When I came across this website for the first time I was delighted to find a resource that was well organized, interesting and the information is presented in a way that is easy to understand (user-friendly). It was easy to find information quickly and the topics are versatile as well as they provide information in a format where anyone can learn more about the various speech and language related topics.

An article was written in ADVANCE magazine in March of this year about
Sally Helton, MS CCC-SLP, she used the Speech Helpers to assist one of her client’s with a cleft palate. They were used to provide a model for the client to understand sound placement in the mouth.
This site was very interesting and fun to explore, in addition it is a significant contribution to the field of speech language pathology. You can follow Home Speech on Twitter and why not become a fan on Facebook too.
