Because today, May 23, is "World Turtle Day," I thought this was the perfect time to officially introduce my blog, Chatterbox. Why, you ask, would a speech and language pathologist, who works with children on a variety of speech and language needs, want to introduce a blog on "World Turtle Day?"
It is simple.
Good speech and language therapy takes time. Speech and language therapy is not a race to see who changes the way they speak or communicate the fastest. Instead, therapy moves at a steady, individualized pace to ensure mastery and generalization of the targeted speech, language, and communication goals, just as a turtle moves at a steady, individualized pace to get from point A to point B.
So, stick your head out of your shell (get it....keeping with the turtle theme here!) and look to this blog for innovative insights into speech, language, communication, development, and more! Enjoy!
