Welcome to Monkey Mouths

Speech, Language and Feeding Therapy

My desire in establishing Monkey Mouths in 2004 was to provide families with a unique option for their child’s speech. language and feeding therapy needs. Our clinic is founded on the principle that all children are different and require a thoughtful, parent-driven therapy plan. When a family chooses to use Monkey Mouths, they will enter a partnership with an experienced, well-trained therapist who gets to 'know' their child in order to meet their therapy needs in a fun and energetic environment.  

Although our clinic has grown from two therapists working out of my home office to  three clinics in Hurst, Fort Worth and Coppell, our promise to provide quality-driven speech therapy services has not waivered.  We continue to treat each child as the unique gift that they are to us and to their families that entrust us with their care. 

– Erin Bernett M.S., CCC-SLP/Monkey Mouths Director

P.S. And how we got the name.....Monkey Mouths was named after the monkey that my son Carter came home with from the hospital twelve years ago.  I love my little monkey and all the others that run around our clinics having fun while working hard at speech and feeding therapy!
