Sami Townsend MA, CCC-SLP

Speech Therapist

Hi there! My name is Sami and I am a longtime resident of the Chicago suburbs. I have been working as a school-based speech-language pathologist in the schools for the last two years with a focus on Early Childhood, Language Delays/Disorders, Autism, and AAC. I have experience working with children from toddlers to 18 years with a ride range of developmental, communication, and learning differences. In addition, I love working as an academic-based tutor for elementary and middle school students in my community. Partnering with families and empowering them to feel confident in their ability to help their child learn, grow, and communicate is one of my greatest passions. I am so looking forward to working with you and your family!
