I am a certified speech language pathologists, licensed in NY and CT. I am trained in all aspects of speech and language disorders, however I specialize in Sensory motor feeding disorder, Oral Placement/Oral motor, Speech Motor disorders, Stuttering and Myofunctional Disorders (tongue thrusting). I work one to one with families in my clinic, in homes and in schools. I conduct evaluations and program plans for children in NY and Fairfield, CT. I utilize a multi sensory approach to treatment and focus on each child's unique individual learning style. I have specialized training in Oral Placement disorders, SOS feeding, Apraxia, Applied Behavioral Analysis, autism, Myofunctional therapy, Thumb/finger/tongue sucking, Beckman techniques, and PROMPT. Parents can choose to pay privately or receive services via many health insurance providers. Flexible hours and scheduling include evenings and Saturdays.
Evaluation and treatment are available for but not limited to; Autism Dysarthria(low tone), Down Syndrome, failure to thrive, self limited diets and mastication deficits. Myofunctional Disorders (tongue thrusting), speech clarity deficits, Apraxia, ankyloglossia (tongue tie), Feeding and swallowing aversions and deviated swallowing which contributes to orthodontic, pedodontic and periodontic problems. The structure of the oral mechanism is taken into account and function. I also believe that the training of the parents and caregivers is critical as parents are always welcomed to observe therapy sessions and became active participants in the therapy process. Collaboration of all professionals involved in the child'd medical and educational plan are also considered to be very important.
