We are excited to keep in touch with this most recent edition of PediaSpeech Services, Inc. newsletter

As always, we'd like to thank you for the trust you give us as we treat your precious children. Our goal is for the children to properly learn in a fun atmosphere, and we achieve this goal every session!

Thoughts From the Director

Jennifer McCullough M.S. CCP-SLP


"We are so honored to be able to work with you and your children. The last couple of years have been a roller coaster and we all have tried hard to manage and ‘make the best of it’. Luckily our kids are much more resilient than us adults and with a little guidance will come out even stronger than before. I cannot tell you how proud I am of the staff we have here at PediaSpeech. We truly are a ‘family’ and it shows every day as we pour our heart and souls into helping each and every child that walks through our door. Therapists knock on my door all of the time worried about one of their little ones, they think hard on how to make sure they are providing the absolute best care they can to our clients. They work together with one another, putting their egos away if someone has a better plan to make it just right for their client. I am in awe and truly, truly proud to be a part of this team. Together with each and every one of our parents we are molding these children’s futures and we take that as an awesome responsibility. So thank you for trusting us."

Feeding Treatment: A Team Approach

For treating babies that require feeding therapy, there are no cases that are similar. That’s why it’s important to have a technique that uses multiple perspectives to both evaluate and treat each case. 

This is exactly what has been initiated at PediaSpeech recently...

Our Current COVID Protocol


Please Note: All Therapists will wear Face Masks/Shields during

the entire therapy session unless otherwise agreed up

  • Our waiting area remains closed as we continue to practice safe social distancing.
  • Parents will need to come to the front door area and wait outside for the therapist to bring them in for services at their scheduled appointment time.
  • We prefer that only the child attend the therapy session if possible. (Wearing masks if they can tolerate). 
  • If a parent must attend to assist in facilitation, he/she is always required to wear a face mask and will be seated in the treatment room only.
  • Therapists will take the child to wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds at the beginning and end of sessions before bringing the child back to your vehicle.

CDC Approves COVID Vaccine for Kids Six Months to Five Years Old

Because young children are now able to get the coronavirus vaccine, we plan on opening up the PediaSpeech waiting area to maximum capacity on August 1st. Masks will be required while in the waiting room area once it opens up. To read more about this approval, click the button presented.
