Our Services

Alameda Speech Therapy provides speech, language, and stuttering therapy to children ages 1-14 years. We know that engagement and motivation are foundational to learning, so we fill our sessions with movement and play! Our clinic is located in the city of Alameda, California.

Speech Sounds

After completing a comprehensive speech sound assessment, we can characterize your child's speech sound errors, determine the root cause of their challenges, and choose the best therapy approach to help them grow.  You and your child may choose meaningful words for us to work on in therapy, such as their name, their favorite foods, or words that are important for sharing their hobbies and interests.


Supporting speech sound development is an art and a science, requiring the combination of evidence-based methods along with our extensive experience, allowing us to support accurate speech sound production and self-monitoring skills for lasting success.


We look at language skills through a cognitive processing lens which allows us to address the underlying cause of your child's difficulty with learning language concepts. Whether your child uses oral language, an AAC device, or echolalia ("scripting") to express themselves, we honor and accept all forms of communication.

We have advanced training in the Natural Language Acquisition approach, also known as Gestalt Language Processing which helps children who communicate using delayed echolalia progress toward using original, self-generated language.  


We gather information about your child's speech fluency by listening to them talk in a variety of contexts, and we ask about their perceptions and feelings about stuttering. This information allows us to determine the likelihood that their stuttering will persist and guides us in creating an individualized therapy plan.


We work on the goals most relevant to your child through a combination of counseling, stuttering modification techniques (which reduce tension and avoidance in the moment), and fluency shaping techniques (which promote fluency) to help your child on the journey to self-acceptance and communication success on their terms.

Meet Adrianna

Adrianna Kaspar, M.S. SLP

Owner, Speech-Language Pathologist

I am a pediatric speech therapist with over 10 years of experience in public schools, private clinics, and hospitals. Throughout my career, I have worked with children of all ages and abilities, including medically fragile children, children with complex communication needs, and children with diverse sensory profiles. I am passionate about seeing the strengths in each child and helping them express their true "self"-- rather than looking like everyone else!

I founded Alameda Speech Therapy in order to give children and families a greater say in their therapy experience and outcomes. I am committed to collaborating with family members and creating meaningful therapy goals by combining my clinical knowledge with their lived experiences and hopes for the future. My therapy style is relationship-centered rather than compliance-based, and I believe that it is essential to build trust with each child before I ask them to be vulnerable in learning. Every child is capable of communication in their own way, and every way is okay.

Personally, I enjoy hiking, camping, gardening, horseback riding, trying new foods, and going on adventures with my husband and two children! I look forward to getting to know you and your family.

We believe that therapy is most effective when it takes into account your child's strengths, interests, and sensory needs. Our clinic has room to jump, crawl, swing, or spin, and we love to move and play during our sessions to support each child's unique sensory profile!  We encourage parents to get involved in each session so you can feel confident supporting your child at home.
