CONGRATULATIONS to Ms. Petersen, SLP.
Ms. Petersen, SLP is our Vendor of the Month. We love our vendors and are so happy to be able to help support them in their product-making endeavors. It takes a lot of time, effort, creativity and sometimes money to create these amazing products for everyone to enjoy! This is one of the reasons why vendors greatly enjoy feedback. It makes a vendors day to hear what you think of their products!
Take some time to get to know this awesome SLP!
Where do you blog?
I blog at www.MsPetersenSLP.wordpress.com
Why did you get into blogging?
To connect with the parents of my students, mostly. I blog at the end of each unit I finish, which helps my parents to know what we are doing at school and follow up at home with books or activities.
What setting do you currently work in?
I work at two K-6 schools.
What is your favorite thing about being an SLP?
The endless variation! The cute things kids say and working with students who stutter.
What is the product that you consider your “MOST WANTED”?
My Stuttering Homework for the Whole Year is my go-to for stuttering homework. I couldn’t find stuttering homework anywhere, so I made some!
What is the favorite product you have made (if different than your most wanted)?
My Stuttering Chat Pack is my current favorite product. It has already sparked many great conversations about stuttering.
What words of advice would you give an SLP newbie?
Collaborate with other SLP’s as much as you can. Observe other SLP’s working, and invite them to observe you. Also, have strong boundaries between work and life. Leave work at work!
What is your “go-to” treatment technique?
Quick drill therapy for articulation has been a game changer for me. My artic students are flying through therapy!
If you weren’t an SLP what would you be?
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
Anywhere with a sunny beach and a cold adult beverage!
Wow! So great words of wisdom from this SLP. Keep up the great work Ms. Petersen, SLP. If you want to see other products that she has created head on over to her vendor store here.

- at least 5 products uploaded to your Speechtivities vendor store
- be an active blogger and/or contributor to the SLP field and
- be a maker of creative, functional and useful Speech Therapy products.
