Pediatric Speech and Language Services, Inc, (PSLS) was incorporated in 1993. It is a therapist owned and managed company.

Karen Parrish wanted to serve children with hearing loss in Greensboro and the surrounding areas. Karen and her therapists strongly believe in providing specialized speech services for all children and adults with hearing loss or developmental delays. We currently have four LSLS (Listening and Spoken Language Specialists) certified Auditory-Verbal therapists and two therapists working toward their LSLS certification.

We now serve children in more than 15 counties across North Carolina. Although our primary specialty continues to be serving children who are deaf or hard of hearing, we also have therapists who specialize in dysphagia (swallowing), language development, apraxia, and cognitive/linguistic therapy.


Our therapists have experience with the following diagnoses/therapies:

  • AAC (Augmentative Alternative Communication)

  • Apraxia

  • Articulation/Phonological Disorders

  • Autism

  • Beckman Oral Motor

  • Central Auditory Processing Disorder

  • English as a Second Language (especially Mandarin)

  • Fluency/Stuttering

  • Cued Speech

  • Hearing Loss

  • Language Delay/Disorder

  • Pediatric Feeding Disorders

  • Early Intervention

PSLS is committed to high-quality patient and family centered therapy. We believe in the development of specialty skills and offer specialists in the treatment of pediatric articulation, language, oral motor/swallowing/feeding disorders, apraxia as well as all methodologies of teaching language to the deaf and hard of hearing.
