Services Offered

Initial Consultation

Before beginning therapy sessions, an initial consultation is completed to understand your child's speech and language development. This 60 to 90-minute session allows us to determine:

  1. Whether your child would benefit from therapy
  2. The recommended frequency of therapy sessions
  3. Goals to target during therapy

During this consultation, I will ask you questions to gain an understanding of your child's development. Your child's communication skills will be assessed using informal methods. The assessment is primarily play-based, making it a fun and engaging experience. Often, children don't even realize they are being assessed! This approach helps ensure the assessment is as natural and comfortable as possible for your child.

Speech and Language Therapy Sessions

Therapy sessions are conveniently held in your child's home or educational setting, tailored to suit the environment that works best for your family.

The structure of each session may vary based on several factors, including your child's age, specific therapy goals, and the surrounding environment. Typically, sessions include a mix of parent coaching, play, and structured activities. With a focus on making each session engaging, we ensure that learning is fun and effective for your child.

Areas I can support

Language Development

Helping young children acquire their first words, build longer sentences, and use a wider variety of vocabulary. I will empower you with the tools to help your child communicate more effectively with family, friends, and teachers.

Speech Sound Production

If your child has difficulty pronouncing certain sounds, or has unclear speech, they may benefit from speech therapy. I can assess and treat speech sound disorders that affect the clarity of your child's speech, including articulation, phonological disorders and Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS).

Augmentative an Alternative Communication (AAC)

AAC is a way of communicating without speech or with limited speech. AAC involves using pictures, symbols, gestures, signs, or devices that speak for you. I can help you find the best AAC system for your child's needs and teach them how to use it to express themselves effectively.

Stuttering / Fluency

Stuttering is a lack of fluency, or a difficulty speaking without halting, getting stuck, or repeating sounds. If your child is stuttering, I can provide your family and your child with strategies to help them speak more smoothly.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Each child with Autism is unique and wonderful in their own way. Goals will be tailored according to each child's specific needs and will include but will not be limited to the areas listed above.

Much more
