Laura Wilson, M.A., CCC-SLP

Owner/Founder of TheraPlay Jax LLC

I have been providing speech, language, and feeding services for children in Northeast Florida for nearly 10 years after receiving my graduate degree at George Washington University (GWU) in Washington, DC. My career as a Speech-Language Pathologist is one of my greatest joys and I have such passion for seeing progress in the children that I serve. My specialty areas include: feeding difficulties in infants and young children; early intervention for speech, language, and foundational play skills; evaluation and treatment of cleft and craniofacial disorders; and motor planning-related speech disorders. Through the agency of TheraPlay Jax, I am also an Early Steps provider for Northeast Florida Early Steps (our local birth to 3 program). I also enjoy investing in future generations of SLPs by working with graduate students. Currently, I teach Pediatric Language Disorders I at my alma mater of GWU.


Sarina Tarantino, M.A., CCC-SLP

Speech-Language Pathologist

With more than a decade of experience following the completion of my graduate degree from University of Central Florida, I have found my passion in working with children and families to achieve their early communication goals. I believe the family is a vital part of therapy, as well as establishing a highly effective (and realistic!) home program. My specialty areas include: evaluation and treatment of cleft/craniofacial disorders, phoneme specific nasal emission, early language, early Autism and neurodevelopment concerns, and alternative and augmentative communication systems. My career has also given me extensive experience in working with children who have been diagnosed with sensory processing disorders. Additionally, I hold a Hanen It Takes Two to Talk certification.
