About Speech SF
We believe play is the basis of learning. Our mission is to help children reach their communication potential while making speech therapy as stress free as possible for our children and families.
Founded in 2016, Speech SF is a woman owned and family run business that strives to positively impact families, communities, and speech therapists in San Francisco. We were founded because Katie Laher believed that pairing in-home, play-based therapy with an exceptional parent experience and straightforward policies would help remove stress from the therapy process for the entire family.
Our Core Pillars
Support not only the children but the families too
Play is not a break from learning- it’s the basis of learning
Set your sights on change not tasks
Life is too short to think small
Keep it Simple
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
Speech SF Gives Back
At Speech SF we try to find every opportunity we can to give back to the community. We are currently helping the community by:
Giving every one of our therapists 5 hours of paid volunteer time a year.
Donating free evaluations for school auctions. Please reach out if you are interested.
Building Suite Speech to provide an online community with free resources for parents.
