Hello my name is Janet Marron.

I’m happy you are here. Let me give you some background on me. 

Speech therapy is a second career for me. I first trained as an environmental scientist and worked for federal, state and non-profit organizations. Then I took time off for family. My husband and I raised three delightful children while living in North Carolina. In June 2019 we made a move to Michigan for a next chapter in our careers.  

I’ve been practicing as a speech language pathologist since 2011. After graduating with my M.Ed. in Communication Disorders, I began working at Emerge Pediatric Therapy in Durham, NC. This was an amazing, supportive environment where I developed my assessment and clinical speech, language and feeding therapy skills, pursued specialized training, mentored graduate speech therapy students, developed and presented parent education seminars and collaborated with speech pathologists, occupational therapists, teachers and physicians. This is a picture of me with one of my favorite friends from NC.

We love Janet Marron!
Janet Marron has been my son, Jake’s speech therapist for 8 years. The only reason we stopped working with Janet is because she moved. Janet has been an important part of team Jakie.
Janet has helped Jake in so many ways. Janet has helped Jake increase his language, how to have conversations with others, understand WH questions, appropriate space when speaking to others & making eye contact when speaking to others. The list goes on and on.
We will miss Janet!

My Philosophy

My therapy plans are child-centered, individualized and flexible to find the right evidenced-based treatment method that works best for your child.

I love this work! I enjoy implementing scientific practices to achieve results and strive to make my sessions fun. I write detailed evaluation reports, plans of care and progress notes for all clients and share these with physicians to complete the continuum of care. I also collaborate with and provide support to family, caregivers, teachers and physicians and other professionals to provide a team approach to all speech and feeding goals. My goal is to provide education so parents can be partners in their child’s therapy.

Call or email me and we can get started working together to help your child learn and grow. 

I hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and a MI Speech-Language Pathology license.

I am a member of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA), the Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) special interest group and the Michigan Speech-Language and Hearing Association (MSHA).
