Applications such as Google Maps help us to locate ourselves and are great in History and Geography classes (Leyden). Although the majority of apps that serve as a digital Whiteboard are optimized for tablets, there are also some that can be used directly from the student’s phone and allows the student to project everything you produce. In addition to allowing students to project what they create, mobile devices make it easy to type and organize notes. Calculator apps can help with Math to solve problems. Devices can even replace heavy, paper textbooks.
I first discovered speech-language pathology back when I was in high school, in a very unexpected way. I was talking with my grandmother, who had told me she received her Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology after my father was born. My father has had hearing aids since the age of five, and had to continuously attend speech therapy while growing up. My grandmother told me stories of how she would sit with my father every night, away from his six other siblings, with the lights off and talk to him. She would say words to him, which he would then have to repeat back to her, without relying on his normal trick of reading lips.
Depression is a mood disorder, which affects one in 10 of us and varies from person to person. Studies have shown that about 4% of children aged five to 16 in the UK are anxious or depressed.

I don’t know. What I do know – and what I have grappled with over the past several years – is that I was not alone in this struggle. Stuttering can be crippling and it can touch anyone. Over time, I understood that having a stutter isn’t something to conceal, but rather embrace. I was ashamed of being a stutterer, but as I came to
I am speaking about the uncontrollable stutter that occurs often when a person speaks, also known as a speech disfluency. I myself have a stutter and of course I am not the only one in my community with this problem; I knew of few other people that also struggled with a speech impediment. I realized that many people failed to understand the actuality of a stutter and constantly take it as a joke, therefore constantly misunderstanding people who stutter. To help others understand stuttering, I set out to explain myself
People with hearing or sight loss can feel excluded from society as an individual, they may not be able to gain employment as the employer may not have the facilities to support the individual. Other people may not recognize the individual as having a disability as you may not be able to see the disability especially if they are deaf. This will lead an individual being treated with less understanding. Often caused by people being ignorant of someone with a sensory loss. This will prevent the individual from being included in society will lead to depression, low self esteem and self worth.
Other thing is that, Hayley S. Arnold, Ph.D. Purdue University mentioned in her article (2009) on "The Stuttering Foundation" website that while she was doing doctoral work at Vanderbilt University, she measured emotions using a special device on the behaviors produced by nine children who stutter and other nine children who don’t stutter. She analyzed behaviors; the children who stutter were less skilled at emotion arrangement. She found that the children who stutter using fewer emotion arrangement strategies stuttered
After we completed the guided reading section we worked with words. During our working with words lesson, Reid worked on both phonics and sight words skills. For phonics, we used clips cards and sorting as our main strategies. With these two strategies, we changed them around to meet the needs of the student. We used sorting for r-controlled vowels, identifying lowercase ‘b’ and ‘d’, and sorting vowel sounds.
A Speech-Language Pathologist works directly with a wide variety of patients, birth to adulthood who suffers from speech or language disorders. Those disorders may include disfluency, expressive or receptive language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders. I am fervid about helping individuals, and I have seen first-hand how important our voice truly is. This is why I chose a career in this field, I want to help, and give a voice to those who are not always heard. As a Speech- Language Pathologist it is important that you obtain certain trains in order to be successful; including, interpersonal skills, teamwork, and problem solving skills.
This unit pairs with his current FM unit at school. The pen can be passed among classmates as a microphone during spontaneous conversations in class. It can be placed on the lunch table near his peers so that pragmatic language amongst peers can be effective. This unit needs to be one that is free to travel with Sam at all times so that he can freely participate in recreational, community, social, cultural and family activities where he will need to access sound. The Roger Pen can also serve as a back up for when the Educational FM unit has technical issues.
