Berry Speech and Language, LLC is a speech and language therapy private practice based in Jacksonville, FL. We provide highly personalized speech and language services without the limitations of traditional medical outpatient and school therapy models. Joanna Berry, M.S. CCC-SLP delivers expert speech, language, literacy, and executive functioning therapy to pediatric clients ages 2-18.
Beach Reads is a reading clinic offering 1-on-1 instruction to students of all ages and abilities by Joanna Berry, M.S. CCC-SLP. Unlike traditional tutoring, a licensed speech-language pathologist can administer a variety of standardized testing to assess all areas of literacy, including phonological and phonemic awareness, decoding, visual word form recognition, verbal and nonverbal working memory, executive functioning, and oral language skills. Each treatment session combines training through the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators with specialized speech-language education to meet each client's individual needs. Beach Reads instruction follows the evidence-based principles of structured literacy to provide ongoing diagnostic teaching rather than scripted reading programs.

Joanna provides a comprehensive evaluation of speech sound production and oral structures in order to provide a therapy program specifically tailored to each client. She provides education on various speech sound disorders including articulation, phonological and motor speech disorders and delivers up-to-date intervention.
Berry Speech and Language believes in connection-based rather than compliance-based language therapy. Through comprehensive and ongoing evaluation, Joanna identifies the nature of the language deficit and creates a therapy plan based on current research and driven by each child's needs and interests.
Executive Functioning deficits are often the root cause of speech, language, literacy and other learning disabilities. Berry Speech and Language provides cognitive-based assessment and interventions to address the source of attention and learning difficulties rather than drilling surface level skills.
We specialize in speech, language, literacy and executive functioning therapy for pediatric clients ages 2-18.
At this time Berry Speech and Language/Beach Reads does not bill insurance directly. Because we believe in upfront billing, we avoid surprise bills down the road and are able to set rates that are often lower than pre-set contract rates from insurance companies, depending on your plan. By operating as an out-of-pocket provider we bypass limitations in the number and frequency of therapy visits allowed by insurance companies. All services are provided by a licensed speech-language pathologist and we are happy to provide superbills for you to submit to insurance, but we cannot guarantee reimbursement. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check, credit card and HSA/FSA card. Contact us for current rates.
We are an approved provider for Step Up For Students' Family Empowerment Scholarship for students with unique abilities (FES-UA), meaning we can bill the scholarship directly on your behalf.

In-home or daycare/school therapy is also offered with approval from the school and as availability allows. We also provide teletherapy for any clients in the state of Florida.
The frequency and duration of therapy sessions is variable for each client and the therapist will discuss a plan of care with you following formal evaluation. 30 minute sessions are the most frequently recommended for pediatric clients.
