Every session is tailored for the individual child and their families. I love what I do, which shows in my sessions.”

Hayley has extensive continuing education in the areas of social communication and fluency disorders. She has vast knowledge and experience with a variety of areas; dysphagia, phonology, articulation, language disorders (receptive/expressive), fluency, autism spectrum disorders and social language. Hayley emphasizes functional and collaborative interventions that emphasize the maintenance and generalization of the targeted skills. “Individualizing therapy interventions to the specific interests and needs of the client is of utmost importance. When a client is engaged, they become self-motivated and empowered to reach their goals. I love seeing the look on a client’s face when therapy approaches “click” and they begin to see success.”
