Private Speech and Language Pathologists

Need a Speech and Language Pathologist?

We have found that contacting a school that specializes in your child's disability can be very helpful.  Such schools work with many different providers, and will often share the names of private speech and language pathologists (SLPs) with whom they have had good experiences.

The SLPs listed below have been recommended by at least three SPED PAC members.  However, we cannot in any way guarantee your results.  It is important to check references, review credentials, and interview the professionals to understand whether their skills and approach are a good fit for your child.
