Life can send delightful surprises when you least expect it. When our children were little, we met at a nursing mother’s support group finding out very serendipitously that we had a lot in common including being Speech Language Pathologists. We slowly began to know each other through other chance meetings at the local grocery store and through various children’s activities. Eventually we decided to join forces and talents and create what is now Mariposa Therapy Services.
Our combined skills and training have created a unique professional synergy that continues to grow and evolve organically over time. Kristin has a background in work with cochlear implants, early intervention, K-8 schools, apraxia, feeding, and adult neuro rehab. Danielle has extensive experience with high functioning ASD, social communication differences due to giftedness, adolescent social language, K-12 schools, childhood language impairments, and leadership. Together, as Mariposa, we use this combined knowledge base to guide our vision to help support our clinicians as well as the clients we serve.
What We Do?
We provide school-based services in Arizona charter schools and public-school districts. With over 50 years combined experience, we are experts in school-based related services.
We provide clinic and home-based therapy services in all disciplines:
- Speech/Language Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Feeding Therapy
We understand the importance of affordable treatment and that’s why we became a DDD provider for the State of Arizona. We also are in-network providers for many private insurance companies.
We understand that many of our clients are part of a vulnerable and medically fragile population. We offer synchronous tele-therapy to effectively partner with our entire community.
What our clients Say
I just wanted to send a quick email commending Mariposa’s Speech Language Pathologist for the fantastic job she did communicating with one of student’s mom and grandma during the IEP meeting. Mariposa’s therapist was able to explain very thoroughly the evaluation process and where we are at with deciding as a team the best services for our student. Thank you!
My wife and I really appreciate the hard work Mariposa put in for us and our daughter. Mariposa listened to our concerns and really helped with our daughter’s evaluation.
I feel Mariposa has put together a great program for children that will help them grow as individuals. The things my son has learned just in a few weeks he uses in his everyday life. As a mother of a child with Autism, people and organizations such as this can change your life. Thank you for what you do!
It took close to two years to receive PT and Speech through the state DDD/ALTCS. This is because there is such a lack of therapists in our remote area. It was a Godsend when the governor announced he had approved teletherapy. I definitely had my doubts about therapy through the computer. It is always preferable for it to be given in person, but the current situation we are in calls for something safer like this. My son’s accomplishments have been especially amazing to watch. I thought it was impossible to make progress by teletherapy, but I have been proven wrong. I love the opportunity of being able to watch and participate to learn how I myself can help him do the exercises for homework as reinforcement. The therapists have been so amazing and adaptive!
