Christmas is just around the corner. This is also the time of year that I get the question, "What would you recommend for my child?" As an SLP, I am ALWAYS going to recommend engaging, NON-TECHNOLOGY based toys and games...ALWAYS! Parents are so wrapped up in IPads, tablets and all the apps that go with… Continue reading Dear Santa, Please Bring Me What My SLP Recommends! Part 1 Board Games
With Halloween just around the corner, it is a perfect time for a bat theme in speech therapy! I had a bat theme last week which ended up being a big hit...especially these two crafts!

We've all seen the beautiful blogs posts about picture prefect therapy sessions go for that one speech therapist. Let's be honest...not all speech therapy sessions are smooth and picture perfect. You may see 6 kids in a mixed group in which you need to address everything from articulation to grammar in 30 minutes. Maybe you… Continue reading Quick Drill Boxes in Speech Therapy
The girls continued the girly theme in speech therapy. This week was all about purple, cakes and painting!

Those same… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Pinkalicious

I have made it a goal to read more this year. While most of my books have been business or social media books, I ordered one in April that was great for the SLP! The book is "El Deafo" and the story is adorable! It is definitely a "must read" for any SLP treating hearing… Continue reading Book Review by an SLP: “El Deafo”

But this month, I am actually going to work on something I have been wanting to… Continue reading The SLP, April and a Podcast!
This week in speech therapy, our theme was dinosaurs. The past few years I have done the same craft. (You can find it here.) But this year, I wanted to do something a little different. I try to change up the craft year to year to keep things fresh. Speech therapy ROCKED this week with… Continue reading Prehistoric Speech Therapy: A Dinosaur Craft
This month I am continuing my SLP social media boost challenge by learning about two channels-Twitter and LinkedIn. To be honest, I have no clue about either one! If you follow me on either, you will probably notice that I am completely incompetent with Twitter and LinkedIn. If I share anything on Twitter, it is… Continue reading The SLP, March, Twitter and LinkedIn
