When should I talk to a professional about my child?

They pronounce words with sounds I don't expect

They are hesitant to talk because of the way they sound

They seem behind their same-aged peers

They reached developmental milestones late

They do not babble, make noises, or engage much with other people

They understand a lot, but say very little

They get frustrated when they cannot communicate what they need

Other people have trouble understanding my child


What are the next steps?


Schedule a free, 15-minute phone call to talk about your concerns and see if an evaluation is appropriate

Phone Consultation

Each evaluation includes a combination of assessment measures to get a full picture of your child's communicative strengths and challenges


We work with the family to develop a therapy plan that reflects your goals and your child's unique needs

Parent reviews

"Since working with Rebecca, my daughter has improved tremendously. Rebecca is very consistent, reliable and transparent. She gives you strategies that let you help your child in everyday moments. Rebecca has this inner child that gives children complete comfort to open up, overcome obstacles, and achieve their speech goals."
"These past few months I’ve seen my child grow and learn with Rebecca’s techniques and patience. My daughter loves her and is always looking forward to seeing her pull into our driveway. I would recommend her to anyone who’s in need of a speech therapist. Rebecca enjoys her job and it really shows."
"My daughter started working with Rebecca in August 2020 right in the middle of the pandemic virtually on zoom. I really appreciate her patience and caring with my daughter. My daughter loves working with her because she makes therapy fun and I have seen a lot of improvement. I would totally recommend Rebecca to anyone."
Rebecca meets kids where they are and celebrates individual differences as she helps them gain the skills they need to thrive. Rebecca brings a warm and comforting energy to every interaction. I feel confident in sending anyone I know to Rebecca!
"We are very pleased with Rebecca. She is working with our six year old daughter on a lateral lisp. Each week she brings a new, engaging and unique project to work on with our daughter. She is a pleasure to have in our house and we look forward to her weekly sessions. Bonus: her hours are great for working parents/kids that need to be seen after school. Thanks to Rebecca for the great care!"
"We have had a great experience with Rebecca since the moment we met. She is very professional, works with our schedule, and explains in detail the developments my child has had so far. I highly recommend her!"
