Hi, I'm Marissa!
I'm originally from Arizona, where I became bilingual in Spanish. I have experience working in pediatric outpatient clinics, public schools, preschools, and in-home settings. I enjoy working closely with families to help parents/caregivers better implement strategies into their everyday routines. I work with children who have developmental and language delays, speech and oral motor issues, stuttering, and children on the autism spectrum. I also have additional experience and training with a variety of languages in order to provide monolingual or bilingual therapy approaches to maximize progress across languages.
I created Rockford Speech Therapy LLC for the flexibility to better meet parents' needs. Many parents want to be more involved with their child's speech therapy but there's so little time in the day. My practice is all about adapting therapy to fit into life's hectic schedule.
