Optimizing the Lives of Children & Families

Minds In Motion is a pediatric speech-language pathology private practice highly specialized in orofacial myofunctional disorders, airway function, sleep literacy, and educational neuroscience. We provide child and family-based services within the Santa Monica, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, & Sherman Oaks areas of Los Angeles, California. Community-based, clinic-based, and telehealth appointments are available.

Nourishing Growth and A Signature Journey

At Minds In Motion we view children as ever-growing, multi-faceted, and unique individuals gifted with an internal blueprint of interconnected parts that contribute to whole mind-body functioning. We view these parts specifically as they relate to speech and communication, nasal breathing patterns, swallowing, chewing, oral sensory integration, and oral resting postures within a foundations approach (emotional regulation and executive function skills) to form and function.

We approach assessment and treatment in an innovative and evidence-based manner to best serve children and families. Our methodology integrates a blending of the scientific literature in speech-language pathology with applied myofunctional sciences, sleep medicine, and educational neuroscience alongside a compassionate and supportive delivery model to help children reach their full potential. The aim of our assessments is to illuminate the connections impacting childhood functions, uncover the root causes of suboptimal function, determine a differential diagnosis, and in turn create an individualized plan of care to best meet the needs of children and their families.

Our individualized programs are mindfully designed according to each child’s signature self, internal blueprint, and collective family and community structure within an interdisciplinary framework. With thoughtful intent, mind-body functions are nourished to grow on a child’s signature journey across the lifespan.

We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit.
