Those of you who've followed our company's journey are aware that our first two language-building felt playsets - MY LITTLE HOUSE and MY LITTLE FARM - have won a ton of awards from both mainstream organizations and those dealing with differently-abled kids.
You can see most of those awards seals proudly displayed on our website.
AND NOW... we're honored that our two new products for 2022 are getting a lot of love and recognition from a prestigious source.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Yvonne Johansen.
Hi Yvonne, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story? As a Speech Language Pathologist who has been working with little ones for more than three decades, it’s rewarding, a little surprising and very fulfilling to look back at the road I’ve traveled and the journey I’ve taken.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to work with children. I enrolled in college not knowing exactly what my role with k...
Over the course of my 30+ career as a Speech-Language Pathologist, I've been asked many questions by parents and those interested in getting into the field. Here, in no particular order, are some of the most common.
