Happy National Speech-Language Pathologist Day, friends! 💚
Miss Susanne (to a friend wiggling in her chair): do you need to go to the bathroom?
Friend: no I just need to boogie.
[03/03/21] Austin Area Speech & Language Services will continue to follow CDC and Austin Public Health guidelines by requiring face masks and encouraging social distancing in our waiting area. We believe this is the best way to protect our therapists and clients from the ongoing pandemic. We also believe that by doing so, we hope to not contribute to another surge in Covid 19 cases in our area. Please contact your therapist if you have questions or concerns about our continued adherence to the wearing of masks.
[01/28/21] Austin Area Speech & Language would like to express our deep sadness upon the tragic passing of a beloved pediatrician, Dr. Lindley Dodson. Our mutual patients have always spoken so highly about her kindness, compassion and commitment to the many children she treated. Our hearts go out to Dr. Dodson's family, friends and especially her children. All remain in our hearts and prayers.

In a Zoom speech therapy meeting (client is blacked out) a friend played "happy birthday" on his cello for Ms. Susanne's dog Oliver's birthday. Ms. Susanne was wearing a special headgear for Friday. We are having great success doing speech online with the kids who are willing and able to participate.
I’m pretty sure this is how we’re going to feel when we can get back to the office and can see our wee friends in person.

As seen on a walk in Ms. Susanne’s neighborhood. If zero “ homeschooling” happens but everyone stays healthy, (mostly) kind to one another, engaged in some activity (making pancakes is both a math, science and self care lesson) then we consider this a success. There’s time to “catch up”( whatever that means) later. For now let’s be kind, patient and well.

A few ideas to keep wee ones busy and still growing their minds
In an effort to create a safer environment for our clients we are removing our fabulous toys and books from the waiting area. Although we’ve doubled down on wiping/cleaning them in recent weeks, it’s basically impossible to stay on top of it during this time. The continued good health of our clients and their families is our highest priority. Sorry kiddos.

Friend comes in wearing a Beatles t-shirt. Friend tells Miss Susanne that it’s the Beatles. They discuss all the band members’ names.
Miss Susanne: Who is your favorite Beatle?
Friend: I like Bingo
Miss Susanne: (smiling) yeah, me too
