Michelle has a strong passion in the areas of language development (grammar, including pragmatics; and receptive and expressive language), literacy (reading and writing skills along with phonological and phonemic awareness), and articulation delays and phonological disorders.
Michelle prides herself in the use of play therapy to target all speech and language goals. She not only improves her client’s speech and language, but focuses on educating families on the appropriate ways for language development; as well as, how to generalize skills learned in therapy sessions. She has a great understanding that in order for a client to be successful and reach their true potential it requires a “team” approach. Over the years Michelle has seen many successes when the client’s family, care takers, and teachers are involved in helping the client reach his/her goals.
