Sarah Rosten, MA, CCC-SLP/L Clinical Director
Sarah, AKA “Momma Monkey,” founded Pediatric Interactions with the dream to have a greater impact on her community than she could alone. Her team of monkeys has since grown to include therapists who share her passion for providing families with quality services and creating a supportive, collaborative and challenging work environment.
Sarah received her Bachelor’s degree in Speech/Language Pathology/Audiology from Augustana College and Master’s degree in Communication Disorders from Northern Illinois University. Sarah has worked in an educational setting, given presentations throughout Illinois and at other state conferences, was an associate graduate professor at Elmhurst College. Besides serving as the Clinic Director, Sarah continues to provide speech/language services as an Early Intervention evaluator. Community outreach and parent education are a continued passion, as Sarah actively seeks to provide families and professionals alike with educational opportunities, presentations, and workshops regarding topics in child wellness and development.
As a mother of a child who was born over two months premature, Sarah was able to experience intervention "from the other side" as a parent. Her experience as a speech therapist combined with her parental insight and love of volunteering helped inspire her to co-found a non-profit organization.
Sarah and her family have a four-legged family member at home also, Alex. Besides being involved with church and school volunteer opportunities, she enjoys scrapbooking, vacationing on the beach, reading and cooking. Sarah also has a crazy side and recently went skydiving!
