A Note From Us: Why do I find myself always looking forward to February? Is it because January feels so long? Is Valentine’s Day really my favorite holiday and I just don’t know it? I really am not sure, but I do know that every year when the first day of February rolls around, I find myself happier. Maybe people are just generally happier and more kind in the month of love, so why not focus some of our monthly newsletter on acts of kindness. There is even a day this month dedicated to kindness. February 17th is National Random Act of Kindness Day, so we included a few ideas that you all can do as a family to spread a little kindness throughout our community.
Here’s to hoping kindness is both given and received this month,
Your LBL Family
We are beyond thrilled to welcome our newest clinician, Sara Stomps, to Little Big and LOUD. She is the perfect addition to our team.
Sara Stomps is a speech-language pathologist who provides individualized, holistic, and relationship-driven therapy to the pediatric population. She enjoys connecting with her clients by amplifying their voices, highlighting their strengths, and following their lead throughout her sessions. She prioritizes family-centered and collaborative care for speech and language assessment and intervention.
Sara graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she received specialized training related to autism spectrum disorder and developmental disabilities as a Project CASTLE (Clinical Assessment, Screening, Treatment, and Leadership in Evidence-based Practices for Children with Autism) and LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities) trainee. Sara looks forward to using this training as a member of the Little Big and LOUD team!
In her spare time, Sara enjoys spending time with husband, daughter, and dog, Georgia.
WELCOME, SARA! WE ARE SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE!
