WHAT WE DO
Rachel Madel Speech Therapy Inc. primarily serves children aged 2-12 years of age who are having challenges with expressive/receptive language, articulation and fluency. Servicing everyone from late talkers to children with severe autism, our caseloads are diverse and dynamic. We geek out on technology and think that it can be an invaluable tool to help children reach their full communication potential. Something else we feel strongly about? Collaboration with team members. This is essential for a child to quickly make progress that generalizes outside of the therapy room.
