About Us

Speech Therapy Essentials is a family owned business created by Sarah and Jonathan Clemins.  

Hello from Sarah

Hello to all of my speechie friends!

I'm so excited to offer a speech therapy subscription box services to my fellow speech language pathologists.  I have been working on the idea for speech therapy essentials for months and with the help of my husband, my dream is now a reality.  

Currently I work as an assistant professor in the Communication Disorders department at Marshall University teaching undergraduate courses and supervising graduate clinicians.  My current caseload is primarily voice and swallowing, but I also serve as the clinic coordinator for a multi-disciplinary ALS Clinic.   Prior to arriving at Marshall, I worked in home health and skilled nursing settings.  With productivity standards and demanding supervisors, I understand how impossible it is to create or even make time to shop for therapy materials. 

In addition to finding time, I never wanted to spend money on products that I wasn't sure would work for my patients.  I couldn't justify myself or my company spending $60 on a cup that I never even laid hands on.  With speech therapy essentials, I hope to alleviate this.  

Speech therapy essentials allows therapists the opportunity to have innovative therapy products delivered directly to the their door. These products are items you can use in therapy the next day without the huge price tag. 

I hope you give Speech Therapy Essentials the opportunity to serve your therapy  needs!
