Speech

Articulation Disorders • Phonological Delays & Disorders • Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Children with speech sound disorders often struggle to communicate their wants and needs because of sound errors, which may result in frustration. After a thorough speech sound evaluation, we will identify the specific sounds that your child needs support with and design a treatment plan to help them confidently say their words.

Late Talkers • Expressive & Receptive Language Delays & Disorders

Children who have challenges understanding or using language may struggle socially and academically. After a comprehensive language evaluation, we can identify the root cause of your child’s difficulties and develop a tailored therapy plan to help them grow. Caregivers and parents are always invited to participate and learn supportive strategies!

English • Spanish

We provide skilled speech therapy services to children who speak English, Spanish, or both languages. After a comprehensive language evaluation, we can determine whether your child’s language challenges can be attributed to a “language difference” or a “language disorder" and help you choose the best course of action.

Meet Maja
Maja Whitaker, M.S, CCC-SLP
OWNER, SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST

I am an experienced speech therapist who celebrates the richness of different cultures and languages! I earned my master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology with a bilingual English-Spanish specialization from Marquette University and have gained experience serving children in bilingual schools, adults in in-patient rehabilitation facilities, and clients of all ages in private practice settings. 

I opened Bloom Bilingual Therapy to address the critical shortage of bilingual speech-language pathologists in our increasingly diverse society. As a trilingual language learner myself, I value the experience of speaking multiple languages, and I am passionate about supporting cultural diversity in my practice. Professionally, I seek to build meaningful connections with my clients and families through empathy, respect, collaboration, and cultural sensitivity. I welcome and encourage caregivers to participate in my sessions and incorporate the input of family members in the therapy process.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exploring the outdoors, cooking, reading, and traveling. I look forward to getting to know you and your family!
