“I’m creating new resources for SLPs, parents, and teachers to use to make a difference in the lives of the children they serve.”


(From MommySpeechTherapy.com) My name is Heidi Hanks and I’ve been a practicing Speech-Language Pathologist since 2000. Most importantly I am the mother of four wonderful kids, Samuel (14), Sophie (11), our red-headed tornado Sawyer (8) and last but certainly not least, my little Scarlet Rose (5). I have enjoyed every minute of watching them learn, and discover the world around them. I went to school at Utah State University where I completed both my Bachelor’s and my Master’s degrees. After I graduated I started my first job at Kids on the Move, an early intervention program in northern Utah. I worked there until my first child, Sam, was one year old and then I decided it was time to spend a little more time at home with him. I’ve been doing private therapy from my home ever since and it’s been a great transition. I love it! It gives me an opportunity to be a Mom, and still help children. It’s an adventure working with every child and my goal is to continue to learn more and improve my skills as a Speech Therapist so that I can see more of these kids progress and grow in their language development.
