Typical Speech and Language Development


Maria Sparks, Speech Pathologist
I am passionate about helping children communicate.  I aim to foster hope, confidence and excitement towards learning in children.  I am originally from Ellicott City, MD and am a proud graduate of James Madison University.  I earned my Master's degree in Speech Language Pathology from George Washington University and am a certified, licensed speech language pathologist in both D.C. and Maryland.  I live in Silver Spring with my husband and daughter, Vivian.  I love spending time with my family and cooking Italian meals for them.  I enjoy running, trips to the beach and watching my daughter learn new things every day!
