I have been practicing as a speech-language pathologist in clinical settings, schools, childcare centers, and homes since 2012. For the last several years I have specialized in stuttering but I also have extensive experience working with articulation and phonological delays, receptive and expressive language delays, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices, and children and adolescents with autism.

As a person who stutters who initially had planned a different career path, I personally experienced the impact that a speech disorder can have on one’s life. It has been my career goal to support and empower my clients to communicate openly and confidently regardless of their speech or language disorder.

Mr. Whelan is great and [my daughter] is very comfortable talking to him. -TherapyWorks Parent
We love Alex and are very happy with the therapy so far! My daughter really likes him too! -TherapyWorks Parent
Alex is GREAT! He is very fun and easy to work with. He and my son love sports so he integrates sports analogies into the articulation lessons. He works hard to help me find a way to help my son, so that we can practice our lessons at home efficiently. -TherapyWorks Parent
We are with TherapyWorks for three years. Very nice experience. We were really lucky to be referred to Alex Whelan. He is highly professional, very effective and simple fun! Our son made significant improvement since he started working with TherapyWorks. He is always looking forward to his therapy sessions, keep saying how much help he is getting working with Alex and even asked for more sessions! Definitely recommend! -TherapyWorks Parent

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!
