We loved Amanda’s whole-family approach to speech therapy. Our son looked forward to meeting with Amanda every week because she made it so much fun, and integrated his favorite activities and toys. Amanda goes above and beyond providing teachers, grandparents and finally, us parents - specific tips and tools to easily work with our son!

What parents say about
FUNctional Speech & Language LLC
Amanda is top in her field. As a mom, she understands parental concerns and how to communicate with your little one. And as a speech-language professional, she understands how to assess and formulate an action plan with a calm, focused approach to help them reach their goals. Highly recommend!

Amanda’s model of “parent coaching” was instrumental in educating and supporting me with my son’s speech delay. She is extremely knowledgeable and provided my family with a tremendous amount coaching, tools and resources so we can be successful in helping our son. She also was an advocate for our family, acting as advisor of sorts, while we navigated our way through the overwhelming processes involved with school evaluations, various specialists and other potential diagnoses. Perhaps one of the most impressive things I can say about Amanda how she was able to adapt and transition from in person therapy to tele-therapy sessions so quickly. She made sure there was no interruption in the therapy schedule and miraculously managed to keep my three year old engaged through an iPad. I highly recommend Amanda for private speech therapy.

She is innovative in using creative and playful strategies to motivate children to learn and works closely with parents to enable them to coach and reinforce skill development. As a Clinical Psychologist, I feel very fortunate to have Amanda in the Cranford area to provide as a resource to the children and families that I serve.
