Many of our children are not born with the tools they need for development, but with hard work and a team behind them (that's us), they learn to thrive. Abeille Speech + Feeding Therapy offers communication intervention and feeding therapy services to children between the ages of birth to 5. My programs have a strong focus on parent coaching and evidence based intervention in a child's natural environment.
"I ABSOLUTLEY recommend Kayla for your little one's speech and feeding needs. She worked with my extrememly speech delayed son for about a year. He went from having a handful of words to having a vocabulary of over 100! She gave me helpful tips and tricks to use with him to help him continue to flourish. He just turned 4 and never stops talking! Kayla is so patient and has the magical touch to get kiddos to talk through play"
According to the most up to date research on early intervention, children gain the most skills when therapy is embedded into daily routines in their natural environment. I've been through years of training in the areas of communication and feeding development, but YOU are your child's world. That means, we see the most growth when we can coach parents on evidence based strategies that can be carried over into their day to day lives. I know. You're not a therapist, and this sounds like a lot of pressure. But, I promise I will be there to help you every step of the way. We are a team, and I believe in you!
