Kelly Ibanez 1I am Kelly Ibanez, a multilingual speech language pathologist serving culturally and linguistically diverse populations in Los Angeles, CA.


I created The HOLA Blog in hopes of fostering a space from which to disseminate helpful resources for professionals and the public regarding bilingual language and speech development. Once in a while I also post general information or resources for speech language pathologists only, as well. This website is still in its infancy, but little by little it is growing. I appreciate your support!


My greatest interests are language acquisition and public outreach. My hope is that this blog will combine these interests by connecting professional ideas to a public audience, in order to help bridge the achievement gap between the privileged and underprivileged youth in my city. I firmly believe that the creation and dissemination of info-graphics and other visuals can help spread awareness and understanding of bilingual language development to professionals and the public. Feel free to use and disseminate the resources I have compiled, but do not remove my name from the products I created. I am always interested in collaboration with other like-minded individuals, so feel free to reach out to me on social media.
