I’m so glad you found my blog: Speech2u.com. I started this blog as a way to explore and share treatment ideas and philosophies with my fellow speech language pathologists. Parents are welcome to read this blog, but please note-none of the information that is shared here would replace services of a speech language pathologist.
“If they could they would”
I want every child that I work with to be successful in communicating with their loved ones. Establishing rapport and motivating my clients is the first step in making that happen. Once therapeutic true has been established, it’s so much easier to help children progress in their speech and language skills.
I have a passion for incorporating play, movement and functional activities into my therapy sessions. Sometimes, I get a little weird. You’ll like this blog if you tend to be a little silly, like to shake things up in your speech room, and have a passion for your profession.
