Professional Speech & Language Services

Providing communication skills for all seasons of life...

About Us

Professional Speech and Language Services, PLLC, was formed in August, 2007. Our team of therapists has worked together for the past 10 years, meeting the needs of patients and their families at the Stanley Speech and Hearing Clinic of Stephen F. Austin State University. We served as faculty members there where our duties included instructing and supervising graduate students in the clinic. Collectively we total over 80 years of experience in the field of speech-language pathology. At this stage of our clinical careers, we continue to put our clients’ needs first in a nurturing environment that will equip them with improved communication skills.

All of our therapists hold master’s degrees in Speech-Language Pathology and are licensed by the State of Texas and certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. We hold Texas Teacher Certificates in Elementary Education, Deaf Education, Learning Disabilities and Special Education. In addition, one of our therapists is certified in the Lee Silverman Voice Training program for patients with Parkinson disease . Therapists also hold certificates in the Hanen language stimulation program and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS).
