I love this simple #SnowmanCraft for my preschoolers. So much vocabulary, following directions, sensory aspects, and room for them to be creative. It’s a perfect activity if you can’t cover holidays in your speech room. #SLPMotivationMonday

E nesta manhã de 09 de Dezembro, Dia do Fonoaudiólogo, apresentei o meu novo projeto “Fono na Praça”.
A ideia é levar a Fonoaudiologia à rua. Para todas as pessoas e lugares (parques, praças, centro...). Hoje foi a vez do Parque da Cidadania (@parquedacidadania).
Conversamos sobre a atuação nas alterações de motricidade orofacial (músculos da face, mastigação, deglutição, sucção, respiração e fonação), desde a amamentação até as intervenções com o idoso; nos transtornos da linguagem (oral e escrita); nas empresas, com a intervenção preventiva, mencionando a importância da utilização dos equipamentos de proteção individual (EPI) e das avaliações audiológicas. Informei também sobre Terapia Assistida por Animais com a participação de cachorros e cavalos; além da atuação com os profissionais da voz.
Parabéns, Fonoaudiólogos, pelo nosso dia!
Agradeço ao publicitário Ricardo Torres (@ricardotorres79) e ao conselheiro regional Cláudio Martins (@claudio_mclima) que contribuíram para esta ação.

Today’s DIY prompt sheet for a client with a lateral /s/ (i.e. a less common type of lisp where the tongue protrudes outside the sides of the teeth). I like to use metaphors to explain tongue placement & reduce the pressure for a client to “fix” their productions. Instead, it can be helpful to pretend the tongue is it’s own entity, and the client can help the tongue make a nice sound, rather than using feedback that puts the pressure of the client themselves. I use the metaphor of a “snake” for the tongue, and a “cage” for the teeth. I’ll often give feedback such as, “Remember Mr. Snake needs to be inside the cage” and “Mr. Snake got out that time. Let’s say it again and put him back in the cage”. In today’s session we focused on auditory discrimination of correct/incorrect productions (client had to point to number 1 or 2 to signal which was incorrect) and /s/ CV level #speechpathology#speechtherapy#articulation#lisp#articulationtherapy#laterallisp#auditorydiscrimination
This is how our 1-page poster is displayed in my therapy room. Glued it onto black construction paper and laminated it. Students mark their Zone with a clothespin. Click on profile link for website to download PDF ⬆️🌟 #simplymotorskills
I fell in love with this story and appreciate how important it is in today’s society.
I can understand the apprehension that Norman feels when he discovers that he’s strikingly different to other children. I can understand why he hides his difference, fearful that someone will discover it, even his parents. We see it every day.
It’s not a trivial difference after all—Norman grows wings. They’re elegant and graceful. He sees how extraordinary and exciting they are, in the beginning. Yet, because it’s not ‘normal’ for a child to have wings, he covers them. His mood changes from a vibrant, happy child, to someone who is withdrawn, cautious.
Norman’s wings represent any difference our children may have. The yellow coat he hides them under embodies the many emotions that accompany a fear of being accepted.
Perfect—can it really be defined? Each person is unique—they are perfectly them. We’re not made from cookie cutters, we’re not meant to be exactly alike. Difference is beautiful and perfectly perfect.
Make easy to read and understand visual reminders on the Zones program. Small enough to tape into student folders, attach to student desks, and display at student work stations. Add your student’s name to clothespin for them to mark their current Zone. Can be used in classroom, therapy clinic, or home.

Here’s a 4 year old with a motor planning disorder with muscle weakness. He wasn’t able to drink through a straw when we started 4 months ago, because he didn’t have the strength or the motor plan to suck. The straws have helped strengthen the check muscles, improve lip rounding and increase tongue retraction. His lips, tongue and jaw are working in coordination and at the same time independent of each other. That’s what we call dissociation, the separation of movement, an important skill / pre requisite for speech articulation. @speakingofspeech #talktools#speechtherapy#talktoolstherapy#slpeeps#speechdelay#articulation#specialneeds#oralmotor#apraxia
