Disney and a Disability, Rolling with the Magic, LGBTQ Competency, Diagnosing Dementia, and Conversations with an Toddler

June 12, 2019

Episode 82: Disney and a Disability, Rolling with the Magic, LGBTQ Competency, Diagnosing Dementia, and Conversations with an Toddler

 

This week Michael talks about taking therapy from the clinic to the real world, Michelle talks swimming with a young child, and Matt is live from Disney World. 

A Facebook post had an SLP state she may not work with a patient if she does not agree with their relationship status.  How culturally competent are SLPs when it comes to LGBTQ populations?  June is Pride Month and a study of 4 countries shows that SLPs have difficulty in identifying the needs of a growing population base.  Why does the right diagnosis matter when it comes to Dementia?  Many families hear the word dementia and think Alzheimer’s.  Its important to educate our families and patients about the differences in dementia and the expected outcomes.   Lastly, a wonderful video has hit the internet showing a dad and son talking.  The son, however, is very young but has picked up some great social language skills.  This video is a wonderful model for all parents. 

How do you do Disney World if you have a Disability?  Melissa Knight from Rolling with the Magic joins the conversation this week to help take away some of the anxiety related to vacationing with a disability.  Melissa is a blogger and Disney Parks enthusiast who visits Walt Disney World several times a year. Melissa started her blog to share her experience as a wheelchair user and loves showing people that the parks are for everyone.

ASHA President, ASHA Convention Talk, Reading Aloud to Middle Schoolers, and Special Education Teacher Shortages

June 6, 2019

Episode 81: ASHA President, ASHA Convention Talk, Reading Aloud to Middle Schoolers, and Special Education Teacher Shortages

 

On this week’s show: Michelle talks orientation, Michael returns from Tahoe, and Matt talks parenting. 

Who is to blame for teacher shortages?  How do we keep teachers in the building?  Is it caused by burnout?  A recent NPR article discusses the rise of special education teacher shortages.  Do you spend time in your therapy setting reading aloud?  Would you read aloud to your middle school students?  Research points out that reading aloud helps not just young students but the older students as well.

ASHA President Dr. Shari Robertson stops by to talk what is happening at ASHA.  She speaks on when she found out she was elected, what her current roles and goals for ASHA are, and what she would like to see in the future.  Dr. Robertson speaks on her initiative to add more imagination to therapy, what we can expect at the ASHA Connect 2019 and the ASHA National Convention 2019, ASHA international outreach, and how to carry over the good will from Better Speech and Hearing month into the rest of the year.

SLPs Helping SLPs, FAS and Receptive Language, Reading and Better Parenting, Aggies Achieve, and Stroke Recovery

SLPs Helping SLPs, FAS and Receptive Language, Reading and Better Parenting, Aggies Achieve, and Stroke Recovery

June 1, 2019

Episode 80: SLPs Helping SLPs, FAS and Receptive Language, Reading and Better Parenting, Aggies Achieve, and Stroke Recovery

 

We at Speech Science are heart broken for the families and friends affected on the Western Part of Ohio.  Because of this, Speech Science has started emergency.speechsciencepodcast.com to allow SLPs to help other SLPs when therapy materials are destroyed due to natural disasters. 

Children with FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) exhibit atypical auditory behaviors.  The study this week looks into the impact FAS has on the receptive language of children.  Parents who read to their children may be better parents according to a study out of Rutgers.  Reading with children may be a predictor to the type of parenting style you will employ.  Out of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is a wonderful story about a young stroke patient and her recovery thanks to her SLP.  Lastly, Texas A&M has created a program to allow young adults, no matter the disability, to attend college courses.

Guillain-Barré Syndrome Recovery Part 2, Narratives on Autism, Battling Fake Science, and Soap Box Derby

May 18, 2019

Episode 78: Guillain-Barré Syndrome Recovery Part 2, Narratives on Autism, Battling Fake Science, and Soap Box Derby

 

On this week’s episode, Matt recounts his car accident while doing home health care and what it was like in the back of a police car, Michael traveled back to the big apple for family before his end of year evaluations kick in, and Michelle got to celebrate her first Mother’s Day as a mom and prepares for therapy training with horses.    Do you use people first language?  According to a recent study, people with autism may prefer to be called an autistic person.  How does that change your therapy mindset?  The measles outbreak has come on the backs of questionable and false science leading to anti-vaccine movements.  How do we in the clinical setting combat false science?  Lastly, many kids dream of driving a soap box derby car to victory.  One town is allowing children and young adults with disabilities and opportunity to achieve this dream for themselves. 

Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of its peripheral nervous system.  Carly Stoltenberg, M.S., CCC-SLP was working as an SLP for the past 20 years when at the age of 46 her live changed over-night.  On part 2 of her interview, Carly talks about recovery and what her new normal looks like.   How do you handle not being able to communicate when your job was teaching others to communicate?  What would you say to a doctor who told you your recovery chances were low?  Carly handles it like a champ!
