My name is Sarah Ott. I am an ASHA Certified, and New York/New Jersey State Licensed Speech-Language Pathologist certified in the Social Thinking©Clinical Training Program Level 1A and have pursued ongoing education in: Mindfulness Techniques in Speech Therapy, Coaching Executive Function Skills, Increasing Student Self Determination, Reducing Anxiety & Problem Behaviors in Sensory, Autism & ADHD, The Greenspan Floortime Approach, Strategies for Teaching Concrete Learners, & Strategies to Support Individuals with Behavioral Organization. In addition, I have pursued and completed certificates in Fostering Leadership Skills from the NeuroLeadership Institute and Foundations of Instruction of Social Emotional Learning and Character Development from the College of Saint Elizabeth and Rutgers.
I became extremely passionate about pursuing education and experience in growth mindset and mindfulness after witnessing the powerful impacts they had on the children and young adults I worked with in California. Becoming a mom increased my understanding of the importance of self-care, meditation, and creative teaching. In all the work that I do, whether it be Speech Therapy or Coaching Social Competencies, and/or Relationship & Leadership Development I aim to incorporate mindfulness techniques.
I truly believe that being able to better understand, organize, and express one’s own thoughts and feelings, and how these drive our actions is the first step to better understanding and collaborating with others. As people, we crave positive relationships with others, as well positive learning experiences. Children and adults should be able to feel confident in connecting with others, pursuing new interests, and recognizing their own strengths. I have found a true passion in working with elements of social emotional learning in my field and at home to help individuals of all ages better understand and participate in their worlds at school, home, and work.

“Sarah was a godsend with our son who developed a stutter at around 2 years old. She worked so wonderfully with him, often bringing games and activities to help him feel comfortable and speak freely around her. Not only did she work so well with our son, but she also spent quite a bit of time giving us the tools and techniques we needed to help him at home. Most importantly, Sarah was such a resource for us when we were feeling overwhelmed or helpless. On more than one occasion, we would reach out to her just for comfort and guidance. Any family would be lucky to work with Sarah!” -Laura, Parent
I want to help others feel confident and fulfilled in whatever journey they are on. Stress does not have to be the constant state. You can gain support from others, but also from yourself!
