About us

Welcome to Always Keep Progressing

 We are a private speech-language pathology and occupational therapy practice in Miami, Florida, dedicated to providing personalized therapy to children of all ages.

We provide services in our clinic and online via teletherapy. Our speech therapists conduct comprehensive evaluations and provide individualized treatment aimed at embracing the unique speech and language needs of each client. Always Keep Progressing’s goal is to improve your child’s overall communication skills and quality of life, ultimately resulting in social, emotional, and academic benefits. We realize that every child’s need is unique. Therefore, no program is designed or executed in the same way. Here at Always Keep Progressing we fit each client’s specific needs by embracing each client’s individuality. Not only do our services implement goals to fulfill the patient needs, but we also use a family-centered approach to provide the necessary education and training needed to carry over these goals into their natural environment.
