PEDIATRIC SPEECH, FEEDING AND LACTATION THERAPY IN YOUNGSTOWN, OH

IGNITE YOUR CHILD'S TRUE POTENTIAL

Maura has been an amazing speech language pathologist for my 2 year old.

As an SLP myself, I wanted nothing less than the best for my daughter and knew what I was looking for. I needed someone who truly knew what they were doing and didn’t make me feel like my child was just another kid on their schedule. Maura truly made me feel like she took the time to figure out my daughter and have a game plan for every session. She is so knowledgeable and a great option for this area.
