Let’s consider how various seated positions and other environmental modifications can be incorporated throughout their day.
The diversity and variety of demographics that we are able to treat as SLP’s is something I feel so fortunate to be a part of. When I started at a school, I thought that I would lose some of my medical knowledge but this basis of knowledge helped me more than I thought. I was still able to treat a variety of needs at the clinic, but now my knowledge has expanded to helping students navigate their school environment, both socially and academically.
When I ask about any board games they have at home, they tell me about this one specific time they played this fun game with their family, their sibling, or got one on one time with their parent. They tell me who won, where they played, and are able to elaborate on this great memory.
Losing my grandmothers was one of the toughest losses I have ever experienced because they were always an unlimited source of love and wisdom in my life. I find myself invoking this wisdom more and more when asked for advice by stressed parents.
