Joanna Osos, M.A. 

Speech Language Pathologist

As a speech-language pathologist, I value a holistic and natural approach to communication and feeding that allows a child to build skills through play, relationships, and meaningful experiences. I have found that the best approach is to look at all the unique needs that children may have. I love working with children and their parents, as they are the most essential people in their child’s life. The most rewarding part of my job is assisting families in their journey as they develop skills that will improve their lives for years to come.

Since receiving her Master’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Elmhurst University in 2018, Joanna has worked primarily in clinical settings and Early Intervention.

She specializes in early language, speech sound disorders, feeding, and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). Joanna loves collaborating with a variety of specialists to help build a solid foundation for each child to grow.
