Welcome to my speech clinic tour!
Today I’d like to give you a virtual tour of my beloved speech clinic. I rent a little less than 150 square feet in a shared office building. I’ve tried my best to create an environment that is cozy, inviting, and functional.
Many speech-language pathologists work in cramped and chaotic workspaces due to space or budget constraints. Cluttered, cramped, noisy – we have seen it all. This is especially true in the school setting. Several years ago, I even conducted speech therapy in an unused boy’s shower room. (I know, I know. A true story.) So it goes without saying that this new space feels like a real treat.
Speech Clinic Tour – Play Space
I’ve got a window, floor space for young clients, and storage for toys. This is my favorite little nook, where I work with my younger clients. This is a fun space to play and learn. I particularly enjoy the natural light from the window and the mountain views.
Speech Clinic Tour – The Parent’s Space
This little corner is where parents and siblings can hang out while I work with my client. I love using lamps to make the space warm and unintimidating for even the shyest of clients. Even so, I’d like to add a bit more color to this nook. I’m thinking of adding something to the walls. Any suggestions?
Speech Clinic Tour – Speech Therapy Table
Here is my space for older clients (and sometimes younger clients, too, for shorter bursts of time). I like that it’s uncluttered and allows space for clients to focus and work. The framed print on the wall is of the Loch Ness Monster, which says “The important thing is that I believe in myself.” It was a gift from my sister, and I smile when I see it. If the Loch Ness Monster can believe in himself, you can too. That is at least what I tell my clients!
Speech Therapy Room Tour
I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour of my speech therapy space. It’s a work in progress, but I do enjoy sharing photos. It’s sometimes nice to visualize the space before visiting. If you are a parent and you are considering coming to my clinic, feel free to share these photos with your child.
Thank you for your interest in seeing my speech clinic! If you’d like to see it in person, I am currently accepting new pediatric clients. You can find out more about my clinic by visiting my Frequently Asked Questions page, or contact me.
