Join the Celebration! 2nd year Blogiversary!

Hey there. Thanks for taking the time to read the blog today and join in the fun! January 21st 2015 will mark the 2nd year since I wrote my first BSL Speech Language blog post and it has been a great experience writing articles for my readers! In August of 2012, I started reading SLP blogs and discovered Teacher's Pay Teachers (TPT) while I was working on my Education Specialist degree (Ed.S.) in curriculum and instruction. In December of 2012, I made it a professional goal for myself to start a blog to share my knowledge as a SLP and also to specially create speech-language therapy and language arts resources for others. I have made products for years to use with children on my caseload so when I learned about TPT, I thought it would be an ideal avenue to share new resources with others. To celebrate my blogiversary, I will have raffles of speech-language resources from my store and other bloggers as well! You'll have to read future posts for more details.

So what does BSL stand for? Building Successful Lives

I believe that speech-language pathologists and educators not only provide therapy and instruction for children, but teach them practical skills to be successful in life. Children learn self-confidence, how to communicate, how to problem solve, how to overcome challenges, how to get along with their peers, and so much more! 

Building Successful Lives Speech & Language Services has been a a vision of mine since I finished my Master's degree in Speech & Hearing Science from UNC Chapel Hill 10 years ago! I am committed to sharing best practices for speech-language therapy, special education, regular education curriculum/instruction as well providing exemplary pediatric speech-language therapy services. Literacy is also a passion of mine and I believe SLPs have the expertise to assist children with phonological/phonemic awareness, listening comprehension, and oral communication. 

My inspiration for Building Successful Lives Speech & Language Services is my mother, Dr. Jacqueline Anderson. She is a clinical psychologist and the Founder of Building Successful Lives, LLC. She has over 30 years combined experience as an educator, school psychologist, and clinical psychologist working with both children and adults.
