Dot to Dot: Pediatric Speech Language Therapy LLC is a private practice dedicated to ensuring a "whole" child approach to speech-language therapy services.
I recognize that speech and language development does not occur in isolation of other medical, developmental, and environmental factors and utilize a creative, energetic, and playful therapeutic style to engage the children I work with and address their individualized goals effectively and efficiently.
With a deep understanding and respect for all of the sensory and motor systems that contribute to each child’s strengths and weaknesses, speech language therapy can be successful in supporting the functional performance of a child across settings and contexts. I have found great success in designing therapeutic activities that integrate all sensory and motor systems along with communication targets.
Office, school, home based, and virtual speech language therapy services are designed to support all aspects of communication functioning including those associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Developmental Apraxia of Speech, Gestalt Language Processors, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), Specific Language Impairment (SLI), Social Pragmatic Difficulties, Receptive and/or Expressive Language Disorders, Speech/Articulation Disorders, Fluency Disorders, Voice Disorders.
Services are individualized and a variety of strategies from different therapeutic approaches and models are integrated into sessions, including
The Greenspan Floortime Approach™ and DIR® Model
Relationship Development Intervention (RDI™)
The SCERTS© Model
Soma®RPM (Soma-Rapid Prompting Method)
Sensory based supports
Dr. Ross Greene’s Collaborative & Proactive Solutions Model
In addition to the above, I am a Certified ChildLight Yoga® Instructor and incorporate yoga, breath work, mindfulness, and movement strategies in sessions.
Collaboration between a child’s educational and therapeutic team is essential to success and Dot to Dot guides and supports these interactions.
