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. My practice specializes 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. The balance of exciting activities and a child-directed approach as well as a a lifetime of experience in child development and behavioral modification allows me to create an environment where all of the child's needs can be supported to allow for success. I take pride in integrating the needs of the whole child, including their family support and educational environment in order to foster success and generalization across their entire day. In addition to my own practice, I am passionate about providing trainings and educating other professionals on how to better support the auditory needs of their students presenting with a wide array of auditory access difficulties.

    I am a devoted speech-language pathologist who has always had an immense passion for helping and caring for others. I have a wide range of experience working with students in grades PreK-12. My current niche is working with preschool and elementary school-aged children. I strive to support my students in reaching their speech and language goals while providing them with an enriching and positive learning environment. I strongly believe that communication with other school professionals and collaborating with the child’s family is significant for the optimization and carryover of skills. I aim to work together with all team members to advocate and help my students grow and attain their full potential. My goal is to foster communication through a fun and enjoyable learning style, bringing smiles to my students’ faces. When I am not providing therapy, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing/watching sports, taking walks on the beach, and cooking/baking.

    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'm an avid gym goer.

  • Rachel Meadows


    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.

    I'm a dedicated Speech Language Pathologist with a heart for helping children. Originally from New York, I spent 7 transformative years in Florida, where I completed my education and clinical fellowship. My experience includes working with children who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as those with expressive and receptive language delays. I've spent the past year at a charter school, guiding students aged 6-17.

I firmly believe in the vital role parents play in their child's development and actively involve them in the therapy process. My goal is to make a profound impact on the lives of these little ones, helping them conquer communication challenges and unlock their full potential! When I'm not at work, you'll find me exploring new places, reading a good book, staying active, and spending time with family and friends.
