In business since 2001, Speech & Occupational Therapy of North Texas has provided excellent pediatric therapy to our community for over two decades. It has always been our goal to create a nurturing and welcoming environment for clients and families.
Each of our locations strives to keep a personal small clinic atmosphere, while at the same time providing the highest quality evidence-based treatment and family training. While we want to remain personal in our services, we couple this goal with up-to-date information technology systems demanded by healthcare today.
Speech & Occupational Therapy of North Texas started in 2001 with a small clinic in downtown Plano, where the owner at the time, Anne Bramlett, grew up. Anne became a speech-language pathologist in private practice because she wanted to help serve not only children with disabilities but also their families She understood the importance of a team approach and the importance of providing exceptional services for both families and children because she has an adult son on the autism spectrum.

Specializing in children; Partnering with families!
Speech & OT of North Texas utilizes a partnership model for therapy. Evidence-based practices have established that children make the most significant strides in therapy when the families are an integral part of the process. This is why we ask that a family or approved caregiver join the therapist for the last 5 minutes of treatment. In some situations a family may want to stay longer. This time helps the family to better understand the strategies and structure that lead to success.
The therapist typically will provide “homework” or activities to be addressed between sessions. This “teamwork” time also gives the therapist and family the freedom to discuss progress, concerns and new strategies in a confidential environment. Following this model is the best use of a family’s time and financial resources.
We are here to help your child meet their greatest potential within our scope of practice!
Listed below are a few Client Testimonials received by Speech & Occupational Therapy over the years!
When my son started here at Speech and Occupational Therapy he was very late in his speech; almost 3 and still not talking. My boy is now 5 ½ years old and is able to speak in short sentences and is holding his own in Kindergarten. In OT he has become much better with his eye-hand coordination. The therapists here are very patient and genuinely care about the children that receive services here.
I highly recommend S and OT of North Texas.
