Jillian Lenhard, M.S.Ed., CCC-SLP/L, TSSLD

Hello, I'm Jillian Lenhard (Ms. Jill), a Speech-Language Pathologist and the proud owner of 'The Speech Path.' I am honored to be a nationally certified professional by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and hold a license to practice in the state of New York. My commitment to ongoing education has been recognized with the prestigious Award for Continuing Education from ASHA. Additionally, I hold a Professional Teaching Certificate in Speech and Language Disabilities PreK-12.


Educational Journey: My journey in speech-language pathology began at the State University of New York at Geneseo, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech and Hearing Handicapped. Continuing my pursuit of knowledge, I obtained a Master of Science in Education degree in Speech-Language Pathology at the State University of New York at Buffalo State.


Experience: With over twelve years of experience, my passion lies in working with children with diverse speech and language needs. I've had the privilege of offering services in various settings, including homes, clinical environments, preschools, center-based programs, and daycares within our community. My expertise spans early intervention for toddlers and preschoolers, articulation and phonology, as well as receptive and expressive language.

Philosophy: At 'The Speech Path,' I am driven by the belief that every child's voice deserves to be heard. I am dedicated to establishing close relationships with the families I work with. I view caregiver participation and education as vital components in ensuring that language-rich experiences seamlessly integrate into a child's everyday routine. At the heart of every successful therapeutic journey lies effective communication. It's not just about words; it's about building connections, fostering trust, and ensuring that every family feels heard, understood, and supported.

Passion for Family Collaboration: I find immense joy in working collaboratively with families, guiding the path to overall speech and language success. By fostering strong connections and offering caregiver support, we create an environment where every child can thrive. Communication is a two-way street, and your insights, concerns, and triumphs are integral to the success of our shared goals. I encourage an open and honest dialogue, creating an environment where questions are welcomed, and your family's unique story is honored. Communication shouldn't be a barrier. I am committed to being accessible and responsive. Whether it's a quick question, a moment of celebration, or a concern that needs attention, I'm just an email or call away.

Personal Life: Beyond my professional endeavors, I am a resident of Williamsville, New York, where I share my life with my husband and two sons. This community holds a special place in my heart, and I am grateful to contribute to the well-being and growth of the children here.

Thank you for considering 'The Speech Path' for your child's speech and language needs. I look forward to the opportunity to embark on this journey with your family, supporting and celebrating every step towards communication success.

Warm regards,
