While evidence-based techniques are crucial, Sonia believes that speech therapy should be more than teaching techniques.
Sonia completed her Master’s degree at Midwestern University. She has taken courses focused on picky eating, sleep-disordered breathing (i.e. snoring, sleep-apnea), tongue ties, sensory integration, oral habits, and myofunctional therapy. Sonia trained in the PROMPT technique for treating motor speech disorders. She has created and led a stuttering enrichment program for the Los Angeles Unified School District. She is licensed as a speech-language pathologist in New York and California.
Sonia has worked with clients in the areas of: child language, motor speech disorders, stuttering, and speech sound disorders. She has provided therapy and supervision in a variety of settings, including: inpatient clinic, outpatient clinic, private clinic, home health, and schools.
"Our son has made more progress working with Sonia than with any other provider. She has helped improve his speech clarity so that our family and his teacher can better understand him. Sonia works well with our son and has been so helpful to our family. We are thankful for her!" -Parent of C.B.
"I work with a child that is on the spectrum and he can be really challenging at times when it comes to doing work, but Sonia does such an amazing job with him. She is genuine with a kind spirit and very dedicated. Sonia has definitely helped him so much with developing his speech and using functional communication and as well as interactions. His speech has improved a lot and we are grateful to have Sonia in our lives. We appreciate you for all that you do!" -Team E.I.
