It's that wonderful... scratch that. It's THAT time of year. Fellow SLP, you know what I'm talking about. The craziness of busy schedules, the chaos, the KIDS! Kids have a 6th sense when it comes to the holidays. Even if they can't read a calendar, they know! Many parents use "Elf on the Shelf" to… Continue reading An Alternative to “Elf on the Shelf” for the Traveling SLP
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
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
Finding ways to keep kids engaged and interested in speech therapy can be a tricky feat for even the most creative SLP. After you have spent countless hours on creating ridiculously fabulous lessons (Great job, by the way!), there will always be that one kid that is like "Meh." Or maybe you are the SLP… Continue reading “Light Up Language” in Speech Therapy
The girls continued the girly theme in speech therapy. This week was all about purple, cakes and painting! I love this book because it emphasizes to be your own person and don't be afraid to like what you like. We had an assortment of activities to address each girl's goals. (You can find all the activities… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Purplicious!
Speech therapy just got really girly! I absolutely love "Pinkalicious!" I love the conversations that this book stimulates. How many times were you told as a kid that would turn into the food you ate ALL THE TIME? I certainly remember hearing I was going to turn into a chicken nugget one day. Those same… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Pinkalicious
So, it's officially summer here in Texas. No, I don't wait for the actual "First Day Of Summer" on the calendar. It's summer in Texas when your thighs stick to your seats in your car. Cue the fun summer themes in speech therapy!! I found these adorable tin grills in the dollar spot of my… Continue reading Summer, Grilling and Speech Therapy
This month, I am taking on a challenge like no other: this SLP is going to produce a podcast! If you have been reading up on my monthly goals, you’ve noticed that it has been all social media improvements. 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 social media experiment has been an interesting one. When I set my goals for 2018, I really did not think I would learn much about how to market my business as an SLP. I thought I would learn about each channel and be able to just continue posting everything everywhere. That’s what that “share”… Continue reading The SLP, March, LinkedIn and Twitter: What I Learned
When I started in January working on a plan to better my social media accounts, I honestly had no idea what I was getting into. I just knew as an SLP in 2018 that if I wanted to improve my business, I had to learn how to “social media.” (Yes, I just turned that phrase… Continue reading Social Media, Content and the SLP
