Speech Pathology License #27923
At Express Yourself Therapy, we presume potential in all of our clients. We are passionate about helping children find their “voices.” Specifically, we believe in developing a functional communication system where a child can experience the power of their words through verbalization, gesture, sign, and/or alternative and augmentative communication. We believe in “communication first” and enjoy working with children, from toddlers to adolescents of all abilities.
PROMPT Level 2 Trained
We have experience with various populations that include early intervention, autism spectrum disorder, Developmental Apraxia of Speech, Down Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome, and various genetic disorders.
Our areas of specialty are Speech Sound Disorders and Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC).
Establishing a working relationship with family members and caregivers is a fundamental part of every treatment plan. We believe in a "team approach" when working with clients. We understand the importance of carryover at home and make sure to keep parents involved and informed.
Teletherapy allows us to meet through audio and video over the internet. We are very excited about this option because it means no waiting and travel time, and you won’t have to take time off work or other priorities. Plus, it’s 100% HIPAA compliant and secure.
Clinical services are based on the unique needs of each individual client, therefore telepractice may not be appropriate in all circumstances or for all clients.
Candidacy for this service will be assessed prior to initiating services.
