In addition to lengthy post graduate training I hold current certifications in:

* Accomplished Master ( currently training for Level 5 Certification) from SRJ Therapies
* Advanced intervention training from the PROMPT Institute
* Advanced feeding therapy in the following methodologies:
o SOS Feeding Approach by Kay Toomey - SOS Feeding is a program for assessing and treating children with feeding and weight/growth difficulties. Developed by Dr. Toomey over nearly two decades of work with problem feeders.
o Sensory Motor Approach by Lori Overland - Methods of promoting acceptance of touch for therapeutic feeding and oral stimulation and movement as well as hands-on learning of techniques for spoon feeding, straw drinking and chewing solid foods.
With regard to any child’s treatment, I know there is no cookbook approach for great speech therapy. Every client is unique even if they have the same label! I view labels as imperative for reimbursement or placement purposes because most schools and insurance companies demand them. In my practice, the description of the client’s challenges and strengths, combined with what elicitation techniques worked in their evaluation, is what drives my treatment plan and goals for therapy. I know when to use traditional methods and when to pull from my unconventional, yet proven, trick bag. The bottom line is I’m dedicated to helping my clients communicate and I will do whatever it takes to make them successful! I love being a Speech Language Pathologist!
