The Speech Therapy Blog
This speech therapy blog is your go-to location for parent support, speech therapy materials, assessment knowledge, and CEU opportunities. We have summarized research in digestible, usable bullets.
As we share our stories, we want you to be a part of the conversation. Speech-language pathology can be overwhelming at times. There is an intensity to serving children with needs and managing high administrative demands. And yet we love what we do. This blog, like many speech therapy blogs for SLPs is a respite from the hectic nature of our lives.
We are part of your village. SLPs, you change the world—one session at a time. Let’s get to work.
