Logopeda, our business name comes from Latin, and it means "educating speech" (paidea - educate, logos - word). It is a word used in over 7 languages around the world to refer to speech and language therapy. Since we support parents across the globe, we wanted our name to reflect our international scope.
We specialize in Autism Spectrum Disorders and Apraxia of Speech in children ages 1-7. Our team loves working with families and school staff directly, because we believe a child's parents and teachers are the most influential people in their life.
The process of working with us usually involves the following steps:
an initial phone consultation to determine the need for services
an intake consultation over the phone
an in-person evaluation to assess your child's communication needs
