Communication for all
Welcome to Communication Community! We are so glad you are here. As licensed speech-language pathologists, we wanted to create an inclusive site containing resources that caregivers, educators, and related service providers alike can utilize to strengthen their communicative connections and developmental understanding towards the individuals they care for every day.
The goal of Communication Community is to demonstrate that communication is for all - no matter one’s age, abilities, or speech and language skills. By sharing our professional knowledge through related articles and resources, our goal is to build a community. A community that provides tools help to increase parent-child interactions, that also strengthens the interpersonal and linguistic connection between generations. A community that encourages and teaches natural opportunities for language growth and expansion. A community that generates more conversation surrounding alternative forms of communication and those working with/caregiving for individuals with special needs.
We hope that Communication Community provides valuable information for you. We always want to hear from you. Reach out to Becca and Kristi at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I’m Becca! I am currently living in Denver but my home place is coastal Massachusetts. I work primarily with adults using augmentative and alternative communication but I have experience in schools and hospitals as well. I believe that communication is for everyone, and that doesn’t always mean talking. When I’m not at work you can find me enjoying the sunshine in Colorado whether I am hiking, skiing, or sitting on a patio!
Hi there! My name is Kristi. Recently, I made the move from New York City back to my home state of Florida. For the past several years, I spent most of my professional time working for programs treating pediatric and young adult populations with autism spectrum disorders. I now have dual professional licensure in New York and Florida and have been enjoying teletherapy services. I love to be outdoors, whether it is kayaking or going for long walks with my pup!
HOW DID THEY MEET?
Kristi moved from Florida to Massachusetts, where she attended graduate school and met Becca. The two became fast friends and have remained close pals and collaborators ever since!
