"I want to make sure that everyone in the greater Stockton and Lodi area has access to a voice."
Lodi Speech-Language Pathologist With A Passion For Communication
Communication Blooms is a one-woman operation run by Mackenzie Shiba. Shiba specializes in speech-language pathology and primarily works with late-talking toddlers and children on the autistic spectrum.
Shiba is a firm believer that everyone deserves access to the tools they need to communicate with the world around them. She provides speech and language therapy in the greater Stockton and Lodi area. Communication Blooms is a great example of a business that started small and has grown organically through word-of-mouth referrals from happy customers.
Shiba started working with children in schools in 2017, but quickly realized that she missed being able to provide non-traditional services. She is a fierce advocate for her clients, and is most proud of her ability to think outside the box when it comes to helping clients achieve their goals, and supporting families through therapy sessions.
If you've never heard much about speech-language pathology, Mackenzie Shiba is a great person to help you get some clarity about the resources available. One of the best things about speech therapy is that it can be tailored to each individual's needs. Some people may only need a few sessions, while others may need ongoing support.
Shiba is a Lodi speech-language pathologist who offers personalized therapy in clients' homes and parks. Her therapeutic style is client-centered, child-led, and play-based—she meets with children using whatever toys or tools they have on hand, or pulling from objects in their environment. A big focus of her work is parent training or teaching adults in the family how to help and support their child. You can read more about the services offered at Communication Blooms on her website.
