Small Steps Therapy, LLC has been open to serve children and families in the New England area since 2013.

The clinic was founded by Rachel Best as a way to serve the greater Providence community using her skills and expertise in the areas of pediatric speech, language, and dysphagia. Since 2013, we have grown and welcomed new clinicians to continue to support the community’s growing need for skilled services in a private practice setting. Our high-quality, individualized services and eclectic approach to therapy make us different than the average clinic. We believe that practicing speech sounds during games, obstacle courses, and crafts is more effective than sitting at a table with flashcards. Messes are encouraged during feeding therapy, and hands-on experience is the best learning tool.

As we expand, we are also opening our doors to older teen and adult patients. Whether your concern is social skill development or regaining swallow function following a stroke, we are here to support you and create the treatment plan that best supports your needs. Each clinician at Small Steps Therapy brings unique specialities, but we all share a deep passion for helping others communicate and eat. Everyone has a voice and we are proud and humbled to be a part of their journey to find it. Every step is progress, no matter how small.
