Sarah Rosten, MA, CCC-SLP/L
Sarah enjoys being a speech therapist and founded Pediatric Interactions in 2002 to reach more families. She currently serves as the Clinic Director and continues to provide speech/language therapy, with a passion providing Early Intervention evaluations. Her goal is to foster an environment to provide quality services to children and their families, as well as a supportive work environment for employees to encourage collaboration and continuing development.
Sarah received a Bachelor’s degree in Speech/Language Pathology/Audiology from Augustana College and a Master’s degree in Communication Disorders from Northern Illinois University. After graduation, she worked in an educational setting and continues to consult with teachers, staff and parents. She provides Early Intervention (EI) services in families’ homes, as well as services in the clinic. Sarah also enjoys teaching others by providing workshops for families and professionals. She has taught throughout Illinois as an EI trainer and is an associate professor at Elmhurst College.
Another of Sarah’s passions is giving back to the community through volunteering. She is actively involved in many non-profit organizations and one of the founders of WeeBits (www.weebitsforfamilies.org) . Sarah is a mother of a child who was born over two months premature and she was able to experience intervention "from the other side" as a parent. She loves to scrapbook the memories as her daughter continues to grow.
