About the Founder
As a child, LaTeasha experienced the challenges of a speech delay and the struggle her family faced in finding local speech therapy services to help her. Despite searching and being turned away by the limited therapy facilities in their community, her parents eventually discovered a compassionate recent college graduate, a speech therapist who generously offered their assistance free of charge. Thanks to her family's dedication to early intervention therapy, LaTeasha was able to overcome her speech delay. For children like her, access to such vital services was hindered by factors like geographical location, socioeconomic background, and ethnicity.
After completing her college education and becoming a therapist, she began conversing with other families in need of therapy services within the rural Arkansas community. It was then that she realized the persistent existence of the same issue that plagued her and her family back in the 80s, even in the 2000s, continued to plague the community. At that point, LaTeasha decided to stop hoping for a solution and became the solution itself. Thus, Therapeutic Focus was established—a clinic specializing in pediatric occupational, physical, and speech therapy, born out of a deep desire to address the accessibility gap and provide the support that children and families truly need.
