I've been sick the last 5 days with a nasty cough, sore throat, and sinus congestion. It wasn't until one of my coworkers told me today, "I mean this in the nicest way, but you look like shit. You need to go to the doctor" that I finally decided to take care of myself and get checked out. My husband urged me to stay home and rest the last 2 days but I always feel major guilt calling in sick so I've sucked it up and gone in.
How do you get over the guilt and feel okay about taking a day to take care of YOU? Why is it so hard to do?! My doc prescribed me some Flonase so here's to hoping I feel better soon, but in the meantime... Everyone's doing a no prep craft for therapy because I can't handle doing anything else right now 😂 ✂️🖍️ #yougetacraft#andyougetacraft
This is an example of a prek phonology session. I wanted to share this to illustrate a few things.
First, our little clients will always, always try to get things off track. Don't fight it. Expect it. Try to listen and make things fun but also bring it back on track.
Every SLP is different, and some of you may have brought it back to the activity before I did. But I thought it was pretty sweet this little one finally figured out a good way to "trick" me by the end!
PS I just now realized this client was trying to trick me by saying volcano the first time. I missed that!
This has got to be my toughest term at @SUSS . #ialmostgaveup midway through the term, because I felt that I wasn’t the best person to impart knowledge on #phonology to the #students . There were so many times I simply couldn’t answer their questions. I felt very demoralized. But the #englishdepartment believed in me, and encouraged me to #stickitout , which I did. This little gift from my students encouraged me tremendously. I may not have the best content knowledge, but I did #teachfrommyheart . I’m glad they could feel it. Special thanks to @tanludwig for always believing in me. #sgteacher
In my last post I shared how important it is to address every domain of speech/language while working with little ones, especially those with #t21 , like my precious M! Here is a close up and description of our speech domain cube for the week on our #themedspeechlanguageshelf 🤗. ✏️We are using the puzzle on the bottom, specifically the “bugs” and working on auditory discrimination of “rug” vs “bug”. Our See and Learn Speech Program also has a /b/ sound card and a /r/ sound card I’m using to give Madeleine the sound visually as well! #visualcuesmatter ✏️ I have also pulled shh, boo, and up Speech Cards as they go well with our unit this week. “SHH, bunny sleeps, peek a BOO with the bunny’s blanket, and UP, UP, UP the bunny goes on the ladder. (All using the little bunny house, see last post for pic of that 😉) We are carrying these same words over to our specific speech targets for the week. Madeleine imitates the word and puts the card in the box. This simple task just seems to motivate her more and works in a bit of fine motor. ✏️Lastly, we are working on a #phonology task of lexical acquisition by increasing her awareness of the use of sounds as meaningful elements in communication. If she says, /bu/ I say, “yes, bug good job! “ Sorry for the novel! I’m hopeful this may be useful for other parents but it also helps me stay focused and on task with Madeleine. 💗 Thank you for letting me share my passion for speech and language development in children with #downsyndrome !! #shouttheirworth#happythursday !!
As much as I detest bugs, the kids always love anything bug-related so we do a lot of it in the Spring! Spring is always SUPER crazy, though, so the more mileage you can get out of an activity, the better! Swipe ➡️ to see how @martha_speech used my no prep bug articulation set on cardstock in a sensory bin for a low prep interactive activity!
PS- I'm not sure how I went from picking dead locust exoskeletons from trees and digging for crickets as a child to FREAKING OUT as an adult when my now-husband thought it'd be funny to drop a couple rolly-polies in my backpack in college, but somewhere along the line I developed an irrational fear of bugs and am convinced every time I see a wasp that it's sole purpose in life is to sting me. Even though I've never actually been stung. 🤷♀️🙈 #whyamilikethis
Thanks for hanging here with me, my little Samsung S 5 minion. How many /s/ sounds can you find? What about the /th/ sound, any of those? Can you use them in a sentence or question?
Have fun. Luv from Big D
I picked up the coolest item from the #dollartree ...a dry erase foam cube! 😍 To see how I used this handy dandy gadget, swipe to the next picture.
