  • How can I help your child succeed?

I am a licensed bilingual (English-Spanish) speech-language pathologist working primarily with pediatric clients who exhibit various communication delays and disorders. I enjoy serving culturally and linguistically diverse individuals and their families in educational, medical, and private settings. I received a Masters in Speech & Hearing Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received a Bachelors in Human Communication Sciences from Northwestern University. My research interest is in typical and atypical speech-language acquisition and development as it pertains to simultaneous and sequential Spanish-English bilinguals. My clinical experiences have included evaluation and treatment of children and adults with articulation / phonology, language, fluency, swallowing, and cognitive-communication disorders in schools, university clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and equine facilities. www.mspaulaslp.com

  • What are parents saying?
Paula is a wonderful speech therapist! She was warm and engaging and my daughter looked forward to their time together. I saw changes in my daughters articulation immediately. I highly recommend her! -TherapyWorks Parent
