Breathe through your busy-ness!


This is to bring you peace during the holidays season! Remember to breathe and enjoy your moments with friends and family. This was taken on Maui, which is my FAVORITE place to travel! There...aren't you already breathing more fully?!



Life has been busy! I promise I haven't forgotten to create and share with you! Sometimes life just needs to be re-prioritized for awhile. I have a good feeling about January though. Stick with me...I promise I will get some new creations on the site for you. In fact, two of my speechie buddies and I have set aside an entire day to make and take! Have a wonderful HOLIDAY season and keep checking back with me! Life will calm down and my creative juices will have to COME ON OUT!

Bananas for Bananagrams!

 If you are a speech/language pathologist and don't have the game Bananagrams, you are missing out! This game is so versatile! We play it as a group like scrabble, we just create words with it and create sentences with the words, we see if we can use all of the letters to create words in a certain amount of time, etc. The possibilities are endless!

Over reaction, Okay reaction, under reaction

Not only do we need to teach kids about "over reacting", but we also need to teach them about "under reacting". This is frequently seen with kids who struggle with ASD. Here is one worksheet on teaching this concept. You can also refer back to the "Referee" blog that has a number of worksheets and ideas to teach these concepts.

Sorry......thanks to a reader, I found out that you had to ask for permission for all of my resources on here.

They should all be fixed by today!
That would be useful!
