Speech Therapy Specialties

Here at Voz Speech Therapy, our speech therapists are trained in all facets of speech therapy. However, below you’ll find some of the areas of speech therapy we specialize in.

Communication is about giving and receiving. If you have an expressive disorder, it means you have difficulty with expressing ideas – through speech, writing, etc. And if you have a receptive disorder, you have difficulty with understanding others’ expression – through listening, reading, etc. These include aphasia, language delays, and social pragmatic language disorders. We can help.

If you or your child have difficulty creating certain sounds, it may be a result of a speech sound disorder. These are disorders that affect your ability to make the sounds necessary for speech. They can affect both children and adults of any age. Some of the more common ones include dysarthria, selective mutism, childhood apraxia of speech, and acquired apraxia of speech. Voz Speech Therapy can help.

If you notice your child isn’t progressing as expected, meeting the appropriate milestones, it’s a good idea to get them evaluated as soon as possible. Early intervention in speech and language issues has been shown to produce much better results than waiting until they’re older. This is because some critical brain development happens during those early years. Voz Speech Therapy’s early intervention can help.

Have you noticed your child has difficulty breastfeeding, or is struggling to make certain sounds? Or, have you noticed you have a difficult time with swallowing? If so, it may be an orofacial myofunctional disorder. These disorders include tongue thrust, tongue tie, speech distortion errors, dental abnormalities and more. The good news is that speech therapy treatments can correct these disorders.

Stuttering and cluttering are considered fluency disorders. These are disorders that affect your ability to speak. In most cases, you know exactly what you want to say, but you either have difficulty actually saying it (stutter) or you have speech that comes out bunched together and poorly organized, making it difficult to understand you (clutter). These can be frustrating to deal with, but speech therapy can help.

About The Voz Speech Therapy Clinic

If you’ve dealt with a speech or language disorder your entire life, you know how frustrating it can be.

Maybe you were diagnosed at a young age, and ongoing therapy is what’s kept it in check.

Maybe you just figured it out recently, and it was a light bulb moment as you realized why you’ve always felt so different from your peers.

Or maybe it’s not you at all, but your child. You’ve noticed they haven’t been progressing the way the doctors and the mommy blogs said they should, and you’re getting concerned.

Either way, at Voz Speech Therapy, we’re here to help.

Founded in 2018, Voz Speech Therapy is a full service bilingual speech language pathology clinic serving the DC Metro area, as well as residents of Maryland and Virginia. If you or your child are dealing with a speech or language disorder, we can help.

Our Speech Therapy Services

At Voz Speech Therapy, we offer speech and language therapy services for adults and children of all ages.

Are you noticing your child isn’t hitting the expected developmental milestones? Have they shown some early signs of a speech or language disorder? Or have you always struggled with certain areas of speech or language, but never received a diagnosis? If so, the first step is a speech therapy evaluation. We’ll find out what the root cause of your symptoms are and offer you a treatment plan to address it.

Is your child struggling to learn to read and write? Do they seem reluctant to talk or communicate? Do they have trouble creating certain sounds with their speech? If so, speech therapy for children can help. Through working with a pediatric speech therapist, your child will learn to overcome or work around their speech or language disorder, giving them the best chance at developing a strong, confident voice.

When it comes to speech therapy for adults, it usually falls into two categories. Either you have a speech disorder you were born with but were never treated for, or you or a loved one has experienced an event that alters their ability to communicate. Whatever it is that’s causing your concerns, however, speech therapy for adults can help you overcome your disorder and communicate clearly .

If your child has a speech, language, or feeding disorder, it can be a stressful experience. But Voz Speech Therapy is here to help. Through our therapeutic approach, we’ll work with both you and your child to address their disorder. Because children may be either uncooperative, or too young to understand how to practice their new speech and language skills, we’ll show you how to support them along the way as well.


Reviews From Our Speech Therapy Patients

Here at Voz Speech Therapy, our goal is to be the best speech therapy clinic in Washington DC.

But don’t just take our word for it – see what others have had to say about us.

Dr. Ana is the best. My pediatrician was concerned because my toddler wasn’t meeting his speech benchmarks. Dr. Anna caught him up in just three months, and now he is a little... talking machine.Not only did Dr. Ana give me weekly activities to do with my son at home for his speech, but she is also a kid expert and was able to help with other facets of his development as well. He (and I) looked forward to seeing Dr. Ana every week.Highly recommend if you need a qualified and empathetic speech pathologist!read more

My daughter was so lucky to find Voz. Everyone here has been wonderful. Ana-Maria met with us first and diagnosed my daughter with a condition that is usually overlooked. For... therapy, we worked with Jessica. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She was so good to my daughter; coming to speech therapy was something she really looked forward to, because she viewed Jessica as her friend. Jessica could have fun with her, but she always made her work; Because of that, I have seen a great deal of progress in my daughter's speech in the 7 months we worked with Voz.read more

