Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) Linky Party

Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM) is coming to a close. Originally I had planned on doing weekly linky parties, but wedding planning has gotten in the way. So, I am holding a 2-day linky party where speech-language pathology and audiology bloggers/material creators/businesses can link up to show what they have done for BHSM! I would love to see posts about what BHSM means to you, any materials (paid or free) that you have created for BHSM to spread the word, any blog posts showing swag you have worn to promote BHSM, etc! The only rules are it has to be related to you or your business/practice/blog as an SLP or AUD and you must provide the direct link to your post/video. NO LINKING TO PRODUCTS/MATERIALS DIRECTLY - YOU MUST HAVE A POST ABOUT THE PRODUCT/MATERIAL AND WHY IT RELATES TO BHSM (not just any product/material; must be BHSM related)! Anything that does not follow these three rules will be deleted. This can be a post about something you did this year, or a post from a previous year!

Here is the image that you can use to show that you linked up to my party! I would love it if you could please link it back to this blog post (not my blog directly but this specific blog post)!

Thanks for participating! I hope that those who are reading get a lot of information, inspiration, and content to use next year from this Linky Party!

Happy to be an SLP Blog Hop

Happy to be an SLP Blog Hop image
It is Better Hearing and Speech Month, so many of us SLP bloggers decided that we would celebrate with a blog hop! We wanted to share information about the profession, tips for SLPs/teachers/parents, and why we love being SLPs! I cannot wait to see what each of my blogging friends end up discussing related to the field. Personally, I am discussing the topic of cluttering. It is my favorite speech and language disorder to treat and I even made a YouTube video about it! Speaking of YouTube videos, there is a great one that The Dabbling Speechie and her husband edited together with clips of many of us SLP bloggers showing how happy we are to be SLPs! Finally, we wanted to give back to the SLP community with a giveaway including products from Social Thinking, Smarty Ears, and TpT gift certificates! To learn more about cluttering, follow our blog hop, and to enter the giveaway, continue reading!

An Incredible SLP Blogger Searching For a Cure for JA and Your Chance to Give Back

An Incredible SLP Blogger Searching For a Cure for JA and Your Chance to Give Back image
About two weeks ago, I posted about a way to help a generous application developer. This time around, I'm promoting one of our own - Katie Yeh, the SLP blogger from Playing With Words, has a daughter who has Juvenile Arthritis. She is only five years old and has this life-long, chronic auto immune disorder. This attacks her joints which causes her pain. Katie is participating in the annual Walk to Cure Arthritis in honor of her daughter and is raising money for the Arthritis Foundation. You can learn more about Katie's daughter's journey by clicking here. Katie writes blog posts consistently helping families learn about and activities to help speech and language development. Now we have the opportunity to give back for all that she does.



So how can you help? Many speech-language pathologists, including myself, have donated products to be placed into two bundles where 100% of the proceeds would go to the Arthritis Foundation. Each bundle of downloadable, printable activities, worksheets, and presentations is $20. There are 26 items in each bundle! Between the two bundles, you can get $125 worth of materials! Another way to donate is to purchase Katie Yeh's "How to Help Your Child Talk: The eBook" product. This downloadable book is 50 pages long and includes handouts for parents and SLPs. Personally, I found it valueable to purchase both bundles and her eBook because not only am I helping donate to a great cause, but I get quality materials to use with my students and parents. The walk is this weekend, but I believe the bundles will be up through most of May.

To see what is inside each of the bundles or purchase them, click the image below:

SLP May Facebook Frenzy

SLP May Facebook Frenzy image
I have participated in blog hops, created giveaways, tried to pin-it-to-win-it, and more; but this is my first Facebook Frenzy! If you haven't heard of a Facebook Frenzy, don't worry; I hadn't until last winter. Let me walk you through what a Facebook Frenzy is so that you can get free, downloadable materials from your favorite speech-language pathologist bloggers and TpT stores!

A Facebook Frenzy is similar to a blog hop. Instead of moving from blog to blog in a circle, you move from Facebook page to Facebook page in a circle! The only catch is that in order to receive the free material, you must "Like"/"Follow" the Facebook page to access the material. This allows for you to discover and follow new speech-language pathology blogs and TpT stores which you might find interesting, as well as show your thanks by supporting their page by liking it! To find out all 20 participants and how to access the free materials they created, continue reading!
