Basha Ontiveros M.S., CCC-SLP Speech Pathologist Orofacial Myofunctional Specialist Provider of speech & orofacial myofunctional therapy

Hi, I’m Basha.

I am a licensed and certified Speech-Language Pathologist providing Speech Therapy for children and adults in the Bloomington-Normal area since 2002. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Masters in Science.

I specialize in speech, swallowing disorders and oromyofunctional disorders including articulation, verbal apraxia, stuttering, myofunctional therapy for pre and post frenectomy, mouth breathing, tongue thrust, digit/thumb sucking, tongue tie, oral swallowing, and picky eating.

As an experienced private therapist my goal is to work with you or your child to establish meaningful goals and establish an effective treatment.

I continually strive to help provide evidence-based, high quality services that are tailored to meet your or your child’s specific needs. Providing cutting edge therapy through continued training and education is always a top priority.
