Thank you for visiting Simply Speech!  The following is information isn’t necessarily the fun stuff, but it’s necessary. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me via email under the “Contact Me” heading at the top of the home page. 

I blog because I enjoy it. It’s a therapeutic outlet for me, and it keeps my creative juices flowing. Plus, it enables me to talk about one of my favorite subjects: Speech & Language Pathology! The information I write about is meant to share activities for Speech/Language Pathologists, SPED teachers, General Education classroom teachers, and parents to use in their therapy sessions, classrooms, or at home.  The information on this blog is not, in any way, meant to replace actualtherapy or an actual evaluation performed by an ACTUAL ASHA certified Speech & Language Pathologist or licensed teacher. If you are a parent or teacher who has concerns relating to speech and language development for a particular child or children, please seek out consultation and/or a comprehensive evaluation from an ASHA certified Speech & Language Pathologist. You can find local SLPs from ASHA’s website at www.asha.org. 

The therapy materials, activities, crafts, information, products, websites, and apps mentioned in the blog are to be used as tools in conjunction with speech therapy only. They are not intended to replace speech therapy and should not be used in lieu of speech therapy services. It is up to each professional to determine what therapy tools are applicable to the therapy process of each individual student/patient. In some cases, some therapy tools do not apply to that patient/student. Therefore, all content from my posts should be read and used at the discretion of the Speech & Language Pathologist. Parents and other caregivers should discuss with your child’s SLP which specific activities your child would benefit from at home. 

This is my personal blog. The opinions expressed here are my own and not those of my employer (former, current, or future) or of the university I attended.
