Erica Azzurri, M.A. CCC-SLP
I am the owner and sole practitioner of Azzurri Speech Therapy located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am a pediatric speech-language pathologist certified by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and earned a Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology from The University of Memphis.
I am TalkTools Level 3 trained, PROMPT trained, and trained in orofacial myology. This combinations of trainings allows me to thoroughly assess and treat the structure and function of the muscles needed for feeding and speech.
Recipient of 5 ASHA ACE awards, each awarded for completing 70 hours of continuing education.
I provide services in the greater Pittsburgh area. My sessions occur in YOUR home. I can also go to your child's school or daycare.
I am the sole practitioner of my company, which means you receive services from a consistent therapist.
My sessions are typically longer, depending on your child and family's needs.
I emphasize family involvement and use home programs so that your child improves at a faster rate. I utilize a material-lending program, in which your family can borrow therapy materials to practice at home.
My practice is smaller so I am able to dedicate time to planning individualistic therapy for your child, and am available to communicate between sessions.
I listen to families and children when making decisions about therapy goals and activities.
My therapeutic approach consists of a combination of structure and play, because I believe that children learn better when they are engaged.
