Children of speech-language pathologists kinda have it rough. Their speech-language pathologist parent likely knows the expected age for every single milestone, including articulation patterns. Their speech, swallow, and cognition is evaluated non-stop. Their reading skills are pumped up with phonics and the term ‘dyslexia’ is thrown out at around age three months. Children of speech-language pathologists probably often end up being recorded by their speech-language pathologist parents and appear on YouTube. In fact, this is quite a growing trend, because these parents can then use the videos for their phonology lectures if they are a professor, or to show at an IEP meeting if they work in a school, or to show to their SLP colleagues. If shown to their SLP colleagues, an in-depth conversation likely takes place with endless jargon and questions related to distinctive features and allophones and joint attention and phoneme grapheme correspondence and how well they breast-fed.
As they age, their speech pathology parents likely have investigated every strategy to introduce real foods into their diet and have very significant feelings about baby-led weaning.
But, kids of speech language pathologists also have it pretty good. They likely have a parent who is invested in their holistic development and sees the bigger picture of their lives as they prepare them to be strong, independent, critical thinkers in this crazy world.
