Sharon has experience with the assessment of and intervention for speech-language delays of all ages from toddlers and school-age students through geriatrics, including delays or challenges with expressive and receptive language, cognition, reading comprehension, auditory processing, fluency, voice, writing, executive functioning, phonology and articulation, and pragmatic language. Sharon specializes in work with adolescents and teenagers in middle school and high school with intellectual and language learning disabilities, ASD, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, and emotional disturbances. She targets executive functioning challenges, social thinking, and writing and conversational skills with these clients. The goal is to help these clients self-advocate, problem-solve, and use critical thinking skills as they work towards college and career readiness. Sharon’s dynamic approach incorporates using tools from her psychology background to develop a strong rapport with her clients, and help them identify and work through any challenges that they may encounter throughout the therapeutic process. Therapy is geared towards accommodating individual learning styles, acknowledging the critical role of collaboration with other service providers and family members, while incorporating the strengths and interests of her clients.
