I am currently a speech language pathologist at Chicago Public schools where I work with students ranging in age from preschool to eighth grade. I have previous experience evaluating and treating a variety of communication needs including articulation/phonology disorders, apraxia of speech, receptive/expressive language disorders, social communication disorders, fluency disorders, and dyslexia and reading difficulties. I have attended trainings in the area of AAC to help students develop functional communication. I love learning about the individual needs and interests of my students to develop treatment plans that will maximize their ability to communicate. I believe that collaboration with all stakeholders in a child’s life is instrumental to developing his or her speech and language skills!
When I’m not running around the city with my dog Aspen, you can find me reading a new book, walking on the lakefront path, or at the ballet!

Sarah is always prepared with engaging and fun lessons for my three year old. She is patient and genuinely proud when he makes progress. I couldn’t recommend Sarah enough!! -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!
