History

Speech Pathology Services of East Tennessee, LLC., began in 1989 to meet the needs of local rehabilitation centers, home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities and hospitals. In 2001, the company was asked to participate in a Project TEACH pilot program for a local school system.

Instead of group therapy, the children were provided individual therapy for as many sessions as their needs required. Six students participated in the pilot program, four were successfully discharged.

Throughout the past 15 years, we’ve enjoyed many similar success stories. We’ve built a strong and stable foundation for our new phase of rapid growth as we expand this proven medical model to reach more children and their families.

During the 2015 - 2016 school year we served over 1,200 children and their families.
