Miranda Padilla MS, CCC-SLP

Bilingual Speech Language Pathologist

Miranda Padilla M.S., CCC-SLP is an IL certified bilingual speech-language pathologist with experience providing school-based therapy to children ages Pre-K-12th grade, as well as adult clients in an acute rehab setting. Since beginning her career in the field of speech-language pathology, she has practiced in preschool, elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as within the hospital setting. Her area of specialty is working with bilingual (Spanish–English) children with speech and language impairments. Miranda stumbled into speech language pathology while she was touring colleges. On one of those fateful visits, a small group tour was offered for anyone interested in the health service field of speech and language pathology or audiology. Given that she had never heard of either of these careers, she decided to explore the options. Since then, she has fallen in love with the field and has never looked back.
