Speechworks Oconomowoc Speech Language Therapist Development Lake Country Family Fun

SPEECHWORKS offers speech and language evaluations and therapy to families in the Lake Country area.  We can help you determine if your child’s speech-language milestones are developing as they should, if your child would benefit from speech services even if they didn’t qualify for school services, and if you should be concerned about the way your child is or isn’t saying a particular sound.Speech-language screenings and community presentations are also available to daycare and pre-school centers looking to provide additional resources for families.
 
Jann Fujimoto, MS CCC-SLP, is a certified speech-language pathologist and the owner of SpeechWorks LLC. 

Do you remember last year? It was 90+ degrees all weekend. Yet, after the long winter, I’m just happy we are hitting 70 and hopefully 80 for part of the 2019 Memorial Day holiday weekend. I could do without the rain, though…but don’t let the chance of rain spoil the holiday weekend. There’s a little bit of something for everyone going on this weekend! Festivals, Memorial observances, farmers markets… Find all the details below and in our GUIDE TO MAY 

You’ll {hopefully} find us out on the lake one or more of the days this weekend, weather pending. Plus, the beaches will be open and some pools, too! And don’t forget about the Hartland Splash Pad! Kids never seem to mind the cold, so let them splash. 🙂 Lake Country Family Fun has so many great ideas for what to do this holiday weekend to keep you entertained! 

But it’s important to remember what the Waukesha Salvation Army wrote,

“As is said, “This coming weekend isn’t National Grill Out Day.” Indeed, it’s the national observance of Memorial Day, honoring the memory of all men and women who have sacrificed their lives in our nation’s wars and in military service…Do enjoy the day and the extended weekend, but also, please remember to say a prayer for those serving, for those who have served, and especially for the souls of those who have died serving. Thank you!”

What a great reminder as we embark on this extended Memorial Day holiday weekend.
