Hey There, Friends!
I want to thank you for coming to visit my website. I have always wanted to share my ideas, tips & tricks, and resources for Speech Language Pathology. I finally took the leap in the spring of 2020.
I’ve been a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) since 2005. I’ve worked in a variety of settings, but most of my experience has been working with young children in preschool and clinical settings.
I am a strength-based SLP with additional training and education in Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, & ADHD.
I am a Mom to 4 wonderful children. Our whole household is neurodiverse: ADHD, Autism, Gifted, and more! This gives me the unique perspective of both sides of the therapy table. As the parent of neurodiverse children, I am familiar and empathetic with the challenges many families face. It can be overwhelming to parent a child with any type of delay. Have experienced this working with children both as an SLP and as a Mom, I truly understand the challenges. I love working with families towards their goals.
What I Offer
I offer blog posts with ideas for both professionals and parents. This information may change over time, as I obtain ongoing education and as the world develops and changes (example: the neurodiversity movement and change from Autism Awareness to Autism Acceptance). I also offer consultations and lectures for groups or classes. You can send me a direct request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pop over to instagram to peek inside my day to day life both at home and at work.
Please keep in mind that tips, suggestions, and techniques shared on this blog are designed with parents, teachers, and therapists in mind. The information is presented at a basic level so that parents can implement strategies at home. This is meant to support what children with developmental disorders or other ongoing needs are learning in therapy with a qualified provider. The information on this site is not meant to replace the expertise of professionals working directly with children.
