Welcome to Building Better Speech and Language
I am a speech-language pathologist and I specialize in early intervention. I obtained my Masters degree from Penn State University and my Doctorate degree from Rocky Mountain University of Healthcare Professions. I have worked in a variety of settings but most of my experience is working with preschool aged children. I thought I knew so much about language development and development in general until I had my own children! I’m a proud mother of two wonderful boys and they help me develop new skills and new ways to approach language development in a functional and motivating way I would never have truly grasped without them.
I started this blog in an effort to support others while their little ones are growing and learning and also to support my fellow SLPs. I hope you find my posts helpful. My goal is to provide practical ideas and suggestions because I know first hand that setting out to do anything that isn’t functional or motivating for you and your children won’t give you the results or satisfaction we all hope to obtain while working with our little ones.
