• Meet my new best friend, Jena,  @independentclinician! She’s helped so many clinicians (just look at all the names on the wall behind her!), and I had the best time chatting with her last night.  Jena really knows her stuff and I would take her class if I hadn’t already been in business for myself for almost 20 years. She’s genuinely easy to talk to and SO SO NICE!! Thank you, Jena, for interviewing me for your podcast - I hope we get a chance to chat again very soon. Cheers!!

• Does anyone else make videos of videos?? I do for kids who frequently forget their homework and/or iPads (which is fairly common) so we can review what we learned the following week. You can practice while making the video  on their iPad and then your students can use them all week long at home. It’s a win win!!

• That pesky “r” sound can be SO difficult to produce. To undo old “habits” with teenagers, we target body posture, lip & tongue position, and remember to remove the “w” or “o” sound at the ends of these words. Tactile cueing is a huge help as well. This student smiled at the ends of words and he’s getting there!! Thanks @littlebeespeech
