Meet The Owner

Yemi Idowu, M.S. CCC-SLP

“Over my years in early intervention, I learned that many parents do ​not know how to play with their children” - Ms. Yemi

Ms.Yemi is the owner of Language Building Blocks. She is a licensed ​and ASHA certified speech language pathologist with a focus in early ​intervention. Ms. Yemi loves working in early intervention because she ​gets to work with the entire family unit. As a mother of a neurodiverse ​child on the spectrum, one thing that was a struggle was learning play ​skills that supported communication and social skills.

While working with various families over the years in early intervention, ​many families expressed the need to find playgroups that they could ​take their children to build their communication and social skills. Ms. ​Yemi realized there weren’t many places offering these services. And ​as a result Language Building Blocks was birthed.

The hope is to build a communicty that supports children through play ​while giving their parents hope by building relationships with other ​parents with similar interests and goals as themselves.
