How did Queen's Speech come about? 

I started this blog in December 2012 because I wanted to share my crafty ideas related to Speech-Language Pathology.  I quickly found that I enjoyed this big community of SLP bloggers. So often we get stuck on our "Speech Island" and don't share all our great ideas!

 I posted my Objective Binder in January 2013 just to share pictures of my room and a reader suggested I sell it. Thus my TpT store was born! Shortly thereafter I joined the Facebook world!

I do this because I enjoy it and want to share my ideas with you! I also find that it helps me stay motivated and up to date in my therapy.

Like my ideas? If you share you must ALWAYS give attribution to this site, as http://www.queenspeechtherapy.com and it’s author, Rachel Nortz, M.A., CCC-SLP.
