Jennifer Houch | MS, CCC-SLP

Speech-Language Pathologist

Are you worried your child’s communication skills are inadequate and will limit their chances of making friends, bonding with family members, or doing well in school? Maybe you’ve tried working on these deficits at home and it’s left you frustrated with little improvement.

As a speech-language pathologist, it’s been amazing to watch the transformative progress kids of all abilities can make in their communication skills. I can equip you and your child with the tools needed to increase their speech and language skills so they can reach their full potential socially and academically.

After discussing your child’s needs and family goals, I will conduct a thorough evaluation which will guide our treatment plan.

As a mother of two, I know the heartache and concern you may have if your child is not meeting expected milestones.

If you want your child to speak more clearly, use more words, or engage more appropriately with others then give me a call to set up a free 10-minute consultation to get started.
