Our Philosophy

We believe that the only true way of understanding what a child is thinking is by what they tell us. From birth, children begin interacting with the world through sound. These sounds grow into meaningful words to express wants and needs and later into sharing very complex thoughts, opinions, and ideas.

The ability to communicate effectively impacts virtually every aspect of a child’s world from letting a preschool teacher know that they miss their parent, to becoming a competent speller and reader, to establishing and maintaining meaningful friendships.

We at Linda Peterson & Associates work as a team with parents, daytime caregivers, teachers, and physicians to accomplish our individually designed treatment goals and are committed to helping every child we see have the opportunity of becoming a competent communicator.


“We came to Linda Peterson & Associates because our two year old had a speech delay and we were immediately welcomed. Our son has primarily worked with Diana. His confidence has improved immensely and he has flourished with his language skills. He loves to go each week. Linda and Diana have become great resources as we navigate through our son’s milestones. We rely on their opinions and trust them completely with having our son’s best interests at heart. We couldn’t be more pleased with our son’s progress. Finding Linda Peterson & Associates has been a blessing for our family and we are so proud of our son’s accomplishments.”

“Linda Peterson & Associates are the best! They work hard to tailor therapy to each child’s needs while taking the whole child into account. They have become a trusted part of the team that helps our daughter and have gone above and beyond to help us with whatever aspects of her life that we’ve needed assistance with over the years. Our daughter has formed a strong bond with the therapists she has worked with and they are practically family at this point. We are grateful to them for helping us see our daughter’s full potential.”
