Biography:

Hello! My name is Regina and I am Regional Day School's new Speech Therapist. Prior to working at RDS I had a great experience working at a private outpatient rehab facility. During my time in outpatient rehab I worked with many different clients who presented with language and articulation disorders and varied developmental disabilities. I also have experience working with children who benefit from feeding intervention and I enjoy using a multisensory approach within my speech sessions.
