Hello There!!

Play, Grow, & Bloom provides speech and language services for the sprouts of the greater Grand Rapids (southeast) area. Delighted to offer speech-language, feeding, and oral myofunctional therapy.

Convenient In-Home Therapy

Child-led & play-based therapy in your child's most comfortable setting: your home. Eliminates travel to a traditional clinic & allows you, as the parent, to have a few minutes to yourself or tackle a to-do list.

Our Approach

Play, Grow, & Bloom prides itself on providing each child with individualized care that is specifically and intentionally created based on formal and informal assessments, parent report, and therapist observations. Therapy applies research-based strategies and equips parents to feel competent to integrate therapy targets at home. With child-led and play-based therapy, the child is encouraged to challenge themselves to succeed. When motivated intrinsically, the child takes charge of their growth and increases their confidence to communicate in all environments.

What We Can Help With

  • Motor Speech & Feeding Challenges (e.g., "picky eaters")
  • Phonological Challenges
  • Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS)
  • Oral Myofunctional Concerns (e.g., open mouth breathing)
  • Receptive Language Delay
  • Expressive Language Delay
  • Suspected or Recent Diagnosis of Autism
  • Social Language Challenges

Here's what others are saying about their experience at
Play, Grow, & Bloom!

Katie is absolutely amazing. She is fun, knowledgeable, and caring. You know she loves what she does! Katie has been my son's speech therapist for a while now and we cannot thank her enough. She is patient and kind and won't push until your child is ready. My son absolutely loves Katie and is always happy to see her. She cares so much about the well being of your child and wants them to be successful. We cannot recommend Katie enough!


Katie has been an incredible investment in my 4 year old's speech development. The in-home setting works so well with our schedule and keeps my kiddo open to learning. She immediately puts my reserved child to ease and he looks forward to having her come over for weekly therapy because she makes learning so much fun for him. Katie has a genuine love for helping kids with their speech and language skills - I've never met someone so passionate about the work they do. With her help, my child will be able to enter school with clear speech that both teachers and peers can easily comprehend.


Katie is a great teacher! She has helped improve our daughter's speech and now speech is one of her favorite activities all week! We have learned so much about her speech and tips for improvement. I love the convenience of having Katie come to our home. It is so helpful as a mom to multiple kids. And don't worry about your house being clean, ours is always a mess and Katie doesn't mind at all!
