Shaina Rafkin- M.S. CCC-SLP
Speech Language Pathologist, Owner
Hi there! My name is Shaina and I'm a passionate speech-language pathologist, pediatric feeding specialist, and orofacial myologist in the greater Pittsburgh area. After receiving my masters of science in 2017, I pursued additional training in orofacial myology, pediatric feeding therapy, tethered oral tissues, and speech sound disorders. This unique knowledge and skill set influences how I assess and treat my clients. It allows me to use a holistic and interdisciplinary approach while searching for the root cause of the issue. I commonly collaborate with other professionals, such as pediatricians, ENT doctors, orthodontists, and occupational therapists . Recognizing the importance of optimal function in the orofacial complex and how it relates to speech, feeding, and breathing has led me on a mission to improve the overall health and wellbeing of as many people as I can help!
You Deserve to THRIVE, not just survive!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Shaina is incredible!! Flexible with appointment timing (she comes to our house Sunday mornings!), amazing communication, and we've seen clear results in the right direction in just a few sessions in a few different areas already. She's been helping him with extreme food pickiness, sensory issues related to food, and building up the facial/mouth muscles needed for a proper and smooth eating experience. Highly recommended if your kids are struggling with any of those issues, or more! She knows alot about speech/ oral motor/ feeding all around.
