Speech Language Pathologists

  • Tara Gallagher


    I have almost 20 years of experience working as a speech-language pathologist with children of all ages. I specialize in working with children who use hearing aids and/or cochlear implants to learn spoken language. Learning auditory verbal and listening techniques early in my career has allowed me to help children with all speech and language needs meet their goals.  I take pride in knowing I set up a fun, productive, structured yet nurturing environment. Families are often part of my sessions, as they are the child's best teacher. I love spending time with my family traveling to other countries and tropical islands. Sitting on the beach and listening to the waves is my happy place.

    I have over 12 years of experience as a pediatric speech-language pathologist working with children from birth through college specializing in working with children who are deaf or hard of hearing in both auditory verbal as well as total communication approaches. Finding the individualized path to improved communication to make every student successful is my passion. Through this focus on auditory development and auditory support strategies, my approach is beneficial not only to students with hearing loss but also to all students presenting with speech sound disorders and language delays/disorders.  I take pride in integrating the needs of the whole child, including their family support and educational environment to foster success and generalization across their entire day.

  • Alyssa Spampinato


    I always knew I wanted a career that would allow me to make an impact in someone's life whether that meant helping my client say their first word for the first time, helping them be able to find their voice, or helping a parent find the right resources or teach them how to enhance their child’s language skills at outside of the therapy room. I could give you 100 reasons why I love being an SLP, but to keep it short: no two clients are the same! I love being able to work with diverse clients with diverse needs, especially in a world that is far from black and white. I love spending time with my family and friends during my spare time.

    I chose the field of speech-language pathology because of the large impact that speech and language have on a person's everyday life. It's how we express ourselves, make meaningful connections with others, learn new things, and so much more. Being a part of someone's journey on that path is so fulfilling. I love working with children and being able to provide language opportunities, naturally. In my spare time, I love hanging out with my mini-me, catching a movie, or trying a new restaurant.

  • Regina Soares dos Santos


    Supporting children to achieve their personal best has been a passion of mine for over 20 years. I approach all my young clients with respect by meeting them where they are, identifying personal strengths, and leveraging these to achieve results. Since motivation is key for speech and language re/habilitation, parents play a key role in therapy by cheering on their child and continuing to carry over at home. As a parent of a child who received intensive therapy, I know firsthand the complex feelings that arise when raising and supporting our children. I firmly believe in perception preceding production in therapy and that a rich linguistic interactive environment is critical to support language learning. I look forward to working with you and your child and I am honored to be part of their journey!
