Work History:

During my graduate studies, I worked with pediatrics and adults through East Stroudsburg University’s Speech and Hearing Clinic, Mid Valley School District, and Lehigh Valley Health Network. My clinical experience includes dysphagia, trach-vent, and accent modification as well as disorders of neurogenic communication, articulation, phonology, language, fluency, and voice.

Specialized Training:

“Picky Eaters vs. Problem Feeders: The SOS Approach to Feeding”
This was a 3-day training conference on the SOS Approach to Feeding. This is a feeding program that is a non-invasive developmental approach to feeding. It is designed to assess and address all the factors involved in feeding difficulties. This approach allows a child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful way. It focuses on increasing a child’s comfort level through exploring and learning about the different properties of foods, including texture, smell, taste, and consistency. The SOS approach follows a hierarchy to feeding from tolerating foods in the room, interacting with the food, smelling, touching, tasting, and eventually, eating the food.

Welcome to Young Talkers!

Our mission is to provide quality speech-language and feeding therapy services to the pediatric and adult population in order to enhance their verbal/non-verbal communication and feeding skills. We accomplish this by identifying concerns through specialized evaluations and the development of goals to meet the needs of the patient and the family.
