Zoah Speech & Outreach
Unconventional speech therapy for unconventional learners.
We are a neurodiversity affirming therapy practice in Colorado Springs, specializing in the treatment of kids with communication delays and differences. We listen to our clients and their families to deliver compassionate, child-led, and meaningful therapy.
ADHD & Autism
ADHD and ASD are neurotypes, which often present with differences in learning, regulation, and social expression. We teach kids and teens about their brains, empower them to self-advocate, equip them with new strategies, and foster authentic relationships.
80-95% of autistic children are gestalt language processors, so we facilitate language skills differently than most speech therapy practices.
Children with articulation delays, phonological disorders, or childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) may struggle with speaking, reading, and writing. We use research-based methods to help them master speech sounds and coordinate speech movements!
Our advanced training in motor-based therapy approaches, including DTTC, allows us to truly treat the root of the issue in childhood apraxia of speech.
Toddlers may not reach early language milestones for a variety of reasons. We engage in play-based sessions, use language facilitation strategies, and empower parents to apply the same strategies at home to help their child express themselves.
Parent involvement is key to quick and lasting progress; we invest in caregivers because we know that you are your child's greatest teacher!
Founder, Speech-Language Pathologist
Shyanne is a speech therapist and college instructor with advanced training in the neuroscience of communication.
She provides positive and varied learning experiences for her clients - both inside and outside of the clinic. Shyanne's deep understanding of cognitive development, motor speech, and Natural Language Acquisition (NLA) allows her to address the root cause of her clients' surface-level challenges and help them become confident communicators.
"I didn't know what echolalia or gestalt language processing was before I brought my son to see Shyanne. No one in my son's life understood what to do when he spoke to us in movie quotes or lines from YouTube, but she understood him right away and they formed a truly special friendship. She was the only speech therapist who taught my son in the way that he learned best and the progress that we have seen in a few short months is incredible. I am so thankful that we found Zoah Speech & Outreach and I would recommend Shyanne's services to any family with a child who communicates through echolalia." ~ C.C.
