Pediatric Speech therapist in Norfolk Virginia Beach

Meet Nicole

At Making Waves Speech Therapy, our goal is to empower people with communication difficulties to find their voice and be heard. Our founder, Nicole Spencer, MS CCC-SLP, has over 7 years of experience in a variety of settings and is passionate about helping children communicate and addressing speech and language difficulties.  As a bilingual therapist, Nicole is able to provide therapy in Spanish and understands the importance of dual-language learning in any language.  

We specialize in neurodiversity-affirming therapy, including Gestalt language processing, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), and play-based therapy, which helps children develop their communication skills in a fun and enjoyable way. We are also equipped to address a wide range of speech sound disorders and language disorders. 

We take a holistic approach to therapy, and we treat every client as a unique individual with their own needs and challenges. We believe that communication is an essential part of human connection, and we strive to help people achieve their communication goals through personalized and evidence-based therapy. We can't wait to speak with you to see if we'll be a good fit for your family!
