Jessica Brody

I have 18 years of experience working in multiple settings helping clients communicate across the lifespan.  I have been fortunate to gain experience working with individuals in a variety of settings including public schools, private clinics, early intervention, sub-acute rehab facilities, acute inpatient, and most recently telehealth.   I have experience treating individuals with impairments related to articulation, language, voice, fluency, swallowing, Autism, ADHD, Social Language Disorders, and brain injury.  I enjoy working with and connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds.   I love teletherapy because I am able to see the client in their natural environment and empower parents and caregivers to help their loved ones reach their goals.   I look forward to partnering with you on your communication journey!

About

Jessica

What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment (or counseling/therapy)?

Asking for help is not always easy. It can be a difficult decision to seek the support of outside professionals and share your child and family’s personal challenges with them. I advise families that I work with to find a Speech Therapist that they connect with, feel comfortable with, and can openly ask questions and learn from.

What was your path to becoming a provider?

I knew early on that I wanted to work in a field that helped people. In college, I immediately connected with the field of Speech Pathology and quickly grew passionate about all of the different facets of this career. I initially worked in public schools serving children in preschool up to high school. I then transitioned into working with adults and geriatrics in a rehab setting helping individuals regain their communication and swallowing skills. After I had kids, I decided to venture back into the pediatric world and have since worked in Early Intervention, private clinics, and virtual schools.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

I have the unique insight of being an SLP and a parent to a child with learning differences. I understand the struggles a family goes through in wanting their child to succeed and how stressful the process can be. I aim to provide quality therapy while having fun and being supportive of the family’s needs.
