Welcome to Coastal Speech Therapy

Coastal Speech Therapy is a pediatric speech and language clinic providing speech and language evaluations, treatment, and social skills group therapy. It is the mission of Coastal Speech Therapy to provide the highest quality of services available utilizing current best practices to identify, diagnosis, treat, and prevent speech and language disorders.  We feel honored and privileged to witness your child smile from success while building her or her self-esteem, self confidence, and communication potential. We believe that the gift of communication is the greatest gift of all.

Coastal Speech Therapy was founded in 2005, by Molly Stuckey M.A., CCC-SLP.   We IMG_0114 (2)have built our exceptional reputation in our community based on trust, integrity, best practices, and results-driven therapy.  We  have deep relationships with pediatricians, school districts, preschools, ENT’s, private schools, psychologists, and ABA therapists, many of whom refer exclusively to Coastal Speech Therapy.  We have been fortunate to see Coastal Speech Therapy become an established presence in the community with exceptional clinicians and a very dedicated and caring office staff.

Coastal Speech Therapy is contracted with numerous leading universities in the field IMG_3919[1]of Speech and Language Pathology.  We offer fieldwork supervision for graduate level and SLPA students attending the following Universities: California State University San Marcos, Biola, Nova Southeastern University, Loma Linda, Chapman University, University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, California State University at Northridge, University of Alabama, University of South Carolina, and University of Pacific. We are in-network with Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, and Health Net PPO plans.

We are committed to ensuring that all children with speech, language, and hearing disorders receive services to help them communicate more effectively.  Research continues to demonstrate that improving a child’s speech and language skills at an early age prevents future delays in social, cognitive, and academic development. Through early identification and intervention, a child is able to reach his/her true potential.
