OUR MISSION

At Bridge Speech Therapy, we are committed to helping children bridge the gap between speech, language, and literacy skills in their most convenient setting. We know that every child is unique, and it is our mission to identify strengths, address communication challenges, and work alongside parents and teachers to attain meaningful goals.

WHAT SETS US APART

Our private practice is uniquely positioned within the community to offer services that suit each family's needs. We work collaboratively with parents, teachers, and professionals within Pinellas County to treat the whole child. Everything we work on in therapy supports what the child is doing at home and in the classroom.

Team

MEET OUR TEAM

Cara Bridge, M.S., CCC-SLP

Owner, Speech Pathologist

Cara Bridge Speech Therapist

I am a nationally certified speech-language pathologist (SLP) with over 16 years of experience assessing and treating communication disorders in a variety of settings. I earned my B.S degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at Florida State University, and my M.S. degree in Speech-Language Pathology from The University of South Florida. 

 

After years of working in schools, private clinics, and early childhood centers, I founded Bridge Speech Therapy to build a more collaborative model of therapy within the community. I believe that children thrive when all of the adults on their support team have a shared vision, and I am proud to work within that philosophy.

In the past several years I have dedicated my professional development time to the fascinating area of literacy. I possess the knowledge and skills required to fully assess and treat all areas of language and literacy disorders. I utilize a whole child approach, focusing treatment on the individual child's deficits, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.

 

My husband and I are both St. Pete natives, and we have three amazing children (ages 9, 7, and 1). On the weekends, you can usually find us at the baseball or soccer field watching our children play. We enjoy swimming, biking, and camping together as a family.

Getting Started

GETTING STARTED

1.

Click here to schedule a free phone consultation with Cara Bridge. During the call, we will discuss your concerns, answer your questions, and make a recommendation for the next steps.

2.

Services will begin with an in-depth evaluation, which will reveal your child’s areas of strength and support needs. This process allows us to create an individualized plan with targeted therapy goals.

3.

Following the evaluation, we will schedule your child’s therapy sessions at a time and in the setting that works best for you! Recommended session frequency will vary and is based on your child’s goals.

Payment Information

Bridge Speech Therapy is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care by focusing our time during therapy on the client, rather than on the paperwork necessary to accept insurance. Therefore, we do not bill any insurance companies directly or act as a participating provider for any insurance plans. We will provide clients a statement of services suitable for submission to your insurance company should you choose to request reimbursement.

 

We are an approved direct pay provider for the Family Empowerment Scholarship (formally the Gardiner Scholarship). Contact us to learn more about FES.
