I love to work with children who have the following diagnoses or needs:
- Articulation/Phonological Disorder
- Childhood Apraxia of Speech
- Expressive and Receptive Language Disorder
- Developmental Language Disorder
- Social/Pragmatic Language
- Developmental Delays
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices (AAC Devices)
My approach may not work for your family if...
- You want your child to practice using flashcards. I personally find flashcards very boring, so I try to avoid them at all costs. There are some instances where I use flashcards for quick check-ins, but the majority of my therapy is literacy or play focused.
- You do not want to be involved in your child’s therapy. I’ve found that parent involvement often leads to increased carryover and shorter time in therapy.
- You want your child to work on five goals at once. Similar to my feelings about flashcards, I find working on too many goals to be overwhelming, so I don’t do it! I try to keep to one or two goals that we discuss at regularly scheduled progress check-ins.
My approach definitely is for you if...
- You want to learn how to help your child communicate more clearly in their day-to-day life. One of the reasons why I love in-home therapy (both in person and remote) is the opportunity to work within your child’s “natural environment.”
- You understand that play is the “occupation” of childhood. So much learning happens during play, so I love to be playful and engaging during my therapy sessions.
- You like to know the numbers. I’m a very data-driven therapist, so whenever possible I chart progress on a fancy-looking graph.
- You want to be involved in your child’s therapy. It is my preference for parents to be involved in every step of this journey.
