Web Sources for Speech Therapy Catalogs

Are you drowning in ink, or being smothered in speech therapy catalogs?  I receive many catalogs in the mail and quickly file them away (in the file cabinet or the circular file).  In an attempt to unsmother (not found in the dictionary) and declutter (found in the dictionary), I created a document that lists my speech/language catalog web sites.

In addition to decluttering my home and my office, I can now recycle my catalogs and save a tree.  I can also stop receiving catalogs in the mail and save a second tree.   If you, too, are interested in saving a tree, the web site CatalogChoice.org  offers a way to stop receiving unwanted catalogs in the mail.  It’s sort of like the Do Not Call List of catalogs. 

Here is my disclaimer:  I have purchased items from some, but not all of these sources.  Please view this list as possible resources, as opposed to recommended sites/catalogs based on my personal shopping experience.

Sites for purchasing speech/language products in alphabetical order:

If you are looking for an utterly exhaustive list of online sources for therapy materials, ASHA has a very detailed online buyers guide that lists hundreds of web sites (well, I didn’t count but believe me there are a lot of sites listed).

That’s all from me for today.  If you have any additional web sites for therapy products, I would love to hear about them in the comments section.

Until next time…
