Jessica Abawag is a speech therapist for children who aren’t quite speaking as clearly as they should….and the frustration is starting to show. She founded and has been running Fluens Children’s Therapy since 2016 and, since starting her career as a speech-language pathologist in 2012, she has served hundreds of children and their families. Jessica also collaborates and mentors Speech-Language Pathology Assistants (SLPAs) and Clinical Fellows (CFs). Through her practical blog posts, free video tips, and online parent consults, she’s here to show you how you can help your child communicate better - while making it feel like you’re being wrapped up in a big bear hug. Her faithful clients have called her “very professional”, “interested in supporting families”, and someone who “cares about children, their likes and dislikes, and wants to hear what they have to say”.

Looking for pediatric speech therapy services? You’re in the right spot! We specialize in working with children with speech and language disorders, including apraxia, speech sound problems, picky eating concerns, and language delays. We’d love to help you get more hope and peace in your family. Currently providing speech therapy services for kids ages 2-10 either online or in clients' homes. Taking a play-based, family-centered approach, we encourage parents and caregivers to participate in therapy sessions. We enjoy getting on the floor to play with children, meeting them where they are, and setting up opportunities to practice their speech skills. On a weekly basis we check in with families to see how communication changes over time, in all environments, including home, daycare, and the clinic setting. Parent education and coaching is key for families to see lasting progress in their child’s communication skills.
