Speech & Swallowing Therapy
We solve communication puzzles
My name is Mark Higginson. My wife and I are both speech therapists, and natives of Tucson, Arizona (and our office is right by an Eegees!). We both became speech therapists because of our enthusiasm for studying language and love of helping other people. Given the vital role communication plays in our enjoyment and success in life, what better way to help others than to strengthen or rebuild communication abilities? It's what we love to do! We thrive off of seeing our clients make progress and meet their personal communication goals.

Having worked in various medical settings, we decided to begin our own private clinic in order to "do things our own way," i.e. give ourselves the freedom to provide the level of quality service and respect we expect to receive when we go to any medical appointment. We specialize in communication and swallowing disorders related to neurological damage or disease, but treat many other areas too, for both adults and children. We give our patients the time they deserve in therapy, and focus on patient empowerment and independence through thorough education. Bring us your communication puzzles...and we'll solve them together!
