Welcome, Gillian!

Come see what the Buzzzzz is all about at this year's The Baby Buzz in Middleburg. This is a FREE educational seminar for expectant parents and parents of young children.

Has your child mastered a sound, like /r/, in words and phrases in speech therapy, but struggled to use it in conversation? A lot of children can make sounds beautifully in speech therapy but aren't quite as good at monitoring their own speech when they are moving throughout their day.

At @Little Hands Pediatric Therapy, our SLPs have a little secret… we call these our Reminder Bracelets! They are a simple but effective way to help remind children to use their good speech sounds. Just wear it... and remember your good, clear speech sounds!

Baby's First Year Milestones: Promote and Celebrate Your Baby's Development with Monthly Games and Activities

I was given a draft of this book to read and provide feedback on earlier this summer. I was thrilled to receive a copy of it in the mail and plan to share it with many of the families that I work with!

"Baby’s First Year Milestones is an excellent month-by-month guide on how to play with your infant! Aubrey does a beautiful job of emphasizing the importance of talking to your baby to develop their cognitive and language skills, helping them to learn through everyday routines. Filled with simple activities that you can do and make with items you already have at home, it is easy to read and reference for new ideas each month!"―Kelli Atangan, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech Language Pathologist and mom of three"

Making your own popsicles isn't just healthy, it can be a fun way to work on a variety of skills!

Speech: Sequencing the steps to make popsicles (get fruit, put in blender, add water, blend, pour into molds, place in freezer).

Have a target sound (for example, /L/) your child is working on articulating? Focus on that sound as you make popsicles: BLend, BLueberries, watermeLon, Liquid, moLds, etc.

Feeding & Sensory - peeling, cutting, chopping, touching/smelling/licking foods as you put them in the blender, tasting the liquid before freezing.

Taking your child to the pool this summer? 🏊🏽💦The LHPT therapists have some tips to make your trip enjoyable! 💕😊


✅ For a child with tactile sensitivity, work your way in. Start in the baby pool or shallow end. Bring a cup and encourage your child to pour water on their feet, then legs, belly, and arms. Allow them time to work their way into the water.
✅ For a child who has difficulty transitioning to the pool, bring 1-2 favorite waterproof toys from home to play with in the water.
✅ Never splash at or dunk your child underwater unexpectedly. Children who are sensory sensitive need to gradually desensitize themselves to the new feel, look, and sounds of the pool.
✅ Songs help children get excited about swimming. Try “If You’re Happy and You Know It …. blow some bubbles, kick your feet, splash your shoulders" etc. If your child likes to spin, hold them under the arms or in a hug and spin slowly at first, and then faster to the song “motorboat, motorboat, go so slow…. motorboat, motorboat, go so fast…. motorboat, motorboat, step on the gas!”

Wishing all our family and friends a happy and safe Independence Day! 🇺🇸
Some LHPT families are planning ahead for the over stimulating noise of the fireworks celebration. To escape the noise, head down to the basement with a dozen red, white and blue balloons for a festive evening! Play games, decorate the balloons, or fill deflated balloons with different textures like rice, beans, and sand. #Happy4th #4thofJuly #LHPT #Happy4thforEveryone #sensoryfriendly

There is a difference between school-based Speech Therapy and private services. If a school district reports that a child does not qualify for services that does not mean they would not benefit from Speech Therapy or that they won’t qualify in the future. Many schools don't consider articulation errors such as R and TH to be educationally based, as well as picky eating. Private Speech Therapy provides a whole-child approach focusing on just your child and working on all areas of speech issues while school services will address only areas for the educational need.

This is a great opportunity to strengthen Speech and Occupational Therapy skills! Simply fill a plastic pencil box with small items and try these two fun exercises:
💬SPEECH: Play Guess What?! Have your children describe the new items to you and you guess what they are. Then classify them by color, shape and use - the conversation is endless!
🖍OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY: Fill the box with Sensory items that move, like a squishy finger trap, Jacob's Ladder, fidgets or a tangle. Also, these boxes are great to bring along to those many dinners out.
