How do I account for only writing two posts in the last two years? The main reason is little Sawyer (our red-headed tornado) in combination with our 4-year old Princess, Sophie and 7-year old Jedi Warrior, Sam and well, it became the perfect storm and I was a bit overwhelmed.
Now that Sawyer is two, I finally feel like I am getting a handle on things. It is usually a sticky handle but I take what I can get! I have resolved to turn a blind eye to the occasional scribble on the walls and the cheerios on the floor to give myself a few minutes with my blog.
So what’s on the agenda for Mommy Speech Therapy in the near future? I look forward to completing posts on teaching the sounds that I have not yet blogged about, and putting up a lot more speech worksheets for sounds, sentences and stories to download. On that note, I am excited about the new sentences and stories I have posted on the Worksheets page for each sound. It is my hope that they will be used to help move targeted sounds from word cards to conversation. I’ll be writing more on that later.
You can look forward to posts on the process of articulation therapy, as well as how to teach the /p/, /b/, /f/, and /v/ sounds in the next few weeks. Of course I’ll share my triumphs and struggles when teaching the sounds to my clients, and my own kids.
Oh, and one other thing… you may have noticed the new site design! I’m lucky enough to have my fabulous graphic designer husband at my disposal and we’ve both been working like crazy to get Mommy Speech Therapy updated and rolling again. With that said, I’m excited to continue sharing my thoughts about speech therapy with you and hope for a wonderful remainder of 2010!
