Language Essentials is an excellent choice for professional speech-language pathology and occupational therapy.  Our licensed therapists serve The Tri Valley, the Greater East Bay Area and the San Joaquin Valley at our offices in San Ramon and Livermore.

Language Essentials is a teaching facility.  We are associated with California State University, East Bay Graduate Speech Pathology Program, Gallaudet University Graduate School of Speech Pathology and Delta College's Speech Language Pathologist Assistant Program.


Every year Language Essentials supervises several student interns. Students work in conjunction with their supervisor at Language Essentials to fulfill client needs.  Language Essentials is committed to supporting the development of the science and practice of speech-language pathology.



We are reopening for a limited amount of therapy in-person sessions at both of our locations.  Please click here for our procedures for in-clinic visits.  We will continue to provide our fully functioning teletherapy solution as well.  We also have immediate openings for new clients needing services.
