New Beginnings has selected Cathlene Chapman and Katelyn Vera as our Therapists of the Year for 2021!

About Cathy

Cathy has always enjoyed working with children. Cathy states, “I fell in love with language and having children find their voice. I became interested in listening and language when I was in the school setting and was offered a classroom that was nothing but children with Augmentative Communication Devices.” Cathy has earned a certification of Listening and Spoken Language Specialist which includes coaching parents of children with hearing loss, that blossomed into coaching parents of children with disabilities.

About Katie

Katie knew she wanted to pursue a career dedicated to helping people. When she was in high school a family friend was entering the profession, which allowed her to have insight to speech pathology and everything that SLPs can do. She felt that a career as an SLP would be fulfilling by allowing her to help individuals of all ages with speech, language, and feeding difficulties.

Proven Speech Therapy Strategies

Our 4 Step Process to Overcoming Speech Impediments

 

STEP 1: Evaluation

During our initial appointment with your child we take the time to thoroughly evaluate their levels of speech and language. The results of the state approved comprehensive testing is tabulated and compared to the standards of speech for children your child’s age. We can perform our evaluation of your child in English or in Spanish depending on your child’s dominant language.

STEP 2: Diagnosis

Based on your child’s results during the comprehensive testing, our certified Speech Therapists diagnose your child’s speech and language condition. After the evaluation, the Speech Pathologist will share the diagnosis with you and answer all your questions regarding the treatment of your child’s condition.

STEP 3: Individualized Goals

Once the Speech Therapist has evaluated your child and has determined the diagnosis, a thorough report is prepared with all the Therapist’s findings and a plan of care is developed specifically for your child. This plan of care is sent to your child’s pediatrician for his/her review and approval.

STEP 4: Treatment

Depending upon your child’s severity and their individualized plan of care, your child may require an hour of therapy once or twice a week for three to six months. This therapy can be provided in English or in Spanish depending on your child’s dominant language. At the end of the period, your child is re-evaluated to determine progress and the therapy cycle begins again. This process continues until your child’s testing indicates that they no longer need Speech Therapy.

The staff is amazing. Our therapist Ms. Kendra, explained everything in detail after each session. I loved that she broke it all down for us to understand. She answered every question we had and gave us things to do at home. She went above and beyond to help my son meet his goals. I am so thankful for her help. I would recommend them to everyone.

Long post…sorry!!!Since the day our daughter was born, feeding her was a struggle. She cried, screamed, and was appearing to not latch properly (milk would leak, she would have horrible reflux after indicating air getting in, and was dropping in weight percentiles).Her pediatrician never bothered to check to see if she had a tie, but we knew something was wrong when we went in for her 6 month appointment and she had dropped two more percentiles (after slowly dropping each month before this) putting her in the 2nd growth percentile. All her doctor said was to feed her more.At this point she was only eating laying down in her crib, she wouldn’t allow us to hold and feed her, and 90% of her feeding was when she was asleep, meaning she was only passively eating.I took matters into my own hands and asked for referrals to speech therapy (for feeding purposes) and gastroenterology (formula, because I was exclusively pumping but with our daughter not eating, us spending 12+ hours a day trying to get her to eat, my supply was dropping and I was mentally, emotionally, and now physically unable to continue pumping).The moment we stepped foot into New Beginnings office, the speech therapist noticed our daughter had extreme lip and tongue ties preventing her from forming a proper latch and thus unable to eat. She had also developed a severe anxiety towards eating because of struggling to eat for 6 months.The therapist recommended we have both lip and tongue ties released ASAP and once done, we should start seeing immediate improvement.Two weeks later, we had the releases performed and instantly we noticed a huge improvement. When it would normally take us 2 hours to feed our daughter 2 ounces of milk, only minutes after the releases she ate 6 ounces in 5 minutes.This might sound dramatic, but both my husband and I cried from relief because it had been so stressful, time-consuming, and seemingly helpless to get our daughter to eat enough to be healthy until we had the releases performed. All of that stress was lifted off of our shoulders with a quick and simple procedure from which she quickly healed and has only continued to make constant improvements with her feeding skills each day.Without New Beginnings skill at identifying these ties our daughter would without a doubt continue to struggle to eat, drop in weight growth, and further develop an anxiety towards eating, which she has THANKFULLY digressed from and now loves to eat real food at 8 months old!Eating has become her favorite time of the day. She loves her squeeze pouches, touching and grabbing new shapes and textures of food and once she figures out they go to her mouth, there’s no stopping her from grabbing more and eating everything in front of her. Her bottle drinking skills have also dramatically improved. She only eats awake while we’re holding her which has been so amazing getting that bonding opportunity back.Thank you for such a simple solution to a huge problem we were facing!

