Meet the Owner

Yemi Idowu M.S. CCC-SLP

Owner/ Speech Language Pathologist

Yemi is the founder of Language Building Blocks LLC. She is a licensed and ASHA certified speech language pathologist with a focus in early intervention. Yemi loves working in early intervention because she gets to work with the entire family unit. As a mother of a neurodiversity child on the spectrum, she is familiar with the overwhelming feeling that come with trying to find the right supports and professionals to support your child.

While working in early intervention, several families expressed the lack of opportunities for their child to socialize with other peers. That eventually lead to the birth of Language Building Blocks LLC. The hope is to provide a place where children can build their social skills and speech and language skills. It is also a place where parent/caregivers receive support through parent training and parent coaching.
