Rebecca Haas has enjoyed working with children the past twelve years who have speech and language delays. Although she’s worked with many different age groups, she especially enjoy working with toddlers and preschoolers. They are so excited and eager to work with her when she comes to their home or daycare for speech therapy, and they often think of her as their friend who comes to play with them weekly. She chooses to work with young children in their natural environment because she can get more out of them during each therapy session. Young children are usually more comfortable at home or at their daycare than if they were seen in an office environment.
Rebecca presently owns her own therapy practice, Talking With Toddlers, Ltd. in Jackson, Mississippi. She works with private therapy clients and contracts with Mississippi’s early intervention program, First Steps, which serves children age birth to three. Before that, she had a practice, Rebecca Hawkins & Associates, Ltd. in Savannah, GA for 8 years working with the early intervention population. She holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science degree in Communicative Disorders/Speech-Language Pathology and the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA).
