Erin Weiner, M.S.CCC-SLP is a Speech Language Pathologist serving the Washington, DC metro area. She is certified by the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and licensed by the State of Maryland, Virginia and Florida. She holds a Masters degree in Speech Pathology from Florida International University and a Bachelors of Arts in Arts and Sciences from The George Washington University.

Erin’s specialized interests include pragmatics and social skills which have kept her active in the special needs community for the past 13 years. She has worked as a consultant and a therapist in both individual and group settings.

 

She has been recognized as an innovator in the field of Speech Pathology because of her unique approach to providing therapy that involves working closely within a child’s natural environment.

For instance, instead of providing services in a traditional therapy setting, Erin conducts real-time therapeutic sessions out in the real world. She provides services in the office, in clients’ homes, in private schools, and most importantly, out in the community. She collaborates with family members and communicates with other professionals to provide your child with the best support available. This rigorous hands on approach has proven straightforward in developing skills that a child can effectively apply to day to day life.

The inclusion of siblings, parents, grandparents and neighbors provides the children with a natural environment. The natural environment approach has improved the clients’ ability to react to real life situations in a way that is otherwise rarely provided.

…because therapy shouldn’t feel like work.
