Hi! I am Danielle and I am the owner of Empowering Connections Speech Therapy. I have been a speech-language pathologist since 2017. I have worked in a variety of settings including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation facilities, schools, and as a graduate clinician supervisor for Baylor University.
I obtained my Bachelor's of Science (B.S.) in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of the Incarnate Word and my Master's of Science (M.S.) in Speech-Language Pathology from Texas Woman's University. I maintain the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) through the American Speech Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and hold a Texas License in Speech-Language Pathology.
At Empowering Connections Speech Therapy, Danielle's goal is to help children develop the speech and language skills necessary to fulfill their basic human right of communication in order to build lasting connections with those around them.
After being challenged with creating the first playground communication board for my previous district, Danielle realized that these boards should be a staple on every playground. Danielle wanted to make the process of obtaining a playground communication board simpler for SLPs, schools, and communities and to open up a multitude of communication opportunities for children during their most important work, play.
Communication boards are a form of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) comprised of core and fringe vocabulary. Playground communication boards are designed to connect children by offering a means of sharing thoughts and ideas, asking for help, taking turns, and expressing needs and emotions in a way that is understandable to all. They promote a culture of belonging and inclusivity while providing communication supports to individuals with a variety of communicative needs.
Empowering Connections offers communication boards on vinyl banners and aluminum metal. Both materials come with grommets or holes for installation purposes.
4ft W x 3ft H Vinyl Banner: $175
4ft W x 3ft H Aluminum: $300
Need a board for an area that is not a playground? Want a different size? Need to add content? Our boards are completely customizable to fit your project's needs.
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
At this time, we do not accept insurances. This allows us to start seeing clients immediately and provide sessions designed to meet your child's specific needs. We can provide documentation of services that can be provided to insurance (by client) for reimbursement based on your benefits. Reimbursement from insurance is not guaranteed and is dependent on client's benefits policy.
Empowering Connections is dedicated to providing individualized evidence based speech and language therapy to children in a fun and relaxed environment. We are committed to growing and enhancing children's speech and language skills so that they can be fully functional members of their community.
Your child may need speech therapy if they are demonstrating difficulty articulating words clearly or have difficulty producing specific speech sounds. Their speech should be 50% intelligible by 2 and 75% intelligible by age 3. You may notice that your child is demonstrating difficulty with formulating clear coherent sentences to express their thoughts. Your child may have difficulty answering questions, following directions or engaging and participating in conversations.
