Research and Development Manager

Elsa Marta Soares

Hi everyone!

My name is Elsa Marta Soares and I am the Research and Development Manager at SpeechCare Center.

I am a Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) with 15 years of experience in dealing with children’s and adults’ communicative, language and speech challenges. I also have extensive academia and research background, having co-authored books, papers and resources for speech and language intervention

At my side, I have a wonderful team of highly skilled and committed SLT, continuously studying the latest developments in our field. We bring expertise and passion to our daily work with clients and their families, focusing on the following areas:

Specialised speech and language therapy for children with communication, language and speech disorders, having into account their families and communicative partners and contexts.
Stuttering therapy for adults and children via our brand iStutter Center.
Organisation of regular trainings to SLT, online and/or hybrid, which are highly esteemed by our peers around the globe.

To lead the SpeechCare Center in Abu Dhabi is a lifetime opportunity and I cannot wait to start welcoming clients and their families to our venue in Khalifa City. The center opens in the beginning of 2023, but you can already start your journey with us:

If you are a kindergarten or primary school teacher and are looking to have these services at your school, book an appointment here.

Our work is backed by innovative methods and tools put at our disposal by a forward-looking executive and technological team. Together, we make the difference.
