I'm Sarah (she/her/hers) and I'm an SLP, creator, food enthusiast, binge watcher, adventurer, and dog mom.
As a speech-language pathologist I am most passionate about literacy-based therapy and connecting with my clients.
My background in child development and former career as a preschool teacher is at the heart of what I do as an SLP. I'm very passionate about connection over compliance and love providing a safe, flexible environment for children to learn in.
When I became an SLP I wanted therapy sessions to be fun (and not just for my students)! I fell in love with themed therapy, as did my students. Themed therapy provides consistency, integrates vocabulary across all sessions, saves time planning, and is where learning meets fun!
I created Speechie Adventures so that I could help SLP’s like you deliver engaging and meaningful therapy. I design, create, and share resources and activities that are motivating, time saving, and informed by research.
I am so glad that you are here!
