I have seen, in my work in the schools, cases in which students have been forced into isolation or seclusion rooms against their will and have screamed, pounded on the door, and cried out for some kind of support or control. After their seclusions, the students—one in pre-K and two in elementary school—exhibited fight-or-flight responses and a lack of trust for teachers and the school community. One child ran away from staff in the days immediately thereafter and acted stunned and dissociated, trying to avoid the painful reminders of the trauma. Another child exhibited extreme anxiety—her body was hyper-aroused and her voice quivered. A third child cried and displayed more defiant behavior toward staff in the weeks afterward.

Professional Work Attire Ideas for the Modern Day SLP

Confession time. I love clothing and dressing up for work every day. I would gladly spend the rest of my life, serving students in the schools instead of working in a hospital or SNF for a multitude of reasons, including the option of a wardrobe.

The mother of an 11-year-old boy on the autism spectrum was exasperated. Her son—who has high-functioning autism—expounded at length about the video game Minecraft. And the monologue-ing could continue for five, 10 or 15 minutes, no matter the listener’s level of interest. Worried that her son’s singular focus would alienate potential conversation partners and friends, the mother turned to an online autism forum for advice. She shared that she typically cut short her son’s monologues after a minute or two, in hopes that he’d learn conversational self-control. But others in the forum suggested that this was insensitive and she should let him talk longer and ask follow-up questions. So which is the better way to teach such a child about the art of talk-sharing? Actually, neither is ideal, say speech-language pathologists specializing in social communication and pragmatics. Stopping the child from talking could discourage him from conversing entirely, and only inquiring about his special interest could fuel his difficulty with switching topics or noticing another person’s interest level.

High School Writing Prompts for Speech!!

If you’re a high-school based SLP, you rarely have to deal with RTI, you work great hours, you usually don’t have to find/beg your students to come to speech, and you get to talk about prom, football, and acne breakouts. It’s what you do. So, how do you serve your students to the best of your ability? Well, if they are in the general ed setting or co-taught classes, it’s very likely that their English teachers are using “writing prompts” for warm-ups, essays, and tests. [ 280 more words ]
