We are hiring SLPs! Please send resumes to office@speechcenteraz.com


Our Mission:

We believe that each child is an individual with strengths and needs.

We provide solutions that work for children and their families.

We help each child in our clinic find their unique voice to express themselves.

Our Vision:

All people are fully expressed and heard as a gift to their own life

and as a possibility in their community.


Our Philosophy

Every child is fundamentally unique. By using what we learn about who that child is, how they learn, and what they love, we can help accomplish their communication goals while modeling techniques for parents and caregivers to continue using at home. Children expand their imaginative, social, language, and intellectual skills through play, exploration, and story-telling. By working with parents along with the child, our therapists are able to give families tools to increase communication outside of the office. This accelerates the process of overcoming speech difficulties while building parent knowledge of how they can impact their child's communication and development.

We hope this website answers your questions regarding the care we provide. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.

Celebrating 30 years of excellent in pediatric speech therapy:

This year we are celebrating 30 years of helping children find a voice! Our clinic was started in 1993 by Diane and her partner and friend Sherril, both SLPs at what was then University Medical Center. In the wake of UMC closing their speech department, Diane and Sherril set to work growing our practice. At the time, they each had a toddler and each an infant under a year old. 30 years later we have been able to attract fantastic therapists to work with us and had the honor of helping thousands of families. We are proud and grateful for the support of the Tucson community and look forward to many more years of fulfilling our mission.
