My practice is dedicated to using a personalized approach that is focused on the client as a whole, taking into account each child's unique learning style. I believe communication is built on trust and the therapist/client relationship is of paramount importance.
SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY
Being able to communicate effectively is the heart of speech and language therapy. Using evidence-based practice and a multi-sensory approach, each child's individuality is addressed in a compassionate manner. I collaborate regularly with other related professionals and classroom teachers to ensure carryover of the skills learned in speech and language therapy.

SPEECH AND LANGUAGE EVALUATIONS
The first step in speech and language intervention is a comprehensive evaluation. Evaluations provide a means of identifying speech and language difficulties and deciding with the family what the next steps will be.
Evaluations consist of obtaining a thorough case history, administering testing, and observing the client in school and/or other naturalistic settings.
