Speech Therapists


Speech Therapy

Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists evaluate, diagnose and treat a variety of communication disorders that cause children to have difficulty expressing themselves or understanding others. They help with successful communication and engagement with peers and adults, as well as assist with feeding challenges, which are all key components in educational and social development. 

We provide a child-focus holistic approach in an evidence-based setting. Each session is tailored toward a child’s unique learning style, enabling them to reach their full potential.

Areas of Specialty include:  

  • Articulation

  • Expressive and Receptive Language

  • Central Auditory Processing Disorders

  • Cognitive Communication Disorders

  • Feeding and Swallowing

  • Social Aspects of Communication

  • Fluency

  • Voice and Resonance

  • Hearing

  • Communication Modalities


The pediatric speech therapists at The Center for Pediatric Therapy have been trained in PROMPT, Kaufman Praxis Method, Sara Johnson’s Oral Motor Programs for feeding and speech, DIR/Floortime and Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking Program.

“My family has benefitted from the outstanding care and attention that Karen Betheil brings to her clients. A consummate professional (and dedicated mom to her own daughters!) Karen cares deeply for her patients and their progress.


Karen has worked with both of my sons, each at different ages and stages, guiding them gently but firmly to shape their learning patterns. My children have found their voices! As a result of Karen’s structured and consistent delivery of therapeutic speech and language processing services, both of my boys excel in the areas of oral and written language expression. After years of difficulty, school work, together with both family and peer socialization, is now simply joyful."
