Hi everyone! I am so excited to announce that Live Speak Love has re-branded and is expanding. We are now Geary Therapy Associates! As of August 2019, we will be open for business in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area. Don’t worry — I will be keeping this blog, so you will still be able to access all the resources I’ve posted. But be sure to check out my new website and Facebook page for up-to-date postings and resources. THANK YOU for all of your support over the past seven years! And even though the name has changed, I hope that you will continue in the spirit of this blog — working hard to help others Live, Speak, Love.

WHOOO Loves Owls?!

Wow, I am loving the response to my cute Owl Clipart – seems I am not the only one who thinks the little owls are perfect for the back-to-school season!  You can read more about my year-round obsession with owls here or here. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to my love for the little creatures (in real life, I would probably just watch in awe and run for my life if one dared come close to me, hahaha. I am always fearful that my little five pound ball of fluff puppy, Cooper , will be carried away by a hungry fowl. But I DO love them from afar.)

Anyway, here is a repost of my ever popular WHO questions featuring the Owl Clipart I made. Hope you enjoy!!

Feature on PediaStaff

Many of you read the recent post featuring Gretchen Hines and her poignant story of being Mom to a child with apraxia. Gretchen’s story of a mother’s love, sadness, frustration and eventual success touched many  hearts (including mine) and inspired us as parents, therapists, educators and advocates. I am pleased to report that Gretchen’s story is featured in PediaStaff’s Parent’s Corner this week! Special thanks to social media extraordinaire, Heidi Kay, for picking up the story and spreading the word.
