Early social skills for the win – Research Rumination

A few years ago, I was listening to the radio on my commute. I used to live in California, so my commute to anywhere was very long. As I listened, a segment I realized that they must have been speaking directly to me. The segment titled “Nice Kids Finish First: Study Finds Social Skills Can Predict Future Success” went on to summarize a recent study (then, in 2015). That story stuck with me, and when I thought about what article to study for this week’s Research Rumination, it came back to me.

Alzheimer’s and the Speech-Language Pathologist – Research Rumination

I have a deep passion for Alzheimer’s research and understanding best practices for treating individuals with this disease.

Speech-language pathologist? So…what do you do?

For the past few weeks, I’ve been waffling on what topic to write my first blog post. I had lots of ideas (some forthcoming, don’t worry!).

He replied, “Yes, of course I do. You help kids speak better.”
