Stephanie Bolinder , M.S., CCC-SLP
Stephanie received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, Linguistics and Cognitive Sciences from Rutgers University, and her Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Boston University.
Stephanie is a passionate and enthusiastic pediatric speech-language pathologist. She has worked in a variety of settings including medical facilities, public schools, and private institutions. She has extensive experience assessing and treating children with feeding disorders, motor speech disorders, receptive and expressive language disorders, phonological disorders, velopharyngeal dysfunction and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). She is trained in PROMPT therapy, food chaining, Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES), Beckman oral motor exercises, Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP), and Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT).
Stephanie sees great value in a whole child, whole family approach. She believes that no single method is sufficient, and that the use of a multidisciplinary approach is the key to success. Stephanie utilizes her critical thinking skills during the therapeutic process, and is willing to step way “out of the box,” if she thinks it is necessary. Stephanie prides herself in the care and support she provides for all of the children and families she serves. She makes herself a part of each child’s “team” and never hesitates to lead the cheering section in celebration of a child’s achievements, no matter how big or small!
Stephanie is certified by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and is licensed to practice in the state of New Jersey. She also maintains her certification by the New Jersey Department of Education as a Speech-Language Specialist.
Stephanie lives in South Orange with her husband. She loves gardening, learning, and spending time with her family and friends.
