Monica Lange - CEO & Founder Monica received her degree in Communicative Disorders in 1985 and began working with developmentally delayed children in Utah. Monica started creating her own "custom" activities to meet the many needs of the children on her caseload. The idea for "The Speech Solution" was born with the realization that she had very few minutes with each child to effect a meaningful change. She knew she needed to find a way to maximize every minute with them if she was going to get the results she was looking for. 
In 1996 when Monica took on the responsibility as a Director of Communication-centered instructional program in California, she recognized the universal challenges that every speech-language pathologist experience such as limited prep time, large caseloads, grouping children with different goals and objectives and keeping children motivated, focused and interested in therapy. It was time to find a solution to all of these challenges so that therapists, teachers and parents could work together more successfully in helping children overcome their communicative disorders. This resulted in the development of the "High Frequency Speech Activity Cards" with the accompanying high quality visual aids and the "One-Minute Articulation" mobile app. The combinations of these two programs have become "The Speech Solution". 
Over the past 26 years, "The Speech Solution" has continuously been attuned, improved upon and tested. Recently, a new component has been added to the program. With the addition of the Language-Centered Training Cards, now “The Speech Solution” can confidently say they have developed a complete therapy plan to coordinate with each of their activities which have drastically reduced prep-time and substantially increased effectiveness. "The Speech Solution" is known for its innovative approach of teaching language and articulation skills which bring about dramatic changes in a very short period of time. 
Monica resides in California with her husband. She has a great love for children. She is the mother of six children and the grand-mother of fifteen. She enjoys boating and camping with her family and any other outdoor activitiy.
