Getting Help

The Bay Area Speech Studio specializes in the following:




Social Thinking Skills


Dyslexia & Dysgraphia Support


Auditory and Language Processing 


Executive Functioning Strategies 

I cannot say enough good things about the progress my son's speech made while Amanda was working with him.  As a kindergartener with boundless energy, he eagerly looked forward to his appointments.  Amanda tailored the lessons to him and  her positive attitude and fun games made the time spent with her the highlight of my son's week.  We loved her flexibility in working with our schedules and allowing us late-in-the-day appointments. By coming to our house, our son was comfortable and ready to learn. Amanda kept us in the loop on how he was doing and assigned homework every week. He quickly progressed and was even able to rock a speaking role in front of everyone at a recent school program.  I highly recommend Amanda and Bay Area Speech Studio -- our son is going to miss her so much!
