Johnson Therapeutic - Lori Johnson MS,CCC-SLP is the developer of the Textured Spoons and owner of Johnson Therapeutic. Her experience as a speech-language pathologist ranges from the school setting to outpatient and inpatient hospital settings. It was at an American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) convention when Bruce and Barbara Ryan, both speech-language pathologists, established a business relationship with Lori regarding their invention of the Tongue LifteR. The concept behind their product was to establish appropriate lingual placement to produce /r/ during articulation therapy. The Tongue LifteR was added to the Johnson Therapeutic website in 3 different colors for a child friendly appearance. Feedback from SLPs indicated the positive impact this product had on students efficiently meeting their articulation goal of producing the /r/ sound. The Tongue LifteR has been made available for retail and wholesale purchase, just as the Textured Spoons.