Ana-Maria is a truly gifted speech therapist and wonderful person. My son came to her at two years old speaking very few words. Now, he never stops talking. :-) My son looked... forward to his weekly sessions and always talked about Ana throughout the week at home. Ana-Maria also gave me helpful tips to encourage my son’s language development at home. We will miss seeing her weekly so much!read more

Dr. Ana is an amazing speech therapist that knows her stuff! Prior to visiting her, our 20 month old daughter had a slight delay in her speech. Dr. Ana not only used age... appropriate engaging activities to help our daughter build up her speech, she also provided numerous resources and tips for us to reinforce at home with our daughter. After a few months of seeing Dr. Ana, our now 23 month old had a burst of speech and is now saying the expected number of words for her age group.Dr. Ana is also super friendly and very hygienic which is important during these times of the pandemic. We’d highly recommend other parents to sending their children to see Dr. Ana!read more

Anna-Maria was such a gift to our family. My son started working with her during the pandemic. She was incredibly engaging, always got down on the floor with him - and he was... always excited to see her and the new games she would introduce to make learning fun! She has a way of working with kids that makes them respect and listen to her. She gave us a "report" after each session to let us know how it went and gave us some easy suggestions to incorporate into our day to day life. We saw a HUGE improvement through our work with her. Her office team was really accessible, and she was always quick to answer any questions. I was a little sad when it was time for us to "graduate" but she also was the first to let us know when he was meeting his milestones and we didn't need to keep coming. I cannot recommend Anna-Maria enough, and if we ever needed speech services again, we would call her.read more

I’m not able to express our gratitude to Anna Maria and Heyli for what they are doing to our son. We had a no speaking boy of 3 years old in September with an Apraxia diagnosis.... We have now a 3years and 5 months boy that can’t stop talking both in English and Italian. Lots of work made with passion and love. They made the difference and we are really grate for this hard work that they made. We consider both of them part of our family now.read more

Ana-Maria is an excellent speech therapist. She worked with my two year old who was non verbal when he started and three months later he is talking non stop! Ana-Maria set goals... and once they were met, she graduated my son from therapy. My son still asks me to take him to play with Ana-Maria! She is extremely warm and professional. I highly recommend VOZ therapy to anyone who might need it.read more

Ana Maria is the best speech therapist ever. She helped my daughter tremendously with her speech, and in a short time. She is dedicated, very professional, and a wonderful person.... I enjoyed listening to them during classes (online due to the pandemic) and when face to face classes were possible, I could see the dedication and care she would give to her students. My daughter improved her speech in no time, and was delighted to attend to her classes. Ana Maria is also very resourceful and would engage the kids during the hour she would spend with them.I thoroughly recommend her, no questions asked! As I said before, She is the best speech therapy and an amazing person!read more

I’m not sure that I have met another speech language pathologist more in tune with the needs of her clients and families. Ana-Maria Jaramillo is as compassionate as she is a firm... advocate for her families.

I am constantly in awe of how she gives her very best and then some. I highly recommend her!read more

Ana-Maria Jaramillo is a fellow SLP colleague of mine. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Ana-Maria over the past year and a half. I have come to respect her knowledge as an... SLP and passionate advocate for her patients. She continues to seek out the most current research in order to provide her patients with the best treatment for the best outcomes! This dedication is evident as she is currently pursuing her doctorate through Northwestern University. I often seek out her advice on a variety of topics.

I can’t say enough good things about Ana. She worked with our son for almost 2 years and he flourished under her care. She left notes after each session and was always available... to discuss anything regarding our son. Our son loved spending time with Ana. She always came with fun toys and innovative ways to encourage him to work with her. Her warm and inviting personality is perfect for young children.We loved Ana too — so much that we invited her to all of our kids’ birthday parties and she starting giving Spanish lessons to our other child. We miss her greatly!read more

Ana who was my son's speech therapist brought hope to us. My 2 year old then could not speak correctly and made it extremely difficult to understand him and he will get very upset... with us. Once i enrolled my son to speech therapy and literally just a few sessions my son was learning to pronounce words and even learned sign language and now my son talks complete sentences, thanks to Ana my son has came a long way with his speech and I am beyond thankful for her help. If your child is having these issues please see Ana she will be able to help you and your child.read more

Yes, absolutely. We are in-network to accept BlueCross BlueShield, HSCSN, Tricare, Medstar, DC Medicaid, and Amerihealth. Additionally, we are currently in the process of being credentialed by other insurances. If you have another insurer, you may still be able to receive out of network benefits, but you’ll have to consult your plan for details.

Not only that, but we’re also licensed to practice in Maryland and Virginia as well.

There is a wide variety of different speech, language, and feeding disorders that speech therapy can help with. For more information, explore our speech therapy specialties page.

In some limited cases, perhaps. But research shows that early intervention speech therapy delivers much better results. If you take the wait and see approach, and it doesn’t work out, your child might be stuck with a frustrating speech or language disorder for the rest of their life that could have been treated with early intervention.

Each individual speech therapy session lasts for 45 minutes. The number of sessions it takes depends on your or your child’s disorder, severity, and several other factors. Your speech therapist will give you an estimate of what to expect.
