To provide child-centered communication support and therapy services for children with special needs in all areas of their life; home, family, community, education. We believe communication is a dynamic process and can be influenced by many aspects of a child’s development (problem-solving, behavior and social interactions, gross and fine motor development, family and community roles). We strive to incorporate these areas in each therapy session.
Rebekah Taylor, M.A. CCC-SLP, is a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist specializing in the Birth to Five population. Rebekah has enjoyed a rather diverse career background, from a child-care centre to the Anatomic Pathology department at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She draws upon every experience that has led her to this profession.
Throughout her work, Rebekah has developed a passion for supporting children and their families through what can sometimes be very emotional and frustrating experiences. She has worked in a variety of settings including private practice and US schools, as well as in schools and clinics within the National Health Service in the UK. These experiences have provided opportunities to understand a range of cultures, how communities and environments influence the growth of a child, and how to help a child feel secure and confident in their ability to communicate and participate in their world.
Rebekah has received training in a variety of programs including: PROMPT, Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme, Lidcombe Stammering Programme for Children, and AAC assessment procedures and practice. She has completed Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) and regularly participates in advanced continuing education targeting early brain development, Autism, Apraxia (CAS), and various other speech and language development and disorders.
When not working, Rebekah enjoys history, traveling with her husband, and playing board games with friends.
The Alburnum Name
Alburnum is the Latin term for a tree’s sapwood; the most active living portion of the tree that allows the flow of sap and water as well as providing structural support. We feel this is an excellent symbol representing the dynamic nature of growth and development of skills which provide a foundation for the child’s continuing social success.
Let us help your child’s communication tree grow and flourish!
