Meet the Specialists
With backgrounds in both psychology and speech therapy, Stephanie has a strong desire to contribute to the community and help children with special needs achieve their fullest potential. She believes that early intervention and family engagement are essential in supporting children with communication needs.
Stephanie graduated from the University at Buffalo with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She then worked as an Educational Therapist for three years, honing her teaching skills and discovering a passion for helping students with dyslexia and other specific learning differences. She is trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction.
As a postgraduate student pursuing a Masters in Speech Therapy, Stephanie has had extensive experience supporting children with various speech and language difficulties. This includes articulation and phonological disorders, receptive and expressive language delays, as well as literacy difficulties. Her clinical placements have involved conducting speech/language assessments and intervention in centre-based and hospital settings, which has developed her capacity to be flexible and adapt to what works best for each child. Patience and perseverance are key, and Stephanie believes that working collaboratively with families to achieve their children’s therapy goals is the way to success.
