Speech-Language  Therapy

At Beach Kids Therapy Center we help children maximize their speech production, receptive and expressive language skills and social pragmatic use of language. Our speech and language pathologists and assistants are trained to work with children with various conditions ranging from early intervention to school age language and articulation disorders.

Stephanie Weisbecker, MS, CCC-SLP

Speech-Language Department Supervisor

Enneagram Type: Investigator

Qualities: Independent, Innovative

Stephanie enjoys working with children that have expressive/receptive language disorders, apraxia, dysfluency and articulation disorders.

Rachel Bosemer, MS, CCC-SLP

Enneagram Type: Reformer

Qualities: Purposeful, Perfectionist

Rachel’s favorite part of therapy is the moment that everything clicks or comes together and the child is overcome by their accomplishments. She also enjoys incorporating the gym and movement into her sessions. On the weekends you can find her in the desert as she races off-road ATV’s and UTV’s. She and her sister are some of the few girls out there! If she isn’t in the desert you can find her floating down the Colorado River, at the beach, or spending time with her family. Rachel is a proud mama to two big dogs, Jack, a 100 pound golden retriever wolf mix, and Sam, a German shepherd pit mix, whom she holds very close to her heart!
