About Us

We formed Speech Therapy Associates so that we could provide high quality, individualized assessment & therapy along with parent and family education and involvement. After years of experience in other settings, we found that high numbers of students, mounting paperwork, and other constraints were compromising our ability to do what we do best: help children communicate to their fullest potential!
