Shaina Rafkin- M.S. CCC-SLP, CLC
Speech Language Pathologist, Owner
Hi there! My name is Shaina. 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 lactation counseling. 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 ENT doctors, dentists, orthodontists, bodywork providers and other 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!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Shaina is incredible!! Flexible with appointment timing, 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.
