Our Founder’s Story

As Founder and Clinical Director of Great Speech Inc., I know personally how speech therapy can open doors and change lives.

But in more than a decade of work as a speech therapist, I have seen countless situations where people could not access the therapeutic services they needed and for so many different reasons. Some struggled with transportation or had to cancel because of inclement weather conditions. Others found it difficult juggling the needs of the family and work schedule. Schools often were challenged to provide tailored services to a diverse student population.

I knew there had to be a better way.

As I searched for a solution, I realized that technological innovations were poised to completely transform the profession. With TeleSpeech, the transformation is complete. There are so many advantages. Now, a grandmother in Chicago, who suffered a stroke, can connect online with a speech therapist from Houston, while her daughter in Cleveland monitors the session. Parents no longer have to leave work early or bring the entire family to a speech therapy session. Instead, they can prepare dinner while the child is working with the therapist, in the comfort of their home. A therapist who moves out of town can continue to provide services to the same clients. Equally as important, in a class of 15 students with varying disabilities, each child can work individually with a therapist trained to address a specific need. HIPAA compliant, secure, personally tailored, highly effective therapy is now accessible, affordable, and convenient for children, teens, adults and seniors.

Each of our speech therapists have a Masters Degree in Speech-Language Pathology. In addition each one holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and is licensed by various state licensing boards.
