In-depth language samples continue to be the best tools for evaluating bilingual students. Language samples prove to be...
Have a client on your caseload that is demonstrating difficulty producing the CH sound? Perhaps you're a parent whose child is in speech therapy working on the CH sound? The CH sound can be a tricky sound to teach because it's hard to visually see what's going on inside the mouth when saying the sound. But no worries, here are some tips to help achieve that tricky CH sound.
Perhaps you recently got assigned to a new school or site that consists of a large bilingual and/or multilingual caseload, and perhaps you're not bilingual. Not speaking the student's language can be quite overwhelming and stressful (trust me, I've been there!). I know the feeling of not quite knowing where to start in intervention, or not knowing how to support your students. Well luckily, bilingual SLP, Ingrid Owens-Gonzalez has some important tips to share with all SLPs. Here are 3 things Monolingual SLPs can do to support bilingual populations today.
Finding good CEUs can be difficult especially when you want to find relevant courses that are affordable and applicable to your current job setting. If you are coming towards the end of your ASHA CEU cycle, or if you simply want to learn more about best practices when working with culturally and linguistically diverse students then keep reading because I have compiled a list of great CEU courses/providers that every bilingual (& monolingual) SLP should look into.
This is an incredible resource. It is extremely valuable in that it allows SLPs to do a quick analysis of bilingual language samples. It is very clear, and the charts with the norms are very helpful and provide the most key information for easy analysis. This will make bilingual language assessment more effective and efficient. BUY THIS!

You are going to love these cards if you work with bilingual (Spanish/English) articulation students. I love that I can have both languages on one card instead of having to have a separate deck for English and separate deck for Spanish. The cards themselves are high quality (nice and thick) with an included ring if you want to hand them up (I hang mine on command hooks). There is an included booklet that explains why using the cognate pairs are beneficial in therapy. Seriously a new go to product in my therapy room. Can't wait for more sounds to come out!

These bilingual articulation cards are AMAZING! Whether you speak Spanish or not, it is a great product when working with students who come from bilingual households. It's great to finally have a set of flashcards that come in TWO languages! No more double sets of your target phonemes with these cards! There is truly nothing like this on the market for speech therapy. I love that the images are diverse and colorful, yet not too cartoon-like so it can be used with both children and adults. The cards are really sturdy and come with a detachable ring which is SO PRACTICAL. You can mix and match the cards and add them to a ring to make your own customized deck for mixed speech therapy groups. I cannot wait for more sounds to be released because I will definitely be getting all of them. I'm all for supporting small Latina-owned business and this is truly a great product.
