Nicole Stewart and Fran Newman are licensed pediatric speech-language pathologists who have diverse backgrounds in working with children for over 30 years, combined. We believe that young children learn best through play, so we incorporate speech and language lessons into fun, play-based activities that appeal to each individual child. We also believe that parents are the experts on their own children, and we are committed to working closely with parents when designing therapy programs. Finally, all of our services incorporate current research for best practices.
We offer the following services:
- FREE speech-language screenings (ages 3-6 years)
- Summer services
- Individualized Education Program (IEP) Consultation
- Information sessions in private schools, physician offices, and parent groups
We are highly experienced in working with families and children (toddlers through adolescents) in the areas of:
- Language development
- Articulation and speech-sound disorders
- Language-based learning difficulties
- Narrative language
- Social communication
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
- Pre-literacy development
- Executive functioning
I am not sure I can ever put into words how grateful we are for your presence in Brandon's* life. You taught him how to speak so others could understand him and how to interact with the world. Thank you for everything you have given him and for sharing your talent with him. The relationship you and Brandon* built has had such an impact on him. He trusts you like he trusts very few people. I would not be surprised if he ends up being a teacher or even a speech therapist-- and he would be a good one with a teacher like you.
We appreciate that when you look and listen to James*, you see all of who he is, not just a kid with speech issues. You have reminded me, during times of my own worries for James*, that he is a smart and sweet boy. You have set the tone for James* to feel good about himself and we are incredibly grateful for this gift.
After Nathan* started working with you, we quickly became impressed with your dedication and abilities. You had specific goals, methods to achieve these goals, and kept us apprised along the way. Anytime we had questions you either gave us an answer or researched the topic. We all so appreciate your efforts, and the results are clear.
Jon* has progressed with you from a youngish two year old with a handful of words and SO many missing sounds to a four year old with nearly age appropriate speech! As parents it's wonderful to know that Jon's speech difficulties will not plague him in school and in life-- he can communicate with family, teachers, and friends. And it's wonderful (most of the time!) to know what he's thinking.
