Practical Gifts for the Traveling Speech Pathologist

I have been a traveling speech pathologist for 10 years now. That doesn't even include the time I spent working in the school system and traveling between schools. Out of my seven years of being a school based SLP, 6 of those years had me dragging materials between at least 2 campuses. To say I… Continue reading Practical Gifts for the Traveling Speech Pathologist

An Alternative to “Elf on the Shelf” for the Traveling SLP

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!

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

Speech Therapy Theme Review: Pinkalicious

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

Book Review by an SLP: “El Deafo”

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”
