Your Speech-Language Pathologist

Welcome to Speech in Bloom! My name is Ariel Basden and I'm a licensed, ASHA certified speech-language pathologist. I am dedicated to helping communication skills flourish through evidence-based and child-centered intervention. I received my Bachelor's degree in Communication Science and Disorders and my Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Florida State University. Throughout my education I discovered my passion for working with children. I have professional experience working in Atlanta area public schools as well as private practice settings. My values include connection, family involvement, individualization, and evidence-based practice. I enjoy connecting with my clients and their families on a personal level and working together to maximize progress. I started Speech in Bloom to continue creating connections. I provide private, individualized services to children ages three to adolescent in their home or daycare/preschool setting. I am based in Candler Park, Atlanta and serve the surrounding areas within a 10-mile radius. Teletherapy appointments are available anywhere in Georgia. My availability includes after school hours by appointment, with extended availability during the summer months. I'd love to support your child's growth and communication. Contact me to schedule a free consultation to get started. I look forward to connecting with you!
