Planting the foundation for children to grow!
Speech and/or language therapy helps your child improve articulation, the way we say sounds, receptive language, how we understand and process information, expressive language, which includes vocabulary, grammar, utterance/sentence length, and functional communication, as well as pragmatic language, the way we socially use verbal and nonverbal cues to communicate and engage with peers and caregivers.
Dyslexia intervention is appropriate for children with or without a formal diagnosis; all struggling readers would benefit from support! Intervention incorporates systematic, multi-sensory instruction to improve your child's phonemic awareness, decoding, fluency, and comprehension.
Jamie is a speech-language pathologist in Houston, Texas. She graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a bachelors degree in Communication Science and Disorders, as well as from the University of Texas at Dallas with a masters degree in Communication Disorders. She has been a licensed speech-language pathologist, specializing in children, for over 9 years. She has completed Reading Readiness and Basic Language Skills through Neuhaus Education Center and is currently pursuing her license to become a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT) aka Dyslexia Therapist!
Jamie enjoys helping children and their families achieve success in their language development. She has completed training in Picture Exchange Communication (PECS), DIR/FloorTime, Kaufman Apraxia of Speech, and the SCERTS model (Social Communication, Emotional Regulation, Transnational Supports). She has also received extensive training in early feeding development during her time in home health.
Over the years, she has become increasingly passionate about reading and dyslexia intervention as her husband, Michael, is dyslexic. Together, they have explored the challenges families and students face, both children and adults, when reading is difficult. She has found great joy in utilizing her knowledge of speech and language development to continue to support reading fluency and comprehension as reading is a form of language, just written!
In her free time, Jamie loves snuggling on the couch with her fur babies, dog Buddy and cat Mr. Freckles, learning how to drive a tractor or weld some metal at the family farm, and always getting in some exercise through crossfit, yoga, and running!
