With over 30 years experience, I have served a very diverse set of clients with varying communication needs - everything from speech intelligibility to social communication, listening comprehension to expressive language, reading fluency to auditory processing.
Communicating clearly is foundational to a person's confidence and success. Let me help you or your child achieve greater intelligibility through improving speech articulation, rate, or fluency so others will listen to WHAT is being said and not HOW.
More than ever, students and adults on the autism spectrum need clear, explicit teaching in social/pragmatic communication skills. Individual and group sessions available.
Whether a student has language needs in listening comprehension, auditory/visual memory, finding the words to specifically express themselves, or using words grammatically, any language difficulty impacts a student's success in school. I can help pinpoint areas of need and offer strategies and exercises for growth.
Speech-Language Pathologists have deep understanding of the building blocks that result in fluent and accurate reading that is understood by the reader. I offer services to supplement your child's early reading skills in phonics, phonemic awareness, reading fluency and reading comprehension.
If your educational or professional life is being negatively impacted by an accent that makes it difficult for native English listeners to understand you easily, I can help analyze why. Our sessions will focus on helping you modify your speech to be better understood and gain confidence, while keeping your unique ethnicity intact..
