Do you feel like your child’s speech and/or language skills are not typical for their age? Are you concerned your child’s speech and/or language skills are not progressing at the same rate as their peers? Rachel provides families with information on speech-language development, common developmental disorders, and up-to- date treatment strategies through 30 minute consultation sessions.


Rachel conducts thorough speech-language evaluations in order to determine a child’s need for speech therapy. Following an evaluation, a comprehensive speech-language report can be written. Reports provide a detailed outline of your child’s current speech and language skills and highlight areas of concern using standardized testing norms.

Therapy Sessions

60-minutes Speech Therapy sessions can be provided both within the child’s home as well as remotely via Skype or Face Time. Sessions can also include carry-over activities and parent training when requested.
