Welcome to my speech-language therapy blog! If you are a parent or caregiver, you’re in the right place. If you are a speech-language pathologist, awesome. If you’re just curious, hope you find something you like. So, a bit about me. I am a school-based speech-language pathologist, wife, mother, and lifelong southeast KY resident. I’m a very random thinker and conversationalist (I could probably diagnose myself with a social language disorder, no joke), so I’m going to keep this bio and future posts as genuinely me as possible, because that’s how the good Lord above made me :). I live on a farm surrounded by a various array of livestock that does not belong to me, but I get the pleasure of enjoying. I love using all the teachable moments for my children that farm life has to offer.
I don’t care much for small talk and prefer to talk and philosiphize (Yeah, it’s a word! I looked it up.) about the deep inner workings of the world and the minds that inhabit it.
I created this blog for various reasons. First and foremost, I love to educate and help others, particularly all things speech and language related. I have the desire to reach more people in this endeavor and aside from becoming a speech-language missionary, this was my next best option. My hope is that parents and caregivers find my suggestions helpful and other SLPs find my posts relatable. I also use this blog as a means to arrive at conclusions regarding speech and language challenges; I’ve found that if I talk through my challenges with someone else (if you’re ever caught in this situation with me, you’re actually supposed to just sit there and nod occasionally) or journal them, I’m more successful at finding solutions.
So folks, I hope you keep coming back so we can get to know and help each other!
