Consultations

 
 
 
 
 

Consultations give parents the necessary encouragement and direction on how to get started and progress intentionally.

This service focuses on:

  • Best-practice methods for promoting and advancing language, play, & social skills;
  • Introduction and progression of solid foods, with a focus on healthy habits & life-long nutrition;
  • Developing communication skills that foster positive connection with your child.

After participating in this program, parents will understand age-related norms and will have increased confidence to best support their child’s speech, language, and feeding skills during the first year of life and beyond. These consultations are a good fit for parents of both typically developing children and those with identified delays or difficulties. Each consultation is catered to your specific style of parenting and your unique child, while focusing on the necessary components to promote a healthy, happy, and interactive child. These consultations can be completed in-person or remotely using Skype/Facetime.

 
 
 

Parent Coaching

 

Coaching services are designed for those families desiring more hands-on support to develop and implement a specific speech, language, and feeding program for their child. I implement the step-by-step, evidence-based methods from the Hanen: It Takes Two to Talk program in a comfortable, one-on-one environment with you and your child. Similar to my consultations, this coaching option focuses on:

  • Best-practice methods for promoting language, play, & social skills;
  • Introduction and progression of solid foods, with a focus on healthy habits & life-long nutrition;
  • Developing communication skills that foster positive connection with your child.

If you have specific concerns regarding your child’s language, feeding, or oral motor skills, the coaching environment allows for focused discussion and implementation of a specialized plan designed to address your child’s specific needs and current deficits. Early detection is important. . .

 

Oral Motor Training

 

I provide in-depth oral motor training in order to give parents the knowledge and confidence to complete daily  exercises with their child. Consistent and routine completion of oral motor exercises is vital to promote increased strength and precision of the oral musculature in children with low tone. Trainings can be completed in-person or remotely using Skype/Facetime.

 

Private Speech Therapy

 

I offer a limited number of private speech therapy appointments to families in the metro-Atlanta area. Please contact me for availability.
