About Me

I have been working as a speech pathologist since 1990.  Over this time I have accumulated a lot of resources across three different websites – BusyBugKits, SpeechBookShelf and BabyChatter.  This website is an amalgamation of this work.  I hope it helps you when you are working with your little clients!

I have been working as a speech pathologist in early intervention for over 30 years. I work with toddlers and preschoolers but have recently found a passion for literacy intervention. I’m a bit camera shy so you won’t find many pictures of me on Instagram. I enjoy making resources for my clients and share these on my website. I hope it helps you when you are working with your little clients! I have recently discovered Mini Objects. They make therapy more fun! You can find them in my Shop. Read More
