I am currently a speech pathologist at Chicago Public Schools where I work with students ranging in age from preschool to high school. I have previous experience with a variety of communication needs including but not limited to articulation/phonological disorders, apraxia of speech, fluency disorders, and social and pragmatic difficulties. Additionally, I have experience with utilizing AAC devices and sign language to further support functional communication. I love helping my students develop their speech and language skills through interaction, play, and structured activities!

We are so grateful to Jenna for her wonderful help for our family. We loved welcoming her into our home every week, and our daughter was truly excited to see her each time. Jenna was an expert in helping our daughter perfect all of her sounds, with fun, engaging, age appropriate activities. She was also great at reading when our daughter was restless and needed more activity at the beginning of a session, or was bored or tired and needed to change up the activity. Our oldest daughter ended up being jealous of these sessions, but Jenna was thoughtful enough to even show up with small gifts for both girls throughout our time together. We're thrilled with our daughter's progress and wish the next family lucky enough to work with Jenna well.

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!
