One-on-one speech therapy tailored for your child's needs with fun activities that keep them engaged. Sessions run from 45 minutes to 75 minutes depending on your needs and timeline. The needs would be assessed in a consultation/meet and greet and from there we would decide the path to take.
Specialized training in the assessment of children's communication disorders in bilingual/multilingual children as well as training in the treatment of disorders in bilingual children. If your family is bilingual/multilingual, I'm trained to determine if your child has a language disorder or if they are 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.
American Accent Dialect Coaching
Accent Modification is an elective service sought by individuals who want to sound as though they are a native American English speaker, by changing or modifying their pronunciation of words in a second language, such as English.
Usually the main focus is learning to correctly pronounce sounds in American English but it can also include understanding idioms or confusing terms.

Parent/Caregiver coaching is available. This includes activities and strategies to incorporate into your everyday routines that promote language development. This would include meeting with the parent for 30-60 minutes individually, or parent coaching can be incorporated into the child's therapy. The goal is to give the parent the strategies that they need to effectively help their child with their speech/language development.
