She provides speech therapy for children of all ages who have a wide variety of speech-language needs. Therapy builds upon the individual student’s strengths and interests so that it is meaningful and fun. Children and teenagers are active participants in therapy; they are invested in their own progress. Multi-sensory supports such as visual schedules, videos, and written prompts are used to accommodate different learning styles. Literacy development is an important part of therapy because students with oral language issues often need help with reading and writing.

Anna is Hanen® certified so parents play a very important role in speech language therapy. She partners with parents to encourage communication development.
