Speech Tactics today is Charlotte’s premier bilingual clinic for comprehensive speech pathology and occupational therapy services for children and adults. We utilize innovative and evidence-based therapeutic interventions to help to enhance functional and effective communication skills, as well as improve sensory, motor and cognitive abilities. Our dedicated and highly skilled therapists provide diagnostic testing, evaluations, and remediation for a variety of communication concerns, cognitive impairments, and sensory/motor disorders.
This year was the start of something great! This was the year Speech Tactics was born. I had only hoped to start working with a couple of private clients while continuing to manage my full-time job at the hospital. In 2012, the goal was to use my clinical skills as way to reach and connect with families in the community who would benefit from speech & language therapy.
Speech Tactics opened its first office space of approximately 275 square feet in 2012. In this space, parents found a warm and cozy environment to express their thoughts and feeling regarding their child’s communication abilities.
Speech Tactics hired its first two employees and moved into a larger office space to accommodate the growing number of kids we were servicing at that time. Our office space quickly transformed into a family-like atmosphere where parents were able to meet and converse with each other.
Three Years Later
Our clinical staff increased to 7 therapists. At this time we envision taking Speech Tactics to another level by increasing parent involvement, community outreach, support groups, and by adding occupational therapy!
And The Journey Continues…
Speech Tactics has reached another growth milestone! We moved into a larger office space to accommodate our full staff of speech therapists and occupational therapists, as well as the 300 plus families we serve throughout our community. This year we embarked on a journey to not only provide our families with excellent therapy services, but we also worked hard to assist our families with other resources available to them in the community.
