Therapist Spotlight
Jayme Stolz, MA, CCC-SLP
Meet Jayme Stolz, a Speech-Language Pathologist who has been a part of the PTN family since 2010. She received her undergraduate degree at UNC-Chapel Hill and her masters from Cal State Fullerton. Jayme is part of Toddler Talk, an early intervention program designed for children with speech and language delays. Her favorite aspect of the program is building language through play and creativity. She adds, “I love singing at circle time. The power of song always amazes me. I will watch a child who does not have any functional words, shake their finger, and pretend to talk on their 'phone' during the "5 Little Monkeys" song. It's a joy to see how music brings play out in children, which is one of the building blocks of language development.” In her free time, Jayme spends quality time with her family and friends, and she enjoys live music and shopping!
