Baby and Rara saw their heron on the news last night. The poor heron was caked in oil from the BP oil gushers. They now want to know how far from the oil they are. They're refusing to go to the lake for a walk.
I am a speech pathologist in private practice (Communication Skills Center) and the author of the Help Me Talk Book:
How to Teach a Child to Say the "R" Sound in 15 Easy Lessons
How to Teach a Child to Say the "S" Sound in 15 Easy Lessons
How to Teach a Child to Say the "L" Sound in 15 Easy Lessons (also available in Kindle).
I'm far from a tech geek or someone who has to have the latest electronic device, but when the iPad first came out I wanted one. Maybe I thought it would be a fun personal toy. Who knows. What I didn't expect was that it would have the potential to be a game changer for speech pathologists. A year later, I am convinced that this device will change the way we deliver services.
