“Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained, and delighted.” (Dr. Suess) Well, the good doctor said it all. This is why, at @allaboutspeechlanguage we make therapy fun so kids want to participate! Check out this Dr. Seuss hat one of our kidos made during OT with Mrs. Jen!

If you’re getting in your last few trips to the beach you can make it some fun learning time! For your kindergartners, write letters, numbers and draw shapes in the sand. All kids benefit when you talk about all of the things you see (sand, water, wave, crab, towel, etc.) describe how things feel (rough, soft, wet, cold etc.), sound (whoosh, chirp, etc.), look and smell. Your kids will be expanding their vocabulary and taking on this school year like it’s a breeze! #backtoschool#speechtips#speechtherapy#toddlertalk

New school year, new mindset! It can be so easy to stuck in our old ways, but when we open our minds if really helps with collaboration and communication. Opportunities open up, friendships are made, walls are broken down. So, hold your head up high and let those creative juices flow in that open mind of yours! 😊
What contingency plan are you wasting time on instead of going after your Plan A?
I get it. You're scared.
This contingency plan is safe. You already know how to do it and you know it will continue to make you money.
Over the last few years I have talked to many SLPs who are focusing on the contingency plan instead of going after their dreams.
How do you know if you are focusing on your contingency plan? 👉🏽 You dread going to work every day BUT keep going because you need the check 👉🏽 You know that SLP may not longer be what you want to do as a 9-5 but are too afraid to take the leap to doing what you really want to do 👉🏽 You are settling for less money than you deserve but are too afraid to ask for a higher salary or look for a better paying job 👉🏽 You want to move to.another state to get a much better paying job BUT are finding every excuse not to do it 👉🏽 You want more out of life and your career but are settling for less, hoping that things will get better but not willing to do anything about it
I can help.
I am Natasha, the No Bullshit Life Coach. I am also a practicing SLP with almost 9 years of experience working in a variety of settings and graphic locations.
I have a coaching program for experienced Speech Language Pathologists who are ready to start owning their expertise and attracting more luctartive and fulfilling job opportunities with ease & flow.

Promote speech and language while playing with a water table. Kids love water tables. Tips to encourage Speech and language : allow your kids to bring a variety of items into the water table (spoons, cups, pails, toys). Sit/kneel and get to eye level with your child. Play along side them and use different vocabulary, take turns pouring , use big and small objects, encourage sensory play by adding sand instead of water, or rice. #speechandlanguagecanbefun#speechtherapy#languagelearning#kidsandsummer#summeractivities#slplife#ilovesummer
This morning we had the pleasure of showing the NSW Treasurer and Member for Hawkesbury, Dominic Perrottet, all that we do for the children and families at Speak About and the community.
It was great to chat about important issues affecting our children today, how we help and also the NDIS.
Thanks for coming out Dominic!

Improving communication with Adam is a daily objective. We will interact with him as much as possible everyday with every opportunity given. I have to say we have come a long way since.
Though our ways may not be text book, we have progressed and seen much improvements in communicating with our son. Not only that he understands more now but he is responding better to us. We can understand him better too. Working from home and being able to spend more time with Adam have been fruitful. Alhamdulillah.

Playdough monsters to go with the Monsters Love School book I shared yesterday! I always do these around Halloween, but they pair perfectly with this cute back-to-school book! I use the dough monsters for following directions, spatial concepts, size words, and as a reinforcer activity for artic!
👾 Size words: “Put 2 beads on the tall pipe cleaner” “Get 1 big eye and 2 little eyes”
👾 Spatial concepts: Put 2 beads under the eyes”
👾 Get an eye or a bead for each sound/word production
Playdough is my fave!
