GET TO KNOW ME

Hey! I’m Melissa Oziel and I am a registered speech-language pathologist with a Masters of Science from Columbia University in New York City. I am your language and executive function coach and thrive on creating programs that build independence. I am bilingually certified and have worked extensively with hundreds of families, conducting assessments and treatment procedures to culturally diverse communities. The vision of SLAT is to ensure collaboration, competence and an overall holistic view of each and every client. The clients are of utmost importance, and together with the client and their families, we, at SLAT, strive to build a love of communication.

But… I am not only a boss-lady, or clinical speech-language pathologist. I am a mom of four children who inspire my work greatly. Each, with their own personalities, characteristics, and set of challenges, I am able to use the knowledge and experience that I have gained from my clients, as well as my family to ensure the success of every client.

From one parent to another, you can depend on me to create a strong collaborative partnership, which expects ownership, open communication and a little tough love, in order to empower our children to reach their goal of communication. Let us build strong, fearless children, who see their differences as gifts.
