Based in San Diego, Little Rose Speech Therapy is a pediatric private practice offering an array of speech therapy services from infancy to school age. Research shows that early intervention that occurs in a child’s natural environments have the most profound impacts—which is why all of our therapy sessions are in a child’s home, daycare/school, or community (e.g parks).
In-person speech therapy services are available in the following Northern San Diego regions/communities: Carmel Mountain Ranch, Scripps Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, Del Sur, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Valley, Poway, Del Mar, and more*. Speech and language therapy to all California residents outside of these areas are also available via teletherapy.
Little Rose Speech Therapy uses effective learning principles and a child’s natural learning environment to help bridge the gap between your child’s communication delays to successful interactions with family members and peers. With a foundational core of strong evidence-based treatment and a passion for early intervention, the goal is to plant the seed that ultimately helps your child thrive.
