Welcome to Heard In Speech!
I am in my fifth year as an SLP in the public schools system. Heard In Speech has been around since March 2012 as a way for me to create a virtual materials closet. I love making my own materials and I've been learning to share with others since at least the late '80s.
I have a pre-speech background that has given me some page layout and design knowledge and, as dorky as it is, I love using it to make activities. Most of my materials shared on here have been made on my Macbook Pro in Pages. I'm not perfect. I'm not a professional designer. I don't always write or speak in complete sentences. But I do put a lot of heart into everything I do. :]
The materials on the site are intended for use by speech-language pathologists. I, of course, welcome parents, but do not suggest that these handouts alone for treatment of speech & language disorders. I most definitely do not guarantee that these activities are a cure for any speech/language disorder, but everything I do, I've based on things I've learned from the best. If you feel your child has a communication disorder, please contact an SLP in your area for services.
Here is a directory by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association.
Finally, I just ask that you please only use my materials for educational purposes and not for making money. Please do not post my handouts as your own, etc. etc. etc. I put a lot of time, energy, love, and probably some tears into the projects - even when they seem simple. If you would like to write about something I've done, please feel free to send me an email. Remember, cite your sources! Enjoy and happy speeching!
