Innovative Therapy Services (ITS) was founded by Uduak (Udie) Osom in 1999. She envisioned a clinic where she could implement the best of what she had learned from her experiences in the hospital setting, private settings, research and school district in a more hands on approach. She hoped to create a speech and language therapy clinic that offered individualized therapy—therapy that focused on the child and not the diagnosis. (View more)
Starting in a small, one-room office at Park Avenue, Santa Clara, Udie has grown her business, not in the number of employees, but in the quality of support provided to families and children with disabilities.We are proud of the life changing results and success stories from our clients. Our proven track record inspires us to achieve optimal results, improving the quality of our clients' life.
At ITS we provide services to children ages 12 months to 16 years. The clinical team at ITS has a diverse set of skills, capabilities, and experiences that allows us to quickly recognize the strengths and weaknesses that may be affecting the child's speech and language skills. Our clinical team have all completed advanced training in specialized treatment methodologies. All of our therapists are American Speech and Language Hearing Association (ASHA) members and licensed to practice in the state of California. They attend continuing education classes and receive certifications in our specialty areas. All staff at ITS are CPR certified.
ITS services are provided during the regular learning calendar, as well as during the extended school year. We also provide temporary home visits. We provide treatment in 30, 45 and 60 minute sessions. While we attend extensive continuing educational classes on numerous approaches in our field, we do not advocate one treatment method over another, as success varies depending on the child's individual needs and personality. We seek to provide optimal results by using evidenced based approache (s) that will work for the child.
