Rosslyn Delmonico, MA, RSLP, CCC-SLP, has been a Speech-Language Pathologist for over 35 years both within the private and public school systems, and has had her own private practice since 1991. Through her years of experience, she has worked almost exclusively with school-age children, with her main focus of interest being on those with language impairments.

Rosslyn saw a need for a connected and comprehensive social language program, one which would take language-impaired children from a basic greeting to the most complex conversation that they were capable of having. In 2006, she started developing a speech-language therapy tool for children within her caseload called Color My Conversation. Since that time, it has continued to emerge as a social language based program applicable for both special needs and general education children.

Rosslyn discovered that her best teaching practices developed over her years of experience included movement, color, song, and hands on learning. If the children were having fun, they were engaged. When they were engaged, they were learning! Her multisensory approach to teaching has proven to be highly effective with her students. Rosslyn's personal philosophy is that all children are special, can learn, and have something to give the world through their unique personalities.

Nancy L. Geruntino, MA, SLP, has been a practicing speech-language pathologist for over 30 years providing services in private practice, clinics, and public school settings. For the past 12 years Nancy has been developing and perfecting a new intervention technique for ‘R’ remediation. Years of observing children failing when traditional therapies were used to remediate ‘R’ provided the motivation for Nancy to develop a ‘R’ remediation program that addresses all ‘R’ sounds in all contexts.

Through the creation of the Up, Down, & Slide Alphabet, this program can help speech-language pathologists teach students and clients how to categorize ‘R’ sounds into one of these categories to improve tongue motor planning and the pronunciation of ‘R’ to overcome barriers related to pronunciation, spelling and dialect. Nancy is the recipient of many school district awards including one for creating a speech improvement program for kindergarten students. She is also the author of 14 children's books. Nancy hopes that wide implementation of her program during the early school years will eliminate 'R' problems in middle school and high school.
