Diana Koranda, M.A. CCC-SLP
Speech Language Pathologist
My philosophy for speech therapy is built on child and family-focused treatment! Our kiddos are going through some of the most amazing, exciting, and challenging changes in their lives; learning and growing! They are the leaders of their own journeys, and we are there to support them in a fun, positive, and creative way. When our kids feel in control of their learning, they can reach new heights. Working collaboratively with families to help their children grow daily, not just on “speech day,” is the key to great skill carryover. Watching a child become excited and proud of their accomplishments is what fuels my work as a speech therapist. I love seeing my clients light up when they realize they have finally gotten a skill they’ve worked hard to achieve.
