My Story

I hope to become a pediatric speech language pathologist, because I feel the job aligns with my strengths! I have always enjoyed working with kids, value helping people develop and grow, and love to build relationship. Getting to walk alongside the kids in their journey is so precious! I decided to work as a TA to get more hands on experience in pediatric settings and to get to watch the amazing therapists here.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
