Welcome! The Speech Room News® is a speech therapy blog for speech-language pathologists and other educators. I use this space of the internet to share the news from my speech room to yours! I’m so glad you’ve found me!
My name is Jenna Rayburn Kirk, M.A.,CCC-SLP. I’m an ASHA certified pediatric speech-language pathologist. I work in the Columbus, Ohio area. I’m a graduate of The Ohio State University and Ohio University. My clinical experience has focused on pediatric speech and language therapy. I’ve worked with children aged 2-15 in schools and clinics. My current interest is in preschool-aged children.
When I’m not rocking life as an SLP, you’ll find me with my husband, Scott, our two sons, and our two dogs.
Shortly after I got started, SRN turned from a hobby into a business. I realized I could take my passion for working with special needs children, my passion for problem solving, and my passion for crafting and make my own speech therapy materials. Like all passion projects, this one didn’t start as a business to make money. It started because I love to share, collaborate, and learn. Now that SRN is such a big part of my life, I’m happy to consider it not only my passion but a full-time job.
So, what will you find here on The Speech Room News? News and ideas straight from my speech room. Actually, my speech cart. I do all my services on an inclusion model and haul my life around in a rolling cart! I hope you find inspiration to try a different approach with a difficult client. I hope you find inspiration to ditch the worksheets and do something fun with a client. I hope I can save you hours of planning time so you can go do something that YOU are passionate about.Follow along on social media to keep up with life around here!
