About us Talking Mama Bears

We are two full-time speech-language pathologists working in neighboring school districts in northern Illinois AND full-time mamas. We are joining our super mom forces to share our daily speech and language session tips and tricks to make your day-to-day work responsibilities a little easier. And for all those fellow mama bears out there…we hope to give lots of insight on how to support your own child at home to increase language skills, support articulation practice, and ultimately find their roar!
