Hello and welcome. This is the Barry family blog.

I've been wanting to create a blog for some time now, however, due to the stresses of grad school I had to put that dream on hold.

As many of you know, I recently took 2 major tests, Comps and Praxis. The comprehensive exam or "comps" are what I have to pass in order to graduate from UTD with my master's in Communication Disorders. It consists of 4 essay questions covering 4 areas: Child Speech, Child Language, Adult Speech, and Adult Language. The other exam is called the "Praxis". It is a test that measures my specific knowledge about Speech and Hearing Science. It is part of my certification process in becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist. Now, although I don't know my results yet, these tests are finished and I can move on to more important things such as creating this blog!

Tonight, I will keep it short as I need to fold laundry and do some dishes, but I look forward to blogging and keeping in touch with all of you!

Eventually I hope this blog can be cute, entertaining, and informative....thus far it's pretty blah, so any tips are appreciated!


  1. Yay for blogging and double yay for being done with COMPS and Praxis!!!
