Hello! My name is Beata and I am the founder of Bluebird Speech.
I live in Austin, Texas in a little bungalow with my partner Nick and dog Bruce.
I fell in love with speech therapy in 2007 and worked obsessively through my twenties to get a degree in Communication Disorders. I worked in the technology industry for a short time, before realizing that the realities of corporate America weren’t for me. Now I use those tech skills to create interactive materials for teletherapy and distance learning.
Bluebird Speech is devoted to creating more usable materials for SLPs. I design minimalist digital speech materials for aesthetically, environmentally, and socially conscious SLPs and teach them how to enhance their therapy with simple tips.
I am passionate about encouraging more SLPs to declutter their speech rooms and make or buy materials that bring them joy.
Literature-based intervention targeting higher-level language concepts that transfer across languages and cultures. Desensitization approach to fluency therapy for kids who stutter.
