I had to share because this is INCREDIBLE! (Sound on- it’s only 10 seconds) Our speech therapist worked with us on mimicking vowels which would be appropriate for a hearing baby her age. I don’t know about you and I am pretty sure I am not crazy but she mimicked me PERFECTLY! Two times in a row and I managed to get one on video. Big proud moment for us over here! Looks like we have another songbird in the fam!#charlyshearingjourney#deaf#deafkidsrock#darlingcharly#speechtherapy#hearingaids#phonak @phonak
Spearmint and lavender are the oils of open speech and communication. These two oils are very supportive to those who have trouble communicating clearly, verbalizing their thoughts and feelings, or getting the words out. ☺️
These oils can be diffused or applied topically for their benefits. The back of the neck and the chest are great places for topical application! 😊
Lavender is especially good to use if you are going to be having an important discussion and you need to be sure and communicate clearly. It is also great to use before public speaking! 👍
Spearmint is especially good for kids who may have trouble verbalizing, or for anyone who has mechanical speech issues. Diffuse on a regular basis for long term improvement! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

We are so thrilled to share with you the launch of a new responsive website for a wonderful client in Alberta. When the owner of Maple Leaf Speech Language Services contacted me, she called me because she really liked the website we built for @speechco and she was looking to have a similar professional online presence. They are a new business and after I gave her my proposal she called back that she would really like to work with us, but we are out of her budget. And we talked. I learned more about her and while I don’t like to undercut myself, I also know what it means to start your own business. So we found a middle ground and we began the process with a logo design and then the website. Today, with the launch 🚀 of this website we made a dream a reality, and with happy tears a new chapter started in this individual’s life. I’m so happy and humbled that I could be part of this moment in her life. Wishing her great success while she will empower and change kids and adults lives by helping them communicate better.

My Christmas tree and Jude Law 😍 make making materials even more enjoyable.
Like... why I gotta say it 12 times tho? 🤯🙄😏
The importance of mealtime being a social activity cannot be stressed enough. A baby is never too young to be near the family during a meal.
Ever heard of mirror motor neurons? A baby watching a family member eat their food is literally learning how to eat. I mean- they'll imitate someone doing just about anything- and with early exposure- will do the same with feeding.
There's also the added bonus of a sense of security during a meal, especially when a caregiver is nearby. Think about it- from birth a baby needs to be held to be fed, as a beginner feeder, they're used to the caregiver being close enough to watch them and encourage them, and as a toddler, their need for security doesn't end there with their independence in other areas.
Parents are busy, we've got at least 64 more things we could be doing- but I promise you're probably thing number 2 on the babies list (right after food being number 1 during a meal)- don't let them down.

Congratulations to this nugget! He graduated from speech with flying colors🎓 Hard work and dedication really does pay off!
Sorry for the #socialdetective overkill but it’s the topic I’m currently working on. Love these manipulatives for younger students who need things to be concrete, visual and tactile. They make great visual prompts and those squishies keep little hands busy. I also love to use them to ask kiddos which tool they used to pick up on a clue (👀👂🏻❤️🧠). I got most of these from @officeplayground years ago. #socialthinking
Preschoolers are so motivated to learn and participate when things are presented as a game, or a challenge. This little one loves when I hide pictures of things with his target sound because he loves being able to find them. For added texture I added some dry colored pasta noodles to rice.
Remember that one time it randomly snowed in Houston? Well we are still on a snow kick and finally made some “insta-snow”! My daughter also came up with quite the elaborate story about: Belle sleeping in the snow, Elsa digging a hole, Poppy dancing along the edges of the box, and the dinosaur was in time out. 😂🤷🏼♀️ Regardless how weird, it was still a great Language building activity!
My love and adoration for ugly Christmas sweaters spills over into therapy, too! We made these today and you can target so many things-- following directions, spatial concepts, size concepts, requesting, describing, carrier phrases for fluency or apraxia, and more! #slpeeps#ashaigers#christmastx
