Words by the Sea provides timely assessment and treatment services either in a professional clinic setting and/or virtually. While individuals may self-refer, referrals from physicians, educators, and other healthcare providers are accepted.

Individualized services to meet your needs.

Together with the client and family, Words by the Sea provides direct assessment and treatment services in a professional clinic setting and/or via teletherapy. We do, however, recognize this might not be the most suitable location for all clients. As such, we do offer off-site visits when available, (i.e., daycare, home, school, etc.) depending on each client’s needs.

Assessment & treatment can be provided in a variety of areas, inluding:

• Articulation/Phonology (speech sounds)

• Infant/Toddler Language Development

• Receptive and/or Expressive Language

• Fluency (stuttering)

• Phonological Awareness (building blocks to reading and writing)

• Voice (vocal hygiene)

• Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

Happy Parents

As a parent Dana is extremely responsive and accommodating, I explained my work schedule and how a set schedule would be best and once one opened in convenient time for my schedule, she booked me in. I couldn’t have asked for a better more responsive speech pathologist; she gave us as parents the tools we needed to help our child succeed. Explaining how speech therapy works with words, small phrases, sentences and last is conversations. I feel extremely lucky that Dana is our speech pathologist, I really don’t know where we would be without her.

Wonderful, amazing, professional, and fun for kids! We found Dana by chance on a random mom group someone else was asking for speech pathologists’ recommendation and Dana’s name came up a lot from different people. We reached out for S Blends (snowman, star, square) within 3 sessions (1.5 hours!) we already were noticing the differences. Fast forward 6 months and Star is “star” and not “tar” they are coming naturally we still see her for minor corrections now. Dana is engaging with kids even on zoom she makes speech therapy fun like they are not learning or on a screen.  She is amazing at encouraging and praising how well they are doing giving virtual high-fives. 

Dana, results driven, perceptive, insightful, highly skilled and charismatic are all words I use to describe Dana. Dana assisted my son 9 years ago and she has been my go to for anything speech and language related ever since. I have been working in the public school system for over 20 years as a specialist teacher and have met with and worked alongside many speech pathologists throughout the years. Dana is many steps above pathologists in her field. Not only do I choose Dana for my families and friends needs but also refer many challenging cases her way as I know she can always get the desired results no matter how severe the challenges could be. Dana is a true expert in her field and committed to the highest standard of excellence. Dana is also an absolute delight to work with. Students and individuals of all ages rave about how amazing and fun Dana is to work with. I give Dana my highest recommendation. If you want results delivered in a fun endearing supportive package Dana is your person. 

My experience with Words by the Sea has been amazing! Dana is very knowledgeable and experienced in her field. She has the ability to motivate children to improve and do their best at all times, always making sessions fun and interactive. I highly recommend Dana and her services both as a parent and an educator.
