  • Too Young for AAC?

    From the start of my career as a Speech-Language Pathologist, I have worked with many children who use high-tech speech generating device systems (SGDs) or augmentative communication. While many speech-language pathologists worried that SGDs would slow down speech, I found the opposite to be true: using SGDs helped the children I worked with create an…

Some Happy Clients

  • “We were referred to Rebecca through another therapist to help us with some feeding and speech issues we’re working on with our son, Bennett, who has CP and is on a feeding tube.  We are so incredibly grateful to have found her!  

    Right off the bat, she gave us so much new and valuable information on treatment options and therapies.  Even though we are located across the country, she took the time to help us find the right local therapists.  She is obviously very well versed in the latest therapy techniques.  We only wish we were located in New York so we could work with her in-person! But for now, she’s been an awesome resource both on the phone and via her blog and Instagram.  I would tell anyone looking for help in navigating the world of feeding and speech to make Rebecca your first call!”

    A Caring Mom

  • She is young, energetic, has a great tech background and wants to work in a progressive environment with equally motivated, energetic therapists. She does so much extra work in the community outside of school and formal work hours helping all ages to access the wider world through her extensive knowledge. She has done so many extra courses in order to make sure that whomever she is working with, she is always doing her best to access them where they are at. Most importantly she has a kind, caring personality.

    Email from one parent to another parent

  • My son, Jesse, started working with Rebecca when he was just 4 years old. His initial evaluation was eye-opening, revealing he was more delayed in speech and language development than we had thought. Since that day, Rebecca has shown patience, dedication, compassion, and commitment to excellence that far exceeds my expectations each week, each session. Jesse shows steady improvement, which has not only improved his life, but our family’s as well.”
