ABOUT

We are highly experienced, certified speech-language pathologists who specialize in evaluating and treating a wide range of speech-language and cognitive issues for young children, school age children and adolescents.  

 

We focus on helping individuals learn the skills needed to enjoy learning, reading, writing and verbal communication through highly individualized programs that are based on the most current research.

 

To maximize effectiveness and independent carryover of learned skills, we use therapy approaches that develop an individual’s “meta-skills” and “executive function skills”.
