Therapist Mira

Licensed speech therapist, SLP Mira Starck, Pro Lingua Ltd.

Gratuated with Master´s degree in speech-languege pathology from University of Helsinki 2006.

I am specialized in childrens oral and verbal motor disorders. I am also providing myofunctional therapy. Also I am specialized in Selective Mutism. I have been working as a private therapist, SLP for 13 years. I am continially participating for additional trainings. I have training on OPT (Oral Placement Therapy), Myofunctional therapy and Selective Mutism. Addition to oral and verbal motor disorders, I am interested in childhood emotional development, anxiety and especially in selective mutism.

I am a mother of three children and disorders of speech and language are familiar to me also as a mother. I know how important it it to find a professional, specialized -and emphatic therapist for your child.

Using my therapy experience I have designed learning games for children.