Carla has been working with my daughter since she was diagnosed at 18months. My daughter has demonstrated so much progress and really enjoys showing up to therapy. The place is clean and safe for children who attend face to face sessions.I love how Carla is not only patience with my daughter but also provides tips on how I can help my little one at home. Now my daughter is able to communicate with three word sentences at the age of 2.

I struggled for a very long time to find a feeding therapist for my daughter because not every SLP will do feeding specially with older kiddos, however finding Kendra has been such a blessing in our lives as my daughter is starting to improve so much. Isabella loves going to therapy with her. Thank you so much!!!

I take my little one here, he's 3 and he loves his therapist Ms. Albina, he gets super exited when it's therapy day. I seen a lot of improvement on my kid's speech, we try to work at home with the material she provides but sincerely it's mostly thanks to her. She's so nice always explaining everything after every session if I have any questions or concerns she's always super informative, and also super understanding when unable to attend to the appointment and she will try to work whit you and your schedule. We are so happy a grateful for all her time and dedication. Highly recommended this place.  👌 ❤

Janette has helped our daughter out so much with her pronunciation and correctively sounding out specific words that she had difficulty with. She made our child feel comfortable and developed a one on one interaction that made it easy to communicate with her and offered positive feedback and promoted success on her part that boosted her confidence on having chats or conversations a lot more with people. Janette explains to the parents what is covered in full detail, and what is positive improvement, and what we should be working on at home. Would recommend New Beginning's and Janette as a speech therapist.

My husband and I are very pleased for having such a wonderful, caring, amazing, and a very patient speech therapist like Carla. She is such an amazing person and she is so patient with my son, he has gotten so attached to her, these past months. She was the one to tell me that my son had a tongue tie. Ever since my son had his surgery to remove it, I’ve seen by the way she works with him he has been improving so much with her, I’m amazed by her work, by the patience she has and how she’s always willing to work and advance classes with him so he can improve even more. She has taken the time to work with Him on Saturdays as well, which I’m very pleased because not a lot of people are willing to work like that. I Thank God for giving her this talent with kids, for the amount of patience she has and for the loving and caring person she is. I 100% recommended you to this place they really work with your kid, and I 100% recommended you with Carla she is amazing and you will be very pleased with her just like me and my husband are. Thank you Mrs. Carla for your wonderful work, May God bless you.

I have one word that describes New Beginnings Speech Therapy and its AMAZING! My son has been attending speech therapy for a little over two months and I have noticed tremendous progress. His speech therapist, Miss Janette is awesome. He looks forward to his weekly sessions with her. She is patient, kind, and has taught him various techniques to him him articulate his words more clearly. She goes out of her way to keep me informed with his progress and takes an extensive amount of time to explain what she’s seeing and what we can do to help him at home. I highly recommend New Beginnings!

The staff and therapists are amazing here! They are so kind, knowledgeable and not only help our kiddos so much but also help give the tools the parents need to help their child. Janette is always so joyful, and the encouragement she provides during the speech therapy appointments is just amazing. My son looks forward to his therapy appointments which is such a great change. I’m so thankful for Janette and the staff here at New Beginnings!

I have been bringing my 3 year old for speech therapy for 6 months with Miss Janette at the Rich Been location. My daughter has made a lot of progress, non only in her verbal communication, but her non-verbal as well. We have met and even exceeded some of the goals set for my little girl in this short period of time. Despite the resistance from my daughter and how difficult she can sometimes be, Miss Janette has always been so patient, positive and fun !
