Once a month we welcome Miss Julie to join us for a casual open house question and answer session for you while your children play!
Please, see Blog for dates and details.
Hi, I’m Julie Miller, M.A. CCC-SLP.
My background: I received my Bachelor’s Degrees in Psychology and Communication Disorders from the University of Florida. I went on to get my Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Tennessee.
After graduating, I worked as an Speech-Language Pathologist in Pinellas County Schools for 7 years. I have been working for Stepping Stones Assessment and Therapeutic Services and Early Steps for the past 6 years, focusing on the Birth to 3-year-old age group. I live in Safety Harbor with my husband, 2 daughters, and bulldog.
“I am honored to be able to come to K Peas Place once a month to share ideas and advice to parents and caregivers who have questions regarding Speech and Language development in their children. K Peas Place provides such a relaxing atmosphere that encourages speech and language in children through play. This is what we want as caregivers – to be able to make speech and language fun through safe and engaging play!
At K Peas Place, children have the opportunity to explore and learn through imaginative play, crafts, gross motor activities, books, and pretend play. All of these elements combined make for the perfect way to build vocabulary skills and socialize with others. I whole-heartedly recommend K Peas Place to my clients and families who are looking for ways to grow their child’s speech and language skills”.
Music with Mar. Classes with Ms. Karen
“I first started coming to Music with Mar classes about 12 years ago with my daughter when she was only about 6 months old. At first, I just thought it was a good way to get out of the house and have somewhere to go each week. This all changed after I experienced the music class. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I was so impressed with the repetitions of the songs and stories, the consistent routine of the class, and the language-rich activities. All of the play-based activities in each music class incorporates the building blocks to strong speech, language, and motor skills. I went on to take my younger daughter to Karen’s class and she loved it just as much as my oldest. What an amazing program that truly helped me meet other moms during the isolating first parts of motherhood, but it also helped my daughters socially, physically, and cognitively. Now, as I work as an Early Interventionist, I recommend Karen’s Music with Mar. class to my families.”
