Mango Elephants Pediatric Speech, Language and Wellness Services was founded by Sharda Yoga Volunteer Abby Weiss, M.S., CCC-SLP. Abby's mission is to provide support and strategies to families so that they can feel confident in helping their children express themselves with greater independence. She helps children feel seen and heard by supporting the growth of their meaningful communicative interactions. She leads with your parenting style and customizes her sessions based on your child’s individual needs and interests.
Hi! I'm Abby! I am a licensed and ASHA board-certified Speech-Language Pathologist. I am licensed in both California and Illinois. I am originally from Chicagoland area before I moved to the west coast after graduate school. As a speech-language pathologist, my approach to therapy implements the use of individualized care, combining the use of play-based and routines based intervention. I use a family-centered approach. Together, we encourage speech and language learning through play, routines, yoga, mindfulness, and parent/caregiver reflection.
