10 Great Free Informative Websites for SLPs

10 Great Free Informative Websites for SLPs from Looks-Like-Language
If you need some information to be sure you are on the right path with your therapy, this post is for you!  My students have covered the range of ages and communication difficulties over the years. I suppose the biggest common denominator has been that the majority of my students have been functioning way below the 16%ile. I even considered naming my blog ‘Life Below the 16%ile’, but went with Looks Like Language instead.


For me, this has meant two things to strongly consider:
1- Since my students are going to need much support and much practice to be able to learn, maintain and functionally use the skills I am teaching, I want to think ahead and make sure that I am working toward practical life skills that will be helpful and worth all the effort of learning.
2- If someone has also thought about this, and possibly figured out a best practice for the skill, it is worth the time to educate myself first!
So, with that in mind, here are some of the sites that I feel are definitely worth visiting.
