"How Katie Got a Voice (and a Cool New Nickname" 
celebrates that which makes us all unique, but also highlights how sometimes a little help is needed to show us how much we are alike. The story is told by a fourth grade classmate of Katie, the new girl in school. Everyone in the school, even the principal and custodian, have nicknames related to their individual interests and personalities. When Katie comes into the class, the students are eager to involve her in their activities and to learn what is special about her. This proves to be quite a challenge. Katie has significant physical disabilities which make her dependent on a Personal Care Assistant for everything, even communicating. How can Katie fit in with her classmates when she can't even talk? When Katie is introduced to assistive technology, she is finally able to communicate with her new friends. As a result, the students are delighted to see her as a person with many interests and abilities, just like them. Katie knows she is a valued member of the school when she is given her own special nickname.  This book was written by Pat Mervine, an SLP and assistive technology consultant with 20 years' experience with students who have significant communication impairments.

"The Mouth With a Mind of Its Own" 

Matthew has a problem.  His mouth has a mind of its own.  His brain thinks one thing, but his mouth says another. He can't participate in class discussions. He can't ask for a snack.  He can't even say his own name!  Then he meets the school speech therapist.....

Artic-U-Checks CD
   for Baseline &
Progress Monitoring

Price:  $15  

The Artic-U-Checks CD contains 125 printable data collection pages for 50 consonant singletons, blends, and clusters in the initial, medial, and final positions of one to three syllable words at the word and sentence levels.  Each data page contains 10 target words and 10 sentences of four to eight words in length containing those target words, along with a grid for measuring baseline ability and progress over 5 progress monitoring sessions.  These pages are designed for quick and easy data collection that can be summarized in Evaluation Reports, IEPs, and quarterly progress reports. Artic-U-Checks is NOT a standardized test and does not take the place of articulation tests, nor does it replace or recommend any therapy methods. Instead, Artic-U-Checks is used to supplement formal testing by probing each error sound 10 times in each position of a word. The results of the probes help the speech/language pathologist make informed decisions for therapy goals and intervention, and can be used to graphically communicate skill levels and progress to parents and students.
