We are committed to educating and spreading awareness of the benefits of speech pathology through community outreach programs. 

Services Provided

Initial consultations
These 15-20 minute screenings allow us to determine if a more thorough evaluation would be beneficial for your child.
An evaluation is the first step in the process to obtaining therapy.   We use a combination of parent interview, clinical observation, as well as formal and informal testing to determine the type of delay that is present and set individualized goals accordingly.
Speech and Language Therapy
We help children who are having difficulty communicating. Whether it is due to a limited number of spoken words, frustration surrounding communication or difficulty being understood, we can help!
Feeding Therapy
Is your child having trouble gaining weight or a picky eater? Are mealtimes difficult? They may be a candidate for feeding therapy.
Executive Function Therapy
Is your child or teen having trouble in school? Are you concerned with how they will navigate high school or college? Do they get frustrated with tasks that you feel should be easy? Further evaluation of their executive function skills may be beneficial.
Parent Coaching
Parent involvement is a fundamental part of your child’s progress.  Coaching allows us to provide additional resources and ideas to address your child’s goals in your home.   This may be conducted individually or in a small group format.

From the owner

I was inspired to enter the field by my uncle, Frankie, who had Down Syndrome. Although, he passed in 2014 at the age of 60, his infectious zest for life lives on in those he knew.
