As an ASHA certified Speech Language Pathologist, I have devoted my professional life as an SLP and educator to teaching students how to become independent communicators and thinkers. I strongly believe every child has the capacity to learn and I have discovered, over my 16+ year career, that children learn best through experience. I am the author of Speech Language Neighborhood.com, a website, on which I review current iPad apps for their therapeutic value and provide ideas on how to best use them during therapy sessions.
My teaching style is as varied as my students themselves, but in general if I can get a child to laugh and have fun, they will be much more likely to remember what was taught. All speech therapy sessions should be enjoyable and educational! Learning without actually knowing that you are learning is often the most effective way of reaching a student.
