about photo

Hi, we are Lydia Kopel and Elissa Kilduff. Together we have over 50 years of experience.  We have worked in the school system as Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) as well as Special Education administrators. We have developed numerous manuals and have provided workshops all over the US. Currently, we work as lead SLPs in a large metro Atlanta school district. Recently we published a book titled IEP Goal Writing for Speech-Language Pathologists: Utilizing State Standards, published by Plural Publishing and available here: HERE. This book provides clear guidelines of quantifiable building blocks to achieve specific IEP goals that are based on Early Learning Standards and Common Core State Standards. While we have many areas of interest our greatest interest lies with integrating language and the curriculum. Thank you for visiting!

Please feel free to contact us at livingthespeechlife@gmail.com. We are also available to consult with groups and districts for professional learning.
