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
Therapy Ideas: Always one of my favorites, this is a great page that covers different innovative ideas. Visuals are provided of the therapy ideas along with how to incorporate each idea into the therapy session
Resources: Wow, this list is great, it is categorized by everything Speech Language Pathology Related and it is still growing.
Worksheets and Speech Apps are two other sections to view that have more activities and speech related apps.

The Speech Ladies provides a collaborative blog bringing a mother (Cindy) and daughter's (Kristina) creativity, insight, knowledge and resources all in one place. Their motto, "A mother-daughter duo of a seasoned SLP and an 'almost' SLP looking to share their experiences and insights in the world of speech and language pathology," provides a brief overview of their excitement to share resources with the Speech Language Pathology community.
The mother daughter duo update their blog on topics ranging from therapy materials (i.e. We All Scream For Icecream), latest updates in the field of Speech Language Pathology (Gabriel Giffords) and interesting tidbits of information (Book Club) related to the field.
When I first came across The Speech Ladies Blog, what stood out the most was the content that their blog provided and the collaboration of a mother and daughter who are both in the field of Speech Language Pathology providing their knowledge together.
