Clinica Potencial is the result of 30 years of expertise in the area of Speech-Language Pathology. Comprised of professionals holding the highest standards of knowledge and ethics, we aim to deliver the utmost quality of service.

How It Works

Sonia Salama, M.A., bilingual speech and language pathologist, is responsible for the first contact with the family. She performs the adequate screening, individual testing and thorough evaluation. Once the problem has been identified, our best practices are provided to put the child on “the right track” again. A comprehensive therapeutic planning is then carefully designed. Necessary connections between child-school-family are also provided, with constant orientation.
