8 Places Any Speech-Language Pathologist Would Like to Visit

8 Places Any Speech-Language Pathologist Would Like to Visit

I have a little confession to make. Sometimes when I get home after a hard day of work, I plop myself down on my couch, grab my iPad, and explore Google Maps. It’s so much fun to just type in random places to see the interactive maps and satellite/aerial imagery that often comes along with each search. And currently, I’m obsessed with looking at maps of the United Kingdom because I’ve never been there before and BOY do I hope to get over there sometime soon. (I really want to see Shakespeare’s hometown, Stonehenge, the University of Cambridge, and oodles more!)

While peeping UK maps, I came across something speech-tacular!

What did I discover? Well, a random street in Broadwell, United Kingdom was called¬†Speech House Road. And the moment I saw it, because I’m a speech fanatic, I started to squeal with pure delight. Speech House Road! What a cool name, right? So speechie! So wonderful!

That road triggered me to see if there were any other speech-related streets out there to be found.

One thing lead to another and before I knew it, I was coming across THE COOLEST streets out there that all had one glorious thing in common: they all were somehow related to the field of speech-language pathology. It just doesn’t get any better than that! So without further ado, please take a moment to peruse the ones that I collected just for you.

Speech Lane, Ponsanooth, United Kingdom (LINK)

Yet another great street in the UK. I’m about one second away from booking myself an airplane ticket so that I can see Speech Lane for myself. Oh, and also get some fish and chips in the process (yum!).

Speech Lane, Ponsanooth, United Kingdom (LINK)

The UK does it again! Speech Lane just sounds like a dream come true. It has such a perfect ring to it. Speech Lane. Yeah. So speech-errific, indeed!

Speech Street, Rayne, Louisiana, United States (LINK)

Finally, the USA has one. Phew! I was gettin’ a bit scared. Big props to LA for this one! I’d love to visit Speech Street. I’d imagine that my speech super powers would grow immensely if I ever had the opportunity to walk along that street. True? Yup!

Communication Avenue, Boca Raton, Florida, United States (LINK)

Yes! Communication! The beautiful art of using words, sounds, signs, or behaviors to express or exchange ideas, thoughts, and feelings to someone else. Us speech-language pathologists can’t get enough of communication, so you know I need to visit FL as soon as possible so I can see this avenue in real life!

Voice Road, Carle Place, New York, United States (LINK)

As speech-language pathologists, one thing’s for sure, we all try our hardest to help people find their voice. So it goes without saying that when I found Voice Road, I was one happy clinician! Being that I’m currently based in New Jersey, I just might take a trip over to NY to see this particular road in the near future. (Don’t worry, I’ll snap a pic to show ya!)

Talkin, Brampton, United Kingdom (LINK)

The UK is back again with a good one. It’s not a street, it’s a town. Talkin. It’s short. It’s to the point. It’s pure speech goodness. If there’s one thing that all of us can agree on, it’s that talkin’ about talkin’ is the best. So because of that, I’m so addin’ Talkin to my list of places I want to visit.

SLP (San Luis Potosi), Mexico (LINK)

Hola amigos! Mexico is a country that is packed with history and culture. But did you know that it also contains an area called SLP? You can’t go wrong with that letter combination. Sign me up, it’s time for an SLP fiesta in SLP! Who’s with me?!

In closing . . .

This beautiful world we live in, it’s filled with wonderful places. It’s also filled with awesome speech-related names of places. Did I miss any cool ones in my list? If I did, please let me know. Let’s get the list even longer!
