About Us

Express Yourself Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) offers treatment, prevention, advocacy, education, and administration, in the areas of communication and swallowing from birth through 18 years of age

These are the areas of speech, language and feeding I work on with chidlren in their own homes or in the community:

Articulation – finding the right place in the mouth to make a sound like /s/ or /r/.
Expressive Language – grammar, vocabulary development, and language development (this might be sign language or verbal language)
Disfluency (stuttering) – decreasing and eliminating disfluency and concomitant behaviors associated with stuttering.
Feeding – increasing food repertoire including textures, colors, and flavors.
Receptive Language – comprehension of verbal or signed language
Social Language – understanding and implementing expected social rules in play and conversation. This can be individually or in groups with peers

Here is a helpful link to check out what is typical or not for your child:

Sessions are 50 minutes.
Parents or caregivers must be present when sessions are in the home. If the caregiver would like a community outing, the child must be driven to the desired location by a caregiver or it should be within walking distance of the home. Parents or caregivers are also welcome and encouraged to join in community outings.
