We take a highly personalized approach to stuttering therapy based on your child's age, speech history, and goals. Speech therapy for stuttering may focus on strategies for smooth speech, developing self-advocacy skills, and building confidence for communicating at home, school, and in social situations. We will also provide parent coaching so you can support your child's communication at home.

We work with minimally-speaking or nonspeaking communicators to empower them with a reliable mode of communication through the use of AAC. Speech therapy using AAC will teach your child how to use their device to communicate wants, needs, and ideas. We will also train parents and other important people in your child's life on how to be effective communication partners.

Kathleen Caruso, M.S., CCC-SLP

Owner, Speech-Language Pathologist

Welcome! I am an experienced and compassionate pediatric speech therapist with nearly two decades of experience working with children of all ages in early intervention, schools, and outpatient rehab clinics. 


I opened Monmouth Speech Therapy with a mission to provide highly personalized therapy that is focused on the unique needs of every child and family. I am passionate about helping others and empowering children with the ability to communicate confidently.

As a parent, I also understand how important flexibility is, which is why speech therapy is provided in the child's most natural environment - home, daycare, and preschool. I also understand the importance of being able to carry over skills into everyday life, that is why I prioritize parent involvement to ensure parents are given practical strategies to support their child at home.
