MY PRACTICE

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 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.


If you are concerned about your child's speech and language development, please contact me for further information.
