“G’day” is just my favourite way to greet people in any language. So, g’day, I’m Rebecca, a 34 year old Speech Pathologist with metaphorically itchy feet who wears different crystals everyday to match my mood.
As a 20 something, I needed freedom, new languages and cultural immersion and ended up traveling, studying and working around the world as an SLP.
Now that I’ve hit my 30s and been around the therapy block, I know the type of SLP that I am. I’m honest. A little too honest for some people… but I tell it how it is. I’m hands-on and I like to WORK. KIDS. HARD. Why? You’ve worked with those children with low confidence and resilience, right?
Those kids burrow into my heart and make me think:
“How can I motivate them? Get them to practice more without it being a chore? How can I fuse creativity into my sessions and get them off my caseload ASAP?”
So I create.
Functional, flexible, year-round resources that encourage practice. Because I also forgot to mention that I’m a bossy taskmaster with passions. I simply LOVE speech sound disorders. Yep, I could look inside mouths, figure out phonological processes and try to facilitate new sounds all day. So if speech is causing you grief, check out my Instagram for some visual inspiration or my Teachers Pay Teachers store to see how merge the functional-flexible-year round bit into therapy.
See that box to the right that says “I want functional freebies” – well join me on this adventure, get access to my Freebie Library and let’s make this world a little smaller 🙂
Happy to hear from you – if it is a travel/working overseas question, jump on the SLPs Going Abroad Facebook group. It’s the most up to date place to get info (remember I’m now a 30 something with two little kids). My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
