I came across the website Consonantly Speaking and wanted to share this wonderful resource with all of my blog readers. "It is called "Consonantly Speaking" because as speech-language pathologists we are constantly speaking, whether in therapy or at home, and we are teaching about/using consonants."
I always enjoy reading how individuals got started in the field of Speech Language Pathology, so be sure to view the About page on this website. After reading the About page it was evident just how passionate the writer behind this blog is about the field of Speech Language Pathology.
Below are a few of the links and resources within Consonantly Speaking that I think are great tools to add to your resource box:
The Home page provides all of the latest posts and information that can be easily viewed
