Speech Therapy Services

Bridget Giraldo, MS, CCC-SLP is a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist and founder of Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC. Bridget founded Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC in 2017 to help reach clients who may not qualify for services but need them, for clients who respond well to individual/intense treatment, clients who need to supplement school therapy, and for clients who are seeking a personalized/warm therapy experience.

Our Unique Therapy Approach

Bridget has been praised her ability to connect quickly with children and adults and build a fun, trusting relationship. Communication skills are personal and difficult to work on, but with the right connection, meaningful progress can be made.

Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC treatment philosophy:

  • We only use research-based treatments that are tailored to each child’s individual needs. 
  • Personal 1:1 treatment is crucial to make meaningful progress in the quickest way possible.
  • We value the importance of early detection and early treatment so children do not have to play “catch-up” in elementary schools.
  • We value importance of family/caregiver involvement during treatment.
  • We offer a personalized touch to the therapy process so that children respond well to and love coming to therapy each week.
  • We believe that a therapist must truly get to know each client and their family in order to deliver the most effective treatment. Trust and connection are crucial during the therapy process!

Why Choose Private Therapy?

The NUMBER ONE BENEFIT of private speech therapy is the freedom to evaluate and design treatment plans that are exactly what each child needs at that moment in time.

No two people are alike; therefore, no two therapy program shall be alike either! There is no cookie cutter program out there that will work the same for every child. Every client will have a unique plan using evidence-based treatment techniques. 

Bridget takes pride in being able to continually assess a child throughout the therapy progress and update goals/techniques as often as needed to make the most meaningful and rapid progress.
