Hi there! My name is Wes, with Speech Guy®
Speech Guy® is an organization, founded by me, a linguist and licensed and nationally certified Speech-Language Pathologist. This organization was founded with the goal of providing assessments and speech therapy to individuals, utilizing simple, highly effective strategies to remediate speech disorders.
My career as a Speech Pathologist began in 2005, with keen interest in working with adults with aphasia, stuttering, and TBI. The term “Speech Guy” began at Providence Speech & Hearing Center in 2006. While working with students on the playground at Providence Preschool, a student named Emmanuel would run up to me regularly and say “Hey, Guy!” Working with kids at Providence made me realize two things: (1) working with kids is a tremendous blessing, and (2) in a profession comprised of 96% female speech therapists, simply “being a guy” made me stand out to kids, and rapport got established right away.
In 2008-2010, I began to work as a subcontractor at an Elementary School in Chino, CA, until the planning of my own practice was completed. July of 2010, planning was completed and Speech Guy® was formed, just months before I made the transition from “bachelor” to “married man”. On June 12, 2011, I married the love of my life, Nyri. In January of 2013, our first son Joshua was born, so we decided to move to the Los Angeles area to be closer to family and our church. Now, being a family man, I have picked up even more passion for helping children grow into becoming thriving, successful communicators.
At Speech Guy®, we not only provide therapy to adults and kids, but we work tirelessly to meet your loved ones’ therapy goals. Since inception, Speech Guy® has met the goals of and ‘graduated’ hundreds of students from the need to receive further speech therapy services.
We utilize simple, highly skilled strategies to remediate specific speech and language difficulties. Our recipe for success, which includes quick rapport, skillful and intense treatment, and daily family support via home program exercises, has amounted to the success and remediation of many clients through Speech Guy®. We have experience in treating and remediating adults and kids with many different types of communication difficulties. Click on the adults or kids tabs for more details.
Furthermore, unlike other agencies, Speech Guy® has a key interest in raising money for students of low income families to provide them an avenue and motivation for college. Through a school program known as Speech Club, Speech Guy® has equipped over 35 students with tools to go to college, and carried out two Speech Club events, providing over $2,000 in college scholarships to students thus far.
If you or someone you know is struggling with difficulties that affect his or her ability to communicate effectively, please give us a call or send us an email. We’d be happy to assist.
We speak English, Spanish, and Armenian
