Biography


Email This Provider: Arlene Colón

Arlene C. Colón, M.A., CCC-SLP received her BA and MA from California State University of Fullerton. Arlene specializes in early intervention, parent training and treating children with apraxia of speech, phonological disorders and speech sound disorders. She believes in the importance of family involvement and family education by incorporating family values, lifestyle, cultural beliefs, environmental influences as well as the personality of each child. In addition to being certified as a Speech-EZ Apraxia practitioner, she is also certified in Hanen “It Takes Two to Talk” and trained in the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol. While working in a public preschool, Arlene launched a Response to Intervention (RTI) program, which educated parents on how to support their child’s speech and language through conversation and play. As a mom, she knows what it is like to have a child with a speech disorder. At a young age, her son was diagnosed with childhood apraxia of speech. Thanks to early intervention and intense therapy he is doing well and is now a teenager!
