About Herman & Associates
Welcome to Herman & Associates Pediatric Specialists, Inc. providing Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy. We hope you find our web site informative and useful in your search for information about our therapists, our facility and our services.
Herman & Associates Speech Pathology, directed by Jeffrey Herman, Ed.D,CCC-SLP, employs a staff of more than 40 therapists and support personnel in the areas of Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy. We are also supported by the service of graduate interns from 3 universities, as well as by Florida Hospital.
Herman & Associates Pediatric Specialists, Inc. is a private practice providing services to individuals of all ages with communication and/or physical disorders. Our organization consists of licensed professionals from a variety of backgrounds who share a common philosophy of client-centered treatment when it comes to serving those who need to improve their ability to communicate. We feel that the abilities to communicate and use language are the focal point of human existence and that language is the most complicated and important skill that a human can possess. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and they are all different. The child who has difficulty coping in one area of life can adversely affect his entire world. This is especially true when that difficulty is in the area of communication.
At Herman & Associates, we look at the whole child and tailor our broad base of therapeutic services to his or her needs, rather than try to fit them into a prescribed model. People who have difficulty expressing their thoughts in spoken words or who are not able to absorb information accurately through listening and reading are almost certain to experience difficulties in their academic and social learning in school and in the community. It is our goal to help those individuals to maximize their communication, physical and cognitive abilities through a variety of effective, meaningful, and innovative therapeutic techniques.

"My son has been attending HA for over 5 years now. Not only has my son made progress in verbal performance but the associates have taught him socialization with peers using incidental teaching. He has taken a teenager who arrives tired from a 7 hour school day and reigneted his energy and focus to answerer "wh" questions, order in a restaurant and participate in sports and other outings, all while having fun. Your associates have been an asset, an inspiration, a mentor and a friend and we are lucky and proud to continue our professional relationship with the staff." -M. Mancone
"Jeff Herman has significantly changed the quality of life for our son, Sam. Sam had difficult eating and swallowing without choking as a toddler. Through intensive therapy, endless patience coupled with a terrific sense of humor, Jeff was able to teach Sam to accept a variety of textures, chew and swallow." -Tim, Julie & Sam
"HA has been working with my son Jahan for about 4 years now. We have seen great progress with the development of his speech as well as breaking through security and sensory issues. He has become the most important factor in my sons development and for any hope of future development to come. We consider ourselves blessed to have found Herman and Associates, and we highly recommend them to any family considering them for their child's therapies." -P. Feghhi-Levine
