Hi, I'm Connie Beaumont
Speech and feeding related disorders are personal to me. I know first-hand the positive changes to quality of life my services offer. From my own childhood history as an extremely picky eater with food sensitivities, my parenting experience with a child with speech delays, and the process of navigating care for children with tongue and lip ties, I truly understand these challenges from a personal and professional standpoint.
I am the mother of three delightfully unique children. With my first child, feeding was a breeze. Breastfeeding came naturally and easily. I expected the same effortless experience when my second child was born and was stunned when feeding was painful...for both of us. As my child struggled with gastroesophageal reflux, obvious discomfort, poor sleep, and hours of crying, I was exhausted and worried. I literally saw a dozen different doctors and specialists to try to understand why feeding was so difficult this time. None of them could figure out what was wrong, not even me as a speech-language pathologist. Finally, it was my own continuing education to become an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist that helped my treatment team properly diagnose the root of the problem…in our case this was tongue and lip ties. After treatment, many of our struggles resolved and our breastfeeding journey continued successfully.
My passion for helping families succeed in their own speech and feeding journeys was born as a result of these personal and professional experiences. I am acutely aware of the profound improvement a knowledgeable advocate can make in transcending feeding and speech challenges, which is why I work so hard for my patients and fellow professionals. I take a family-centered approach to treating speech, language, and feeding disorders. I emphasize the importance of caregiver training and family involvement in therapy, which is the most effective strategy for helping children thrive. I am happy to treat all ages and I am especially passionate about helping infants, toddlers, and their caregivers flourish.
