If you are a special needs homeschooler, welcome! I have been a pediatric speech language pathologist for 17 years and also homeschool five children–including identica twin boys with special needs, so I have experience on both sides of the table: both as service provider and parent.
When you have a child with a speech and language issue, they have their own way of communicating…their own way of pronouncing sounds…their own way of speaking…and you become very proficient in this new language. This blog is all about “THEIR words, THEIR way”…simple as that.

Talk it up Speech Therapy
Hello! I’m a Speech-Language Pathologist who has been inspired to share some of my ideas online. Check out my blog to see what activities are motivating my students to talk it up! I work in a public school by day and run my own business by night. Needless to say, I am passionate about working with children with special needs. I hope this is evident in my blog!
Cooking up Good Speech!
My name is Rose Kesting and I am licensed and ASHA certified Speech-Language Pathologist . I work with children who have developmental delays in the areas of speech and language development.
I have been practicing for 18 years in schools and clinics with the preschool population and in the K-12 public school setting. I am also available for private speech therapy services.
My interest in cooking began as a child, preparing many meals for my large family of six. I have continued my passion for cooking with my own family as my inspiration. I believe in using food in its purest forms, avoiding refined sugars and other processed products. I buy organic when possible. I combined my interest in nutrition and healthy cooking with my professional knowledge as a speech-langauge pathologist and thus, www.speechsnacks.com was born!
