I am so very excited about this blog! I’ve been blogging over at Whatever’s In front of Me intermittently for some time, and I’ve just recently decided to start up my own speech blog (because that’s what the world needs…one more speech therapy blog, right?…well, that’s the idea anyway.)
So if you don’t frequently blog on ONE, why are you starting a second?
I have followers who I know are not speech/education folk, and to be frank I was starting to feel like I was boring them to death with speechy things, and no one wants to be the boring one! So I created this little corner of the web where I can talk about speech, post materials, etc. without hesitation. I’ll still be baking/life/friends/thoughts, but I’ll save the rest for here.
Let’s get the silly introduction things out of the way so we can get down to the good stuff!
I am 7 classes and 2 practicums away from being being a CFY and I absolutely can not wait. Don’t get me wrong, I love learning, but I am VERY ready to simply do what I love every day and not have to take tests or sit in class 5 days a week. I’m currently in “Summer session II” which simply means I only have 2 classes instead of 5. I love all kinds of things speech, but I have a real heart for pediatrics, and am very quickly growing my own materials room (which is currently a laundry and coat closet).
I’ve done ABA therapy since my junior year in undergrad, and while I don’t subscribe to all of the principles, I have learned a lot from it, and work with one low-verbal boy when I’m not in school or clinic.
Outside of speech, I love to read, craft, bake, drink coffee, spend time with my family and friends (the majority of which are 4 hours away in Northern Indiana…also known as the other side of the state!), watch movies, Pinterest until my heart’s content (which is where most of my materials/ideas stem from…and you know yours do, too!), volunteer with the children’s program at church, and live a “normal person life.”
I’m so glad you’ve stopped in, and I promise more exciting things, and pictures, are coming soon!
