Rockford Speech Therapy LLC was opened to better meet individuals and families' needs in a location conveniently located in Rockford/Grand Rapids. My love of languages and working with families is what lead me to the creation of RST. I love being able to connect with families and adapt therapy that is personalized to each child and family!
The practice offers a variety of services at the clinic, in-home, or teletherapy, specializing in early language, bilingual assessment/treatment, and children with expressive/receptive language disorders due to developmental delays.
What We Do
Hi there! I'm Marissa. I'm a bilingual Speech-Language Pathologist and Owner of Rockford Speech Therapy. I have experience working in pediatric outpatient clinics, public schools, preschools, and in-home settings. I really enjoy working closely with families to help parents/caregivers better implement speech therapy strategies into their everyday routines. I also have training in linguistics and specialized training working with bilingual families.
I currently live in Rockford with my husband. I'm a Step-mama, fur-mama and we recently welcomed a new little man to the crew!
We serve a variety of clients at Rockford Speech - from children to adults. We assess and treat children who have developmental and language delays, speech and oral motor issues, stuttering, and children on the autism spectrum. If your family is bilingual/multilingual, I'm trained to determine if your child has a language disorder or if they are simply learning multiple languages. I also have a passion for bilingual development and would love to help your family find the best ways to integrate languages spoken in the home. We also serve adults for accent modification coaching and stuttering therapy.
