Our Story…

Kalamazoo Speech Associates was established by Dawn Chamberlain and Jennifer Crouse in 2001.  They began their practice fueled by a passion to help people improve their speech and language skills.  Along the way, they broadened their scope of practice in the area of orofacial myofunctional disorders to better serve their clients’ needs.  They are committed to helping children and adults reach their full potential.

Kalamazoo Speech Associates offers individual therapy sessions, tailored to meet the needs of each client.

Our center offers multiple therapy suites with audio and video monitoring systems for the caregivers.

Services…

Kalamazoo Speech Associates provides in-person as well as teletherapy through a HIPAA compliant telehealth platform. Parents may stay with children in the therapy room or may watch and listen to a session via a tablet sitting in their vehicle parked outside. We serve all populations from pediatrics to adults.
