Meet the Clinician
Ana-Maria Jaramillo, M.S., CCC-SLP is a nationally-certified bilingual pediatric speech-language pathologist with over six years of experience providing speech-language therapy to children ages birth to 18. Her area of specialty is working with children in early intervention, ages one to six years old. She has practiced in public and private schools, child development centers and daycares, as well as private homes throughout Texas and the DC metropolitan region. Through her experience working in diverse and often challenging therapeutic settings, she has developed a successful therapeutic model by directly collaborating with the most important individuals involved in a child’s development. By working in conjunction with families, teachers, and healthcare providers, she ensures goals are met and each child reaches his or her maximum potential through an engaged, dynamic, play-based approach. Ana-Maria believes that providing therapy in the child’s preferred and natural environment allows for children to develop critical communication skills and confidence that can have transformative impacts in many areas of their lives.
Ana-Maria currently holds licenses to practice in the District of Columbia and Maryland. She graduated cum laude in 2013 with a Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. Ana-Maria is currently certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and has been trained in Orofacial Myofunctional therapy, Tethered Oral Tissues Specialty Training (TOTS), PROMPT, Kaufman’s Treatment Progression for Apraxia of Speech and Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). She is certified in the Simon Says Tongue Tips and Thumbs Up! program for clients with orofacial myofunctional disorders and/or persistent thumb sucking. She has over 120 hours of continuing education and has volunteered for various non-profits dedicated to helping families and children with special needs gain more resources in their community.
In her free time, she enjoys cheering on her beloved Colombian national soccer team, planning her next travel adventure with her boyfriend, practicing yoga, and fruitlessly searching for quality Tex-Mex food in the DC area.
