On looking back over our first year of blogging, we’ve been looking over our 58 posts. It’s interesting to see which posts we enjoyed writing the most, and which ones have had the most views (not necessarily the same ones). We thought, since we share this blog, that it would be interesting for us to highlight a few of each others’ posts for people who previously missed them. So today, I’m looking back at a few of Elizabeth’s posts over the past year.
The post she’s written with the most hits (and she’s beaten me by writing the most popular post on the blog so far!) is this one.
It’s good advice for parents about how to help a child who is finding it difficult to speak clearly, with a bit of developmental information thrown in as well, such as which sounds are later to develop. I can see why it’s been popular!
I love it when I read a blog post and find some really practical advice that I can take away and use immediately. It’s even better when I find that on my own blog! On this basis, my favourite of Elizabeth’s posts is this one – How to use an iPad in therapy.
I wished I had read this post before I introduced my iPad to speech therapy sessions, and I’ve certainly used some of the advice with children I have worked with more recently. iPads are fabulous, but it’s important to use them to enhance and encourage 2-way communication with an adult, not just to communicate with a screen!
Finally, I asked Elizabeth which was her favourite post that she’s written so far. She chose this one.
This post is very much a day in the life of a speech and language therapist and a look at some of the skills we didn’t learn at university but need every day!
We hope you enjoy these posts if you missed them the first time around or don’t remember them (why would you?!) Look out for posts about new things over the coming year during the next few days.
