Jessica Vietor-

Hey there! It's me Jess :) 
I graduated with a Master's Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Minnesota State University - Mankato in 2016 and joined the Advance Therapy team shortly after. I absolutely love being a pediatric Speech Language Pathologist. I enjoy having a career that allows me to bring in my positivity, laughter, creativity and expertise into my individualized treatment plans. I enjoy having the opportunity to make connections and build relationships with my kiddos, caregivers, and co-clinicians to aid in development and achievement of their goals. Outside of my very rewarding career I like to spend my down time golfing, traveling, attending concerts, and trying new foods/restaurants with the ones I love most.

Child Speech and Language

Children's speech and language development follows a typical pattern. Some medical and developmental conditions such as ADHD, Autism, Down Syndrome, Hearing Impairment, Dyslexia, and Brain Injuries can impact a child's ability to communicate.  If you have concerns about your child's speech or language, a speech-language pathologist can determine if there are areas of need and design a plan of care to improve communication skills.
