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.
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!
