Our mission is to provide unique, cutting edge, evidence-based therapeutic services across multiple disciplines with a focus on exceptional quality, care, and family support. We offer families a caring and supportive environment where they can learn about their loved one’s needs and how to nurture their loved one’s capacity to succeed.
Our aim is to help individuals reach their potential by treating the whole person using techniques learned from experience and directed by evidence-based practices. Our philosophy centers on the idea that both children and adults learn about their environment and how to exist within their environment by engaging and interacting with their surroundings. We believe it is critical to make therapy fun and motivating while using a systematic approach. We strive to continually learn about and take pride in offering cutting-edge therapeutic approaches to our clients. We believe the clinic should be an educational resource to provide the community with support and access to rehabilitative services.
We offer therapists an opportunity to create and enjoy a fulfilling career with a stable, happy work environment. We value honesty and creativity and we respect the clients, therapists, partners and community we serve.
Meet Our Owner
Rachel Criscuolo M.S., CCC-SLP
Owner/Speech-Language Pathologist at Speech Pathology Group & Rehab Services of CT.
Rachel creates individualized therapy sessions to target the specific needs of each client. Her sessions are intensive and creative. Her ability to balance both fun and “work” in her therapy sessions has proven beneficial to her clients’ acquisition and generalization of skills.
Rachel’s enthusiasm for helping others, coupled with her passion for working with young children and their families serves as the foundation for the principles embraced by The Speech Pathology Group.
Rachel has treated a wide range of communication delays and disorders and is always expanding her knowledge, especially in the areas of Apraxia, Autism and Social Language. Her diverse experience makes it possible for her to embrace and utilize a variety of methods for both individual and group therapy needs.
Rachel received a bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Connecticut and a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Southern Connecticut State University. She also earned her Intermediate Administrator Certification from Southern Connecticut State University (092). Significantly, Rachel has completed level 1 of PROMPT Training, Level 1 of Pivotal Response Training, Level 1 of Talk Tools Training, Training from IAOM/Myofunctional Therapy and completed the Implementer training for PECS.
We create relationships and are grateful to our many parents, agencies, and school counselors for their support throughout the years.
“ We switched from a large practice to SPGCT because I felt my child was lost in the mix. Rachel is on top of insurance claims and sends frequent emails to stay connected.”
“If there has ever been a parental, administrative or teacher concern – the ladies have jumped in immediately to help. It is evident these SLP’s have worked in our school systems for years.”
“I have been a contractor for many years - but this is the first time I have worked for a practice that is run by a fellow SLP - and what a difference it makes! Rachel truly understands our needs and our worth.”
