About The Final Piece
Empowering families is the goal! To accomplish this, I offer speech & language-building services that are designed to grow your child's communication skills.
It's super important to make every learning experience fun, so I use a variety of tools to keep your child engaged and learning. I'll incorporate things like sensory breaks, where your child can use his/her body to feel, move, and play with items, that will help to keep the body and mind regulated and ready to learn!
Special Needs Populations
With over a decade of experience in working with both non-verbal and verbal autistic children, children with Down Syndrome, Intellectual Disability, and Rett Syndrome (among others), I absolutely love helping children with special needs grow their communication skills and I look forward to working with your family!
