The name Acorn and Oak was chosen to honor our patients growth. The tiny acorn represents potential and courage, while the mighty oak symbolizes wisdom, strength and durability.
"I can see in the acorn the oak tree. I see the growth, the rebuilding, the restoring." - Maya Angelou

MEET MELODY EREZ, M.S., CCC-SLP
As a mother and a daughter, I provide the care that I would want my family to receive. I love and appreciate working with clients of every age, learning style and culture. My journey to becoming a speech-language pathologist started when I became a caregiver to my mother and watched her struggle with stroke and aphasia. I experienced first-hand the need for good communication and the impact a therapist can make.
When working with my patients I like to find the activities and targets that inspire each individual to move forward while having fun. The key is that I’m having fun myself, because they’d know if I wasn’t!
It's important to customize therapy for their needs, so that they have the communication tools for their life – giving them their voice for humor, family, productivity and independence. When helping people regain or improve upon what's important to them, I also think it's critical to work as one team with parents, caregivers and other intervention staff, and to celebrate every hard-earned victory.
