Who We Are

We are speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists who are passionate about serving and supporting families.

Our speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists are nationally certified, state-licensed, and highly trained in a variety of specialty areas. We are neurodiversity-affirming and strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all families. We bring commitment and passion to every session and pride ourselves on our creative programs, flexibility, quick decision making, and long-standing partnerships with local physicians, dentists, orthodontists, and community agencies.

What We Do

We provide high-quality services to families by putting kids at the center of therapy.

We offer three models of service: in-clinic, teletherapy, and a hybrid of the two.

We offer speech-language therapy for articulation, expressive and receptive language, oromyofunctional issues, motor speech, feeding and swallowing, stuttering, executive functioning, and social language.

We offer occupational therapy for fine and gross motor skills, feeding, self-care, hand-eye coordination, sensory integration, and visual-motor skills.

Intake and Insurance

Navigating care is challenging. We're here to help.

Taking the first step toward selecting a speech therapist or occupational therapist for your child can be an emotional experience. You might be full of questions and concerns of all sorts, ranging from insurance coverage to clinician qualifications to what will happen if your child throws a tantrum and refuses to participate. Emotions and concerns and questions mean that you’re engaged and focused on what’s best for your child. Coincidentally, so are we!

Clinic Announcements

Emily D’Agostino, Occupational Therapist

Play and self-care development are two of the primary occupations for children.

Emily D’Agostino, Occupational Therapist

Play and self-care development are two of the primary occupations for children. My favorite part of being a therapist is using directed play to develop skills to allow for the highest level of performance. I have worked with pediatric patients and their families as an occupational therapist since 2017 in various settings including outpatient, school, hand therapy, acute care, and rehabilitation. I love to hide skill development within meaningful activities and natural contexts to allow for integration into the home environment.

Mags Frazier, Speech-Language Pathologist

Communication is the root of everything: how we relate to each other, build community, state our needs, talk about our feelings, tell jokes, interview for jobs, and share memories. Sometimes we communicate using our words. Other times we may communicate using a device such as our iPad or phone, sharing pictures, sharing music, playing a...

Mags Frazier, Speech-Language Pathologist

Communication is the root of everything: how we relate to each other, build community, state our needs, talk about our feelings, tell jokes, interview for jobs, and share memories. Sometimes we communicate using our words. Other times we may communicate using a device such as our iPad or phone, sharing pictures, sharing music, playing a game, laughter, or simply a hug. My role as an SLP is to cultivate the best multi-modal communication approach for you and your family. I will listen attentively to help you say what you want to say when you want to say it. Your thoughts and feelings matter. I want to hear your wonderful ideas and so does the world!

Front Desk Coordinator

People us (they really do)

I’ve been taking my (now) 3 year old to the Hello Clinic for several months now, and I could not be happier. As a mom, it’s hard to know something is a struggle for your child, and knowing his goals and celebrating his achievements along the way (alongside Jenny!) is so reassuring. I would recommend the Hello Clinic to anyone and everyone I know!

– A., clinic parent

I wholeheartedly recommend the Hello Clinic to anyone who needs a speech therapist or occupational therapist. Everyone here is amazing! I’ll never be able to adequately express my gratitude for how much they’ve done for my son. They are the best!

– Grace, clinic parent

We wanted to let you know how impressed we have been with you! You are the best person we have worked with for Oscar. He even mentioned how much you are helping him.

Jon, clinic parent

 

Clara loves it, absolutely her favorite therapies we are taking part in. I am learning a lot by observing. She is so eager to do whatever Christina has planned for their time. It was amazing to see. The visual on the whiteboard was *chefs kiss*.

– Sarah, clinic parent
