While I'm on the subject of being an SLP, I would like to take this opportunity to spotlight a couple of fellow bloggers who are also SLPs and who are doing some great things in their professional lives as well.
Grace, who authors the beautiful blog, Sense and Simplicity, is a fellow SLP who practices in her home country of Canada. I know several SLPs, particularly school based SLPs who have summers off, who spend their time traveling to less fortunate areas to donate their skills and services. You may have seen the button below hanging out the past few months on the top right corner of my blog. Grace is planning a trip to Bangladesh to volunteer her services as an SLP to help teach in a speech therapy program. She needs to raise some funds to help cover the cost of the trip. If you've read her blog, you know she's a wonderful photographer and she's selling some of her photos to help fund her trip. I hope you get a chance to visit her blog and help support her.
Lori, who authors the hilarious blog, In Pursuit of Martha Points, is also a fellow SLP who practices in California. She has recently started a new website that is a language development resource website for parents. I'm sure it will give you valuable information and resources for encouraging speech and language development in your children as well as answer questions you may have about what is typical and what may signal a concern. So, hop on over to Lori's blog for some fun (but I must warn you, don't drink anything while you read it unless you're prepared for a little clean up when you spew it from laughing so hard. I speak from experience.) Then, visit her new website!

Next post, we will return to our regular programming of vintage, industrial, antique,
cottage, chippy, rusted, junky stuff that I love.
