of Collaborative Problem Solving at Home, Dr. Greene describes how challenging kids come to be challenging: they're lacking the skills not to be challenging. This perspective represents a dramatic departure from viewing challenging kids as manipulative, attention-seeking, unmotivated, coercive, and limit-testing. Dr. Greene also describes how to go about figuring out what skills your kid is lacking, through use of the Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP). He discusses the fact that challenging behavior occurs under highly predictable conditions, called "unsolved problems," and describes how to go about identifying these unsolved problems in your child. A great introduction to Collaborative Problem Solving for parents!

    #275 Skills a Toddler MUST Use BEFORE Words Emerge - Show 1 of New Series

    in Parents

    Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she begins a new series of shows to discuss that skills that children must acquire before they learn to talk and use words meaningfully to communicate. 
    While it is true that "All kids develop differently," there's a general pattern of development that children follow before we begin to hear words - whether kids talk late or on time.
    In this week's show, we'll begin this series with a brief overview of what happens when a child uses a word and then spend a good portion of the show looking at what's normal regarding vocabulary size from 12 months to 48 months. 
    Additionally, we'll review a few red flags that let us know a child is at risk for more than late talking.
    For a written summary of today's show, read the post below at Laura's website teachmetotalk.com:
