You know how people say, "Time flies when you're having fun"? Well, it also flies when you're back-to-back with kiddos, wrapping up end of the school year paperwork, trying to finalize outstanding AAC funding reports, and spreading some good SLP cheer for BHSM.
This month seriously FLEW by! Luckily, I was able to take some time to do some parent education and bring awareness to the field of Speech-Language Pathology.
My friends at Belly Love in Margate, FL, had a wonderful "Mom's Night Out" event and invited me to come by and discuss speech and language development with new moms and mommies-to-be. Check out their amazing spa services at www.bellylovespa.com :)
I truly think Target's dollar section has the best finds! I found small tubes of bubbles and tiny flashlights as giveaway items. (I always have a hard time holding back when I see so many GREAT therapy materials... sorry bank account). I also raffled off a big basket filled with activities that promote speech and language at home. ASHA has great brochures available that explain speech, language, and hearing milestones. I provide these often to parents just as a general resource to keep on hand. It was a wonderful event :). Thanks to Belly Love for having me!
