For Professionals

Little Stories has become a place not just for parents, but a place for professionals. For many of us, working with children comes naturally, but teaching what we do to parents and families can be a challenge. Throughout my career, one of my passions has been to inspire professionals to really maximize the power of stories and pretend play and to support them in the challenge of providing family-inclusive services. I’ve been able to expand that passion with Little Stories, by reaching as many educators as possible to help them feel like they can truly make changes that will impact children’s communication and increase each child’s ability to tell their story.

Educators, speech-language pathologists, and other professionals have found information here at Little Stories that they can share with their families that is approachable and digestible, and explains in simple terms what we do. If you’d like to expand on the information you’ve found here, you and I can connect one-on-one about a specific topic you’d like to discuss related to your students or clients, or I can be available to speak to your group.  Here’s how it works:

Personal Consultations

In person, over the phone, through Skype or Face Time, I offer guidance on all aspects of speech and language development, including program planning and development.

Speaking Engagements, Workshops & Trainings

I have trained and spoken to daycare providers, teachers, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and other professionals. I offer a unique approach to early childhood development through teamwork and play that I share with groups through engaging workshops with practical tools and plans for real follow-through. My talks are tailored to meet the specific needs of your group, with follow-through plans in place. Some of the most commonly requested topics are:

  • Picky Choosy: Selecting the Best Toys for Language Development
  • Magical Teaching: Harnessing the Power of Stories and Pretend Play
  • Parents as Partners: Empowering Parents and Building Relationships
