**We are not able to take  stuttering, feeding, voice or augmentative communication (AAC) assessment or therapy cases. We are also not able to take on children with aggressive behaviors towards our staff, who are resistant to therapy or who cry/scream frequently and disrupt our other ongoing sessions.


We started an app company! It is a separate company founded in 2011 that is dedicated to developing  cutting-edge apps with family-friendly pricing, featuring games designed to improve  speech, language and auditory skills! See us on the Apple iTunes App Store and  check out the website for Hamaguchi Apps to find out more about the apps from Hamaguchi Learning & Development LLC.

What areas do we specialize in?

Convenient free WiFi access in our waiting room 

 Hamaguchi & Associates Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists, Inc. is a professional corporation dedicated to providing private speech-language therapy for children in a warm and loving environment. We've been in Cupertino since 1996! We take pride in being a model of “best practices” in the field of speech-language pathology, utilizing state-of-the-art methods, tests, training, and materials. Our licensed speech-language pathologists are passionate about working with children, and all hold a Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology or Communication Disorders, are licensed in the state of California and members of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. Our office is child-friendly, complete with toys, puppets, videos, games and specialized software. We offer assessments, as well as individual or group therapy sessions for children up to age 12.

We are no longer taking individual (1:1) therapy cases in 2020 this academic year. Please check back in early June! We are anticipating being short-staffed due to a maternity leave and cannot accommodate any new requests. Our apologies. Until June, we can schedule a small number of morning assessments and may have an opportunity for a child who needs a social/play group. We already have a waitlist so will not be adding to it at this time.


Founder and Director, Patti Hamaguchi is a BabyCenter.com expert, author of Childhood Speech, Language & Listening Problems: What Every Parent Should Know (Wiley & Sons, 3rd edition 2010) and two books on the treatment of auditory processing by ProEdinc.com. She developed a standardized test with Dr. Deb Swain called the RESCA-E (Receptive, Expressive & Social Communication Assessment-Elementary). It is published by Academic Therapy Publications and is working on a preschool and adolescent version of this test. She is also the author of the 4th edition of the TAPS-4.
