My name is Estefania Romera and I am bilingual Speech and Language Pathologist. I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela and moved to Miami, Florida in 2002. I earned both my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at Florida International University in Miami. Both programs had emphasis on cultural and linguistic diversity. I have had the opportunity to gain experience treating clients within the ages of 12 months to adults from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
I completed my clinical fellowship experience in a private pediatric clinic in Gainesville, Florida working with patients within the ages of 12 months to 18 years of age. These patients had a variety of communication disorders including articulation, fluency, expressive/receptive language, phonological disorders, and social pragmatic deficits. I gained clinical experience in literacy intervention and augmentative and alternative communication.
During my time at Florida International University I completed a variety of clinical practicums that drove me to develop a passion for working in pediatric clinical settings. I participated in the Summer Treatment Program (STP) at FIU that focused on evidence-based practice for elementary school children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder to address behavioral and emotional challenges through the Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) model. Additionally, I completed internships that involved intervention for children with a variety of diagnoses including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Cleft/Lip Palate, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Specific Reading Disorders, Dyslexia among others.
I relocated to Denver, Colorado in August of 2019 and began working full -time in the school system with high need students, at the secondary level. I will be working at Abound Children’s Therapy on Saturdays from 8:00-1:30.
I enjoy spending time with my husband, my family, my puppy Cocosette, and exploring all the wonders Colorado has to offer!
