Presented by Tatyana Elleseff MA CCC-SLP
Bio: Tatyana Elleseff MA CCC-SLP is a bilingual speech-language pathologist, specializing in issues of multicultural, internationally & domestically adopted, as well as abused, at-risk, and traumatized children with language and literacy disorders in hospital, school, and private practice settings. She has been published in several peer-reviewed journals as well as presented for numerous medical, academic, and non-profit organizations and speech-language-hearing associations both nationally and internationally. She is a clinical instructor at the RWJ Medical School Dept. of Psychiatry and a Clinical Supervisor at Rutgers Day School, an outpatient facility located in a hospital setting for children with significant psychiatric disturbances and concomitant language and literacy impairments.
The 101-page instructional guide was created to address the students’ phonological awareness, spelling, reading, vocabulary, and syntax skills by having them engage with sounds, letters, and meanings of words. The lessons in the book can be used by a variety of instructional personnel (teachers, SLPs, reading specialists, etc.) and even parents as a stand-alone word study program or in conjunction with SPELL-Links to Reading & Writing Word Study Curriculum.
The activity book is divided into two sections. The first section offers K-12 student activities for large groups and classrooms. The second section has picture card activities and is intended for 1:1 and small group instruction. Both sections focus on reinforcing 14 SPELL-Links strategies for reading and spelling to stimulate the associations between sounds, letters, and meanings of words.

It’s early August, and that means that the start of a new school year is just around the corner. It also means that many newly graduated clinical fellows (as well as SLPs switching their settings) will begin their exciting yet slightly terrifying new jobs working for various school systems around the country. Since I was recently interviewing clinical fellows myself in my setting (an outpatient school located in a psychiatric hospital, run by a university), I decided to write this post in order to assist new graduates, and setting-switching professionals by describing what knowledge and skills are desirable to possess when working in the schools.

Those of you familiar with my blog, know that a number of my posts take on a form of extended responses to posts and comments on social media which deal with certain questionable speech pathology trends and ongoing issues (e.g., controversial diagnostic labels, questionable recommendations, non-evidence based practices, etc.). So, today, I’d like to talk about sweeping general recommendations as pertaining to literacy interventions. Continue reading But is this the Best Practice Recommendation?
