Our FOUNDERS

Erin Vollmer

Erin Vollmer

MS, CCC-SLP

Erin is a certified and licensed pediatric speech language pathologist originally from Traverse City, Michigan. She received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Speech Language Pathology from Marquette University. She has practiced in the Chicago area for over 18 years; treating children in a variety of settings including schools, early intervention and private practice. Erin credits her desire to become a speech pathologist to her uncle, Bob Gartland, her dad’s twin brother. Bob had Cerebral Palsy and communicated using a simple communication board attached to his wheelchair and an adapted typewriter. Erin knew that she wanted to surround herself with people like Bob and studied speech pathology in order to work toward making communication easier and more accessible for children with disabilities.

Erin is a member of the American Speech Language Hearing Association, the Illinois Speech Language Hearing Association and the American Academy of Private Practice in Speech Pathology and Audiology. She lives in the northern suburbs with her husband, four children, and two English Bulldogs.

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
