Hello there! Welcome to the exciting world of Lola Koala, world explorer! I am thrilled to lead you and your family on the many adventures that Lola Koala embarks upon, and I am even more excited to help you teach your little one many important language skills along the way!
As a pediatric speech-language pathologist (SLP), I work daily with little ones to increase their speech and language skills. Now, while I do have many superpowers 😉, no amount of work that I put in can ever compare to the BIG impact that YOU will have on your child. This means that the biggest way to help the kiddos that I work with is to help their families to support and build their speech and language skills at home.
The name of the game is EMPOWER and that is exactly what I hope to do for families with each "Lola Koala's Travel Adventures" book! I have created a book series that aims to help families work on some language skills that I target often with children in my own therapy practice. Some of these skills include: answering questions, following directions and categorizing, to name a few. It is my mission to use the "Lola Koala's Travel Adventures" book series to empower your little explorer (and you, the parent!), to grow together!
So grab your passports and embark on a journey to better language skills with Lola Koala as she teaches your child about new places, encourages him/her to explore, and teaches him/her important language skills as he/she collects clues to guess where in the world Lola has traveled to this time!
