THE FIRST INspiration

 

A therapist can play a big part in your life or your child's life. As a person who stutters, Chris Massella, founder and leader of Talk It Up Speech & Learning, stuttered through his childhood and into his 30s, experiencing the emotional struggles that comes with stuttering. He sought therapy as an adult, connecting with an SLP, who combined talent with technique. Becoming more fluent, Chris changed and became inspired to change others.


The ideal of this company is to pay it forward, one child at a time. 

 


WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

THE STAFF AT Talk It Up Speech & Learning ARE UNITED IN THEIR BELIEF THAT ALL CHILDREN:

 

  • Have the power to learn

  • Are curious & creative

  • Can succeed
     

No two children have exactly the same skills or learning style. That's why Talk It Up Speech & Learning finds the best therapist for each facility. The therapist combines direct instruction, small-group work, and one-on-one therapy in a way that works for your children.
