The Connect Speech Therapy team is passionate about helping you reach the goals that matter most to you. We know how busy life gets, so we take the stress out of therapy by driving to your house, visiting your child's daycare, or hosting online sessions! Our speech therapists work hard to design motivating and effective speech therapy sessions that your child will look forward to each week.
THE CONNECT SPEECH THERAPY STORY
Welcome! I am Elaine Doerfler - speech therapist and owner of Connect Speech Therapy. I started my private practice to provide the families and schools in our community with personalized speech, language, and feeding therapy services.
My own journey as a mother has made me even more passionate about this work. My husband Scott and I have been blessed with four children - one of our whom has special needs with a number of diagnoses, including a severe speech disorder. I am very familiar with the emotional and physical demands that come with caring for an individual with a disability. My personal and professional experiences allow me to truly partner with families to help their child reach their highest potential.
READY TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS?
Get started with Connect Speech Therapy! We work with families across North Dakota and Minnesota.
Contact us to begin with a free consultation. We will gather basic information, listen to your concerns or support needs, and provide recommendations. After the call, we will send you online intake paperwork. We may also schedule a speech and language evaluation session at this time.
We will review your paperwork and make a plan for the evaluation. Our evaluation process includes a mix of formal and informal testing, parent/client interviews, observations, and other activities tailored to your child's speech and language concerns.
You will receive a thorough evaluation report and treatment plan with speech therapy goals and recommendations! Depending on your location and availability, your child may begin attending speech therapy sessions in person or online!
