I began this blog in an attempt to help parents be able to best guide their children in the development of speech and language. I'd like to do this by providing some guidelines and activities to encourage development in this area. I additionally would like to provide parents with some reasurrance about when it's necessary and appropriate to seek a speech-language evaluation and when it's not.
If you have a child already in speech and langauge therapy, you might find some useful activities here that you can do at home with your child to help facilitate and maybe even expidite the therapy process.
I received my Masters Degree from California State University, Northridge in 1990 and have since workied in many settings including schools, clinics, private practices, hospitals, nursing homes and home health with both children (developmental & rehabilitative) and adults (rehabilitative). I currently live in Denver, Colorado with my 2 children.
