As speech therapists seeking to honor the golden rule (to treat others as we would like to be treated), we focus on helping our clients to achieve their full potential.
Daily we set the goal of providing quality and comprehensive treatment plans tailored to meet the unique needs of each client.

Provision of Services

By setting the highest ethical standard for our associates and clients, as well as ourselves, we are equipped to establish and uphold a reputation of clinical excellence with a personal touch. Our speech therapy is operated by ASHA certified Speech-Language Pathologists and our primary objective is to provide quality, comprehensive speech-language therapy to the public. We offer encouragement and celebrate in each client’s success. Through the educating of parents, caregivers and teachers, we are able to increase the effectiveness and comprehensiveness of speech and language development. Professional development is always encouraged and provides an increasing quality in our staff and facility as well as our clients.

Milestones

I’m passionate about the empowerment of communication. When I first began studying American Sign Language, I was fascinated with the idea of communication and all it encompassed.  I searched for a career where I could serve others and use sign language. Through any stage of life and in any setting, I have the privilege of working with a wide range of diagnoses. This profession has allowed me to live my dream of helping others in their journey as they discover their potential through communication and so much more.

~Heather Field, Clinical Director of Speech Therapy

James and Tess had growing concerns when their two year old granddaughter was unable to communicate. This loving family wasted no time, partnered with their family doctor, and connected with Elite Therapy Center Gatesville clinic. “Alex is one of the most exceptional people we’ve ever met! There was a difference on the first day! I can’t explain how important it is to hear her and understand her. We are communicating with our granddaughter and cannot express our thanks enough for the amazing care and change she has made in our lives!”
