Reasons to consider speech therapy
…My child has behaviors (hitting, biting, yelling, crying) because he is frustrated that he can’t say what he wants to say.
…I can’t understand what my child is trying to tell me, and other adults have an even harder time.
…I have no idea what my child did today at school because he struggles to tell me about his day.
…My child struggles with reading and writing, even though he can have a conversation with me.
…My child struggles to relate to other children and make friends at school.
…I prepare two different meals for family dinner to make sure my child will eat something.
…We seldom eat at a restaurant because it’s so hard to find foods that will appeal to my child.
…Mealtimes are stressful. My child doesn’t trust me with food.
Hi! I’m Tamra Mullen M.S. CCC-SLP.
I provide bilingual (English/Spanish) speech therapy in Tucson. I have extensive experience in working with infants through school aged children, with a specialty in bilingual language acquisition, evaluation and treatment. I provide individual speech therapy with a heavy emphasis on parent/caregiver education and training to promote continued language growth within the home.
I became a speech language pathologist because my passion is helping children and parents communicate together. Raising kids is hard enough, (I know, I have four!) and it’s stressful when a child simply cannot clearly state their wants and needs…to you, or to a teacher or daycare provider. Communication doesn’t need to be your struggle.
That’s where I come in. I am here to support you and guide you on this journey to helping your child overcome breakdowns in communication. I want you and your child to bond and enjoy each other through your shared communication. Let’s work together to help communication get better.
I look forward to guiding your family on this journey to improving your child’s communication.
