Brooke James, M.S., SLP-Intern

Provider Type: Speech-Language Pathologist, Oral-Myofunctional Therapist

Location: Hurst

I’m Brooke James, M.S., SLP-Intern and I joined Monkey Mouths in May 2019 as a SLP-Intern under the supervision of Randi Thomas.  I earned my undergraduate degree from Texas Tech University and my Master’s degree from the University of Texas at Dallas.

I believe that play can be purposeful.  Integrating therapy into play can support and refine the child’s skills while making speech therapy fun!  I strive to create an environment where children feel comfortable and encouraged to be their best, regardless of difficulty or diagnosis. Any child is capable of greatness given the tools to be successful and I love serving families to find what works best for their individual child.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, listening to live music and taking my dog Tux to the park.
