Last night was the first night of summer concerts (Ludacris and Janet Jackson)! I definitely brought my earplugs! I could still hear everything clearly, they just took the edge off!

Here is some information about avoiding noise-induced hearing loss. If you or your kids use earbuds, you should know the 60-60 rule to protect your hearing for the long term!

What do SLPs do?

SLPs (Speech-Language Pathologists) are trained to treat a wide range of communication disorders and difficulties related to speech, language, voice, and swallowing. Some of the conditions that SLPs can treat include:

1. Articulation disorders: difficulty producing sounds or saying words correctly.

2. Language disorders: difficulty with language comprehension or expression, such as trouble understanding or using words or sentences.

3. Voice disorders: problems with the voice, such as hoarseness, vocal nodules, or vocal cord paralysis.

4. Fluency disorders: difficulty with fluency or rhythm of speech, such as stuttering.

5. Cognitive-communication disorders: difficulty with thinking, memory, problem-solving, and communication skills, often seen in people with brain injuries or neurological disorders.

6. Swallowing disorders: difficulty with swallowing or eating, such as dysphagia.

SLPs may work with people of all ages, from infants with feeding disorders, to children with language delays, to adults with communication or swallowing difficulties due to stroke or other medical conditions.


BSHM- May 4th part 1


BSHM -Day 2:
According to the Bureau of Labor & Statistics, there are 162,760
speech-language pathologists in the US.


Local parents, we urge you to contact the LCPS School Board to share your opinions about reducing the district's number of speech-language pathologists.

There is a discussion about bringing LCPS caseloads to the VA Department of Education maximum of 68 children per SLP.

How can one staff member simultaneously:
-provide 60-70 hours of direct therapy each week
-be a member of 68 IEP teams
-be an evaluator for 10-20 students going through eligibility?

Time to Talk turns 8 today!

We got to celebrate by visiting the White House!

A little while back, I'd written to the president. I thanked him for sharing his own experiences with stuttering.

While 1% or about 3 million Americans stutter, my students are often the only ones at their schools facing that challenge. Being able to tell them that stuttering doesn't define their worth or their opportunities became a lot more believable when they learned that the president is a person who stutters.

Well...a few weeks ago, I got a call from the White House. I was invited to talk to the president about my letter!

It was an unbelievable experience and an incredible gift to be able to share the president's personal encouragement with my therapy kids!

The CDC guidelines for developmental milestones have been revamped, but most experienced SLPs will not use them. The new criteria they use is questionable (i.e., they are focusing on when the majority of children develop the skill vs. when the average child develops the skill). What this means- if you’re waiting for these milestones at these ages, your child will already be behind the majority of their peers.

We know you've been wanting to talk about the updated CDC milestones! ⁠

So we dug in to see what we could find, and are sharing it with you for FREE:


Read to see what makes sense, where things get dicey, how these compare to measures like the MCDI and the ASQ (spoiler alert: they don't), and what the implications of these changes are.⁠

(Members: The rest of this month's reviews will be published later this week!)⁠


Ready for a pancake breakfast with Santa at the firehouse tomorrow morning! Come see us!

A great talk about a balanced approach to screentime between an early intervention SLP and an adolescent SLP.


Today is International Stuttering Awareness Day!

Shout out to all my superstar clients who work so hard. These students are like sponges- soaking up everything I can teach them and asking great questions. They are my deep thinkers. I love working with them!

ASHA Digital Toolkit: Stuttering 101 10/20/2020

ASHA Digital Toolkit: Stuttering 101 More than 70 million people worldwide stutter. Yet, myths about the speech disorder are common. Use these videos and graphics to help educate the public about stuttering.

Stuttering should never be taken as a sign of cognitive decline or reduced intellectual capability. This can’t be stated enough as stuttering continues to have a prominent public focus, most recently during a conversation on CNN’s State of the Union this past Sunday.

Fact check: Stuttering is a way of speaking—nothing more and nothing less—for almost 70 million people worldwide.

Beyond misrepresenting telltale signs of stuttering as cognitive decline, expressing pity for someone who stutters is also hurtful and harmful. A long body of scientific evidence shows stuttering has no impact on a person’s intelligence—and people who stutter can and do lead full and accomplished lives.

Together, let us use this year’s International Stuttering Awareness Day (October 22) to promote understanding of stuttering and respect for people who stutter—and to combat misinformation and mistreatment that is all too common.
