WHO WE ARE
We are a team of dynamic speech-language pathologists with decades of combined experience and specialized training in various aspects of speech, language, feeding and social communication.
Our mission “Helping Kids be Kids” was born over 12 years ago when our founder and speech-language pathologist, Mandy Alvarez was working in a private practice and talking to a mother about therapy goals for her son. The mother listened and said, “I just want my son to have a friend.”
Mandy took those words to heart and went on to found Integrated Children’s Therapy, where we understand that simple joys of childhood—like making friends, playing, and enjoying school—can be difficult for kids with developmental challenges. That’s why every intervention we offer emphasizes the social communication skills that allow kids to be kids.
Over the past 12 years we’ve evolved into a unique, thriving practice. Hallmarks of our approach include:
• Nurturing a warm relationship between each child and his or her therapist.
• Play-based therapy.
• Involving parents, caregivers, and other members of a child’s support team.
• Collaborating with the best-of-the-best of Miami’s child development community.
Above all, we love kids and we love to help them flourish.
Please get in touch if you’d like to visit our state-of-the-art facility, meet us, talk to some of our families, or find out more about how we can help your child. We look forward to hearing from you!
