Sheila Chrobak, M.S., CCC-SLP
My passion is in the play! I love the challenges that come along with individualizing a program for each child and finding activities and materials that inspire the child, the family and me. The "work" of childhood is all about exploration, hands on experiences, trial and error, moving and grooving! I take pride in my unique approach to speech-language therapy services and in recognizing the influences of the "whole" child on their targets and progress within sessions.
My private practice evolved out of a desire to be able to truly meet the constantly changing needs of each student and family. I strive to offer flexibility in my programming in order to maximize speech language therapy opportunities for all families. The duration, frequency, and design of each individual's speech language therapy is unique.
Over the past 25+ years I have had wonderful opportunities to serve a wide variety of children in all types of settings. My experiences have allowed me to collaborate with a range of professionals including pediatricians, neurologists, neuropsychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and classroom teachers. I have enjoyed presenting at conferences, publishing an article, mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, and creating a variety of therapeutic activities to support my clients’ growth and development.
I am certified by the Virginia Board of Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
