During these trying times, Speech & OT continues to lift each and every person affected by the Coronavirus in our prayers.

 

Given the racial issues our society is facing today, we want to ensure the children of tomorrow grow up with a different (and better) set of values, respect, love and acceptance for each other. 

 

Join us in being proactive in making sure our future is so much better than our past.

Speech & OT wants to support the anti-racist movement and a better future for our neighbors. To this end, Speech & OT is matching donations, made by employees and families, of books that talk about celebrating diversity and anti-racism, and donating the books to Project Transformation of North Texas. Project Transformation’s primary focus is engaging children, college-age young adults, and communities in purposeful relationships through summer camps and afterschool programming that emphasizes literacy for children in low-income communities. We are super excited to partner with them to help make a positive impact on our world and our future!  If you want join us in being proactive in making sure our future is better than our past, this is how it will work:

In business since 2001, Speech & Occupational Therapy of North Texas has provided excellent pediatric therapy to our community for over a decade. 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.

Our History

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.

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!

This is such a great place! The staff is very professional & have an amazing heart for those with special needs. We’ve had a wonderful experience in the years my son has been in therapy here & he’s made wonderful progress. I do wonder if he gives his therapist the urge to have a child, too, because we’ve had 2 leave to start their family; however, the transition has always been made smoothly with every accommodation to make sure he stays on track & continues to be successful. I just can’t say enough about how much we love this place. He wouldn’t be as far along as he is without them! We feel blessed by their services!
