Speech Lady Liz Chapel Hill Snippets Facebook Wedding Guide - How to Make a Wedding Page on Facebook - Storkie Facebook Wedding Guide Designing your Facebook Wedding Page so it is easy to use and a special place to share your wedding news is simple. The Set Up Your first step is setting up a unique Facebook Page for your wedding. Some of it should be familiar; it's similar to how you set up your personal Facebook profile. Step 1: Click on "Create a Page" located under the Facebook Sign Up form. Step 2: Click on "Artist, Band or Public Figure" and submit your page name. Why Not a Facebook Group? Facebook Groups are great for promoting interests and hobbies, but they do not have the same resources and customizable options offered with a Facebook Page. Step 3: Add the FBML Application. Note: You will probably want to create more than one customized box or tab. The Big Picture Facebook allows profile pictures to be 200 pixels by 600 pixels (a vertical rectangle).

Speaking of | Speech/Language Therapy in the Schools Self Regulation Scale I have a confession---when I see something good, I take it and use it. I don't like to recreate the wheel, and I'm really not all that creative. I also work with people that are very hard-working and creative, so when I stepped into my co-worker's office (Heather Petrusa, SLP) and saw this homemade self-regulation scale, I grabbed it (with her permission) and told her that this was worth using and sharing with all of my blogging friends! She said that our mutual friend, an autism itinerant teacher, Leah Wilson, was actually the one who created it, and she (Heather) just tweaked it. Anyone who works with children with autism knows the difficulties in regulating emotions. I liked this scale that Heather and Leah developed because it integrated elements from the 'How does your engine run?' A therapist and teacher can use this scale to first teach emotions, strategies, and self-reflection, and then teach the child to apply these in the classroom. To download in Boardmaker, click here!

Oh No Welcome to my new Speech Therapy blog! Here I will be posting ideas and reviews of my favorite therapy materials. I currently work in a Primary school (preK-2nd grade) and I'm always on the lookout for new materials. There are lots of conferences on theory and evidence-based practice, but sometimes I just want some no-nonsense, fun activities that I can use in my sessions. I'd love to attend an activities fair, where SLPs gather and exchange their favorite tools, materials and activities. In the meantime, I'll be offering my favorites here on this blog and would welcome guest contributors as well. My first game is a winner, invented by my friend Lisa Gastelle.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs I look forward to this theme all year. I try and hold off until it gets closer to spring time, but sometimes I just can't wait any longer. I generally use this with my older kids just because it's a longer book with more advanced vocabulary. Articulation: Print off Boardmaker pictures or adds from a newspaper and have kids cut and paste foods that have their target sound in the word on the cloud (click on picture for freebie). The child can list the foods or they can use the phrase "Cloudy with a chance of...". Language and Social Group: Weather vocabulary match-up There are a lot of idioms that have to do with the weather and these idioms are used quite a bit. I have some students that love talking and learning about the weather. If you want to do a weather theme with your younger kids, here's a post from my friend Orlanda. Email me and let me know of any other weather activities you use.
