Rhonda Rodriguez, M.S., CCC-SLP
Owner, Rodriguez Speech and Myofunctional Therapy
Hello and Welcome!
Thank you for stopping by to learn a little about me. I’m from the piney woods of East Texas where I graduated from Harmony High School in 1987. I’m a US Navy veteran and have been an active member of the Denton community with my husband and children for over 20 years. I graduated summa cum laude from Texas Woman’s University with my Bachelor of Science degree in 2002 and Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 2005.
As a speech-language pathologist, I’ve worked in public education, private practice and outpatient rehab for children and adults. I’ve worked with special populations such as individuals with down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, hearing impairments, ADHD, TBI, epilepsy disorders, hydrocephalus, and more. I’ve evaluated and treated a broad range of speech and language disorders including speech sound disorders, apraxia of speech, feeding and swallowing, expressive, receptive and social language disorders, stuttering, and myofunctional disorders.
Ongoing education is important to me. I’ve completed over 100 hours of continuing education over the past year and received my second Award for Continuing Education in 2018. Areas of focus were in sensory-motor feeding issues, orofacial myology and swallowing. I also received my certification in Hanen It Takes Two To Talk and I offer training to caregivers of children with language delays. I also have extensive training in Listening and Spoken Language strategies for children with hearing impairments.
I established this private practice to reflect my personal and professional values. It is my desire to provide quality, knowledgeable and individualized care to each client and their family. You might be wondering what a dragonfly has to do with speech therapy? As a koi pond owner and enthusiast, the dragonfly has long captivated my admiration for its beauty, power and resilience. The dragonfly perseveres through a long journey before getting its wings and reaching its full potential to fly. This resonates in me personally and professionally, as my journey to establish this private practice has included overcoming adversity and fears. My hope and passion is to meet each individual and family along their journey to help them “find their wings” and reach their full potential.
If you would like more information on the services I offer, please don't hesitate to call, email or message me through my website. I would love to visit with you and provide assistance for you or your child's speech therapy needs.
