The Best Speech Therapy Materials Made For SLPs BY SLPs

High quality speech therapy materials are in high-demand.

The speech-language pathologists I know who have started businesses are among creative groups of people I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with.

Remember back in grad school – 

when you had more than enough time to carefully color in and perfectly laminate your speech therapy materials to meet your clients specific needs? 

Even if the materials weren’t used beyond that session – 

they were perfect – 

and you were proud of them. (And probably your clinical instructors were as well!)

I’m guessing that the same people on this list were those creative SLPs… and still are.

Only now they’ve figured out how to create speech therapy materials that wouldn’t just work for one client – but hundreds – maybe thousands – 

and because of this, they have been able to make their speech therapy resources available to clients and SLPs across the country and even the world. 

Without further adieu – 

here are my top recommendations for speech therapy materials created for SLPs BY SLPs.


Dr. Meredith Poore Harold of TheInformedSLP

Target Audience:
Speech-language pathologists who strive to use evidence-based practice. 

In a Nutshell:
We search the top speech–language pathology journals each month, looking for articles that are immediately relevant to your daily practice. We then read and reduce that research down to plain-language reviews of only the most clinically-applicable pieces.

​Our monthly Evidence You Can Use reviews are available in web, print, and audio formats.

​All so you can spend less time reading, ​and more time treating.
