Welcome to my blog! My name is Catherine Douglas, I’m a Speech and Language Therapist and Mum. Originally from Lancashire in the UK, I have now settled with my family in the beautiful Co. Clare on the West Coast of Ireland. I have worked with children and young adults since 2000.

Whilst I would like to think I could do a pretty good job as far as Speech and Language Therapy is concerned, I’m certainly no expert blogger. However, I figured that if you’re anything like me (a parent, an SLT or a professional seeking to help a child who has a communication difficulty) then you’re always on the look out for useful, novel or interesting ideas and games to encourage children’s speech, language and communication skills.

So, here I am – sharing some of my therapy thoughts and passing on a few great ideas to develop communication skills (some of which I will have begged, stolen or borrowed J).