I have a student who is struggling with phonological awareness due to a language difference. After going through our routine of flashcards, we decided to work on b/p, d/t, and v/f. Every time he rolled, he had to identify the letter and then make the sound the number of times that corresponded with that letter. Then he had to identify if the letter AND/OR the sound appeared in the pictures used in Webber's #functionalcommunication board game. For example, if he rolled the letter "F" (5). He had to identify the letter as "F", then say /f/ five times. Next, he would try to identify if there was an "F" and/or /f/ in the pictures. In this example, he correctly answered that there weren't any pictures that possessed the letter "F." However!!! He learned that "telephone" had the /f/ sound! #success 🎉🎊 Finally, he got to move his game piece 5 spaces. Every time he passed the "start", he received a few pieces of candy. My student had so much fun and the time FLEW by! /f/ and /v/ were worth the most points this go around (at 5 and 6 points respectfully), but you can alter the letter/phoneme/point combos based on need, and target different sounds each week! Once my student masters a pair of sounds (the voiced and voiceless counterpart), we will move them out and replace them with another set such as /k/ & /g/, /s/ & /z/, etc. #dollarstorefinds#phonologicalawareness#phonology#slp#slpgradstudent#teachertalktuesday
This toolbox just makes me 😍 everytime I see it. So beautiful and functional and organized. All of my favorite things! 🙌🏼 ➡️ Did you know that I came up with the idea for this product on a beach in Costa Rica? 🏝 In fact, several of my bestsellers were drafted on vacation.
For some reason getting away from the daily rise and grind let's my mind wander and solve problems in new and creative ways.
And if you're wondering... yes, I do use this as an excuse to travel more! 😂
I get to plan our next trip and I thiiiiiink I want to go to South Africa or Norway or the Galapagos. 🌎 Where would you go if you could travel anywhere?!✈️ #speechymusings#slpeeps#instaslp#speechtherapy#slpsonvacation#speechies#phonology
Brushing up on maximal oppositions therapy for my kids with tooooons of sound errors. I love crackin’ the code for those cuties that make you go 🤨 SLP’s, BUY DIS BOOK. Van Ryper is cool, but there are tons of approaches to try with kids who have made slow progress!
Mengawali kelas Phonology minggu ini dg 'Senam Bibir' dulu biar gak 'kram bibirny' buat mengenal IPA..learning outside of the class is fun guys..!!! Wanna experience this?? Come n join us at Dwijendra University, Faculty of Teacher Training and Pedagogy, English Education Department #EED#Undwi#Phonology#2018#Bali
This is how I teach the phono process of gliding: you have gliding sounds that just glide out of your mouth really easily (w/y) and you have running sounds that involve you moving different parts of your mouth like running: lifting your legs (or tongue for 'l') and bunching your arms (or tongue for 'r'). We then use visuals and find examples of things gliding - the boat, and running - the dog, to cement the concept. Awesome, right?

His work has proved a rich filed for subsequent investigators, and has inspired numerous interpretations and reinterpretations.
His influence extended beyond linguistics; into neighboring disciplines including anthropology and semiotics (the field of study that investigates sings and sing systems generally)
Saussure championed the idea that the language is a system of arbitrary sings, and his conceptualisation of the sing has been highly influential.
Phonetics and phonology were dominant in early modern linguistics. The international phonetic association (IPA) was established in 1886 by a group of European phoneticians.
The British phonetician Henry Sweet (1845-1912) was one of the leading figures in phonetics in second half of the nineteen century.
He and the Polish linguist Baudouin de Courtenay were independently instrumental in development of the notion of the phoneme or distinctive sound, foreshadowed centuries previously by the author of “first grammatical treatise”. .
اثر او به راستی منبع غنی شد برای محققین بعدی و شمار بسیار زیادی از ترجمه های اولیه و ثانویه از اثر وی الهام گرفتند. تاثیر گذاری او از مرز زبان شناسی پا فراتر نهاده و شامل دیگرحوزه های جانبی زبان, انسان شناسی و نماد شناسی ( حوزه ای که به مطالعه و تحقیق در باره سیستم های عمومی علائم و نشانه ها می پردازد) شد.
سوسور به حمایت از این ایده که که زبان مجموعه ای از علائم اجباری و شکل گرفته خارج از انتخاب آدمی است, سخت تلاش کرد و ایده و مفهومی که او از علامت و نشانه داشت بسیار تاثیر گذار بود.
آواشناسی و صدا شناسی در اوائل زبان شناسی نوین نقش قالبی داشته است. موسسه بین المللی علم اصوات و آوا (آی.پی.ای) بوسیله گروهی از آواشناسان اروپایی در سال 1886 تاسیس شد. آوا شناس بریتانیایی هنری سویت یکی از چهره های مهم و کلیدی در علم آواشناسی در نیمه دوم قرن 19 بود.
او و آواشناس لهستانی بودوئن دکورتنی هر یک بطور مستقل در توسعه نظریه اصوات مشخص و فونم ( آواها ) نقش بسیار مهمی داشتند بطوریکه نشانه های این دستاورد قرن ها پیش توسط نویسنده اولین مقاله دستور زبان پیش بینی میشد. .
