Super Power Speech is a blog to emPOWER speech pathologists and educators with ideas, materials, and inspiration in their professional and personal lives.
I began Super Power Speech in 2008 as a blog to connect with parents and speech pathologists. Super Power Speech is one of the longest running blogs for speech pathologists in the world. Here you’ll find hundreds of posts of speech ideas and inspiration. I have also developed popular materials for speech pathologists and educators in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
In the fall of 2018, I began a 2.5-year clinical doctorate degree through Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. My research is focused on AAC and early literacy skills. Many of my posts since that fateful decision have focused on these important areas.
My goals for this blog include:
- To educate speech pathologists on current therapy topics.
- To make the lives of educators easier by creating high-quality materials to use in the classroom.
- To provide easy to follow lesson plans to help speech pathologists with organization.
- To engage other book lovers in fun and meaningful book discussions.
- To track my journey through this decade of life.
I’ve been featured in the ASHA Leader both as “In the Limelight” and in the multiple times Blog Jam. I was also nominated as Best Individual Blog in the 2013 Edublog awards.

About the author:
I am a licensed speech-language pathologist and have been working as an SLP since 2001. After graduating with my masters degree in Rhode Island, my husband and I moved to the Pacific Northwest. I spent a year interning in an AAC and child development clinic. After this amazing experience, I have worked in the public school setting, pediatric rehab, and private practice.
I began blogging when my children were young as a way of connecting with parents and professionals. At that time, there were no other speech blogs. I spent my initial years reaching out to those who wanted information about how to help their children and find resources.
In addition to working full time as a speech pathologist and blogger, I create materials to help speech pathologists and educators and sell them on TpT. I spend what little free time I have left sleeping, reading, and running (in that order). My friends think I have super powers to get it all done.
