Speechy Things focuses on empowering speech therapists and parents to help kids! Lindsey loves to explore and discuss all things autism, AAC, and sensory! 

 
After all, you cannot see progress without sensory considerations. It’s the foundation for everything!

Hi I’m Emily, I’m 25 and I have Sensory Processing Disorder.
 
I am an illustrator and blogger living in the U.K. discussing daily living as a sensory-being over on my blog called 21andsensory. (I started my blog when I was 21 which explains the name 21andsensory!).
 
One of the aims of my blog is to bring people everywhere together to discuss their sensory problems and how they cope with their everyday lives. I want it to be recognised that sensory problems aren’t something children necessarily grow out of but learn to deal with for the rest of their lives. 
 
A bit more about me and my background: I also have anxiety/depression, mild OCD, hyperhydrosis and severe dyslexia (I was only assessed and told I was dyslexic when I was 19!). 
 
I have a first class (BA Hons) Graphic Design degree. I am a Graphic Designer full-time working solo in-house at a cool company (well I think so anyway!). I love my job as it gives my days structure and routine.

Hi
 
I am Amanda Mc Guinness, Autism Writer, Blogger and Educator. I have 4 children; my oldest daughter Hailey and my 3 Autistic sons; Conor (9), Jack (5) and Max (2). 
 
Online, I help to support other Special Needs families by writing about my experiences as a Special Needs mom. I share educational resources for FREE over on my website www.littlepuddins.ie and answer parents questions daily over on my Instagram @littlepuddins.ie 
 
My oldest son Conor was one of the youngest infants ever diagnosed with Autism in County Mayo at the time and was also one of the most severe cases of Autism that had ever been seen. Conor’s diagnosis has altered my life’s course and has enabled me to reach thousands of families around the world since. What started out as a lonely life driving the roads of Ireland at night on my own with my little boy has resulted in a happy family life, busy and stressful but full of love. 
 
I am a Law Graduate and use my academic skills to educate my children at home. I regularly share my educational resources and advices for free on line with parents. I home school my two oldest sons and have taught Conor to read, write and do basic maths. 
I would love to have you come along this journey with us. You can find me over on Instagram daily or on my website www.littlepuddins.ie 
 
Until next time, 
 
Amanda

As a practicing Speech-Language Pathologist, I am always looking for new and fun ways to target speech and language. I find that language is best elicited when children are encouraged to be creative, have fun, and use their imagination. 
 
In 2018, I began creating and selling interactive therapy materials. My goal is to create functional stimuli that is no-prep for the adult and engaging for the child.
 
All of my materials come with easy to follow instructions so thvat they may be used by SLPs, teachers, and parents.
I sincerely hope you enjoy using my products as much as I have enjoyed making them!

Hi!
I am a passionate Special Education Teacher who has a wide variety of SEN experience in my seven years teaching.
I have also worked on the Junior Cycle Level Two Team & have completed the Graduate Diploma in SEN. My goal for @teachingteensdifferently is to share ideas, resources and goals for teens with SEN.
I feel teens with SEN can be overlooked. I want to encourage parents and teachers to push our teens with SEN to their full potential!
