A Day in the Life of This SLP: Appreciative

A Day in the Life of This SLP: Appreciative


It can be said that I have dedicated my professional life as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) to my friends who are challenged by understanding others and expressing themselves effectively or efficiently.

That is a simplification, but easily understood by those outside of the field of Speech-Language Pathology. 

My Gift

No matter if my friend is younger than two or older than 90, it seems that I am able to communicate with them.

Some parents or families akin my skill to a gift, some to being a communication whisperer, and some are simply grateful they found me.

My SLP Families

I am fully aware of the dedication and yes, sacrifices, parents and families demonstrate as they maneuver the maze of options for SLP services.

And, I am greatly appreciative to be the SLP who joins in the journey of trust, respect, and cooperation with my friends and their parents and families.

It is a fact that many families make initial contact with this Center but are unable to schedule due to a myriad of family life reasons.

The Doors Remain Open

I make it clear that this Center’s doors remain open.

Hence, months or even years may pass…

Then a phone call or email arrives, and an appointment is set.

This is the history of the family represented by this quote.

A family who has seen a wide range of professionals from coast to coast and within our community.

And then, finally this summer, we met…



The Power of Words

The power of this mom’s words are embedded in my mind, my heart, and my soul.

And today, I share her words with you.

An (extra) appreciative day in the life of This SLP,
