Melinda Bumgardner, MA, CCC-SLP marks 4 years at Child and Family Development this month! She is a speech therapist at the Midtown office.
Melinda brings so much to her work with clients. Her ability to relate to and engage children is something that makes her unique as a therapist. She shares that even before she decided to be a speech therapist, she knew that she wanted to work with children. She thinks her office space is a reflection of who she is and we agree. She strives to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. Melinda has a slight obsession with children‚Äôs toys and loves to find a new toy or material that can be incorporated into speech therapy sessions ‚Äì at a bargain price of course. All of her co-workers know that her shelves are the go-to place for awesome games and toys!
One of her great acquisitions this past year was a play kitchen set for the room. She like toys that facilitate speech and language and encourage a child to use their imagination. She shares that the kitchen has been a big hit! We have cooked pizza, made coffee and even ordered food off of menus. What would you like from the ‚ÄúL Sound Caf√©‚Äù?
