oh, to be forgotten by all

I just went to go pick up a student for speech. As I walk up to the classroom she comes out. I'm thinking, "Great! She's remembering to come to speech". But no, at this point the student informs me that she really did forget, she just came out of her class to use the bathroom. So, instead of patiently wait for her (she's a 6th grader, she doesn't need me to wait), I decided to write this blog post. Oh, there she is now.

Rants of /r/ articulation therapy

Oh, I just want to rant a little bit. I'm sick of /r/ kiddos not progressing. My younger kids make some good progress, but my 6th graders are making no progress. I don't know what to do short of grabbing their tongue and putting it in the right spot. Errr... (or rather Ehhhhh). Anyway, who's still in the schools? Anybody have any good ideas for /r/ articulation therapy for older students?]

Is anybody out there?

I actually know you guys are because I still get hits for this site, so I'll just posting. I try to do that a little more often. If you would like to post something and you forgot the email, please contact me. I don't want to post that email on the web (don't want just anybody to post), but email me, I have the same email from college (the gmail one that is).

Happy New Year!!

Fellow SLPs!  It's been TOO long!  I miss you all.  It is time for a blog entry from each of us.  I know Linds had a baby since I last saw her, Rachel moved, Bob's wife is pregnant again (right?) and I need to know more!
I'm still working at UofU Hospital and I love it but sometimes I think about doing traveling therapy.  Have any of you ever thought of that?  Good money, lots of adventure?
I get my very first student on Monday- she's straight from our beloved USU, and I am excited and a little nervous to share my, knowledge with another.  :) 
I heard Gantz isn't teaching anymore, and that Chad still is, and also works for Prenke-Romich AAC company.  I saw Gillam at ASHA, and that PhD student who's name escapes me right now.  Anyway, let's reunite and eat good food soon!  That last party at Fat Cats was fun.  Love y'all!
