Our Mission

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.
