I am headed off for school vacation next week (couple days down the Cape, and thoroughly disconnected haha), so you won't hear from me for a bit, but I wanted to acknowledge a few mentions of SpeechTechie (and me) that I really appreciated recently.
Thanks to Gary Dunham (and Maggie McGary, who referred him to me) for your feature in the ASHA Leader- The Future at Hand: Mobile Devices and Apps in Clinical Practice, with some quotes from me based on a little interview we conducted electronically. Hopefully you got this one in the mail- I was so excited to get it myself!
Kevin Sitek of the great blog Lillie's iPad also writes for iPhone Life magazine and featured SpeechTechie among other resources in his column. Much appreciated, Kevin!
I really am grateful to the crowd at the new educational podcast EdCeptional, including Jeremy Brown (along with Meg Wilson, Patrick Black, Deb Truskey and Anne Truger), who describes the podcast this way: "EdCeptional highlights access to learning for exceptional students of all abilities. In other words, the show discusses the use of various technologies to enable students in special education greater independence in life and access to the general education curriculum. The EdCeptional crew is made up of several special education teachers and speech language pathologists." EdCeptional mentioned SpeechTechie twice recently, both as a general resource and also highlighting my recent GlogsterEDU Week. Definitely give them a listen- I have really enjoyed their discussions of educational issues and tools.
Finally, though you can't see it unless you are a CASLPA member, thanks so much to Angie D'Aoust and my friends up north for including me among a great crowd of #SLPeeps in your latest newsletter.
Have a great week!!
