Hello my name is Caroline Rum. I am a speech language pathologist and owner of
NeuroSpectrum Speech and Language Pathology, LLC. I am licensed in the state of Florida and I hold a certificate of clinical competence from the
American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in
Communication Sciences and Disorders and a Master of Science degree in Speech and
Language Pathology from The University of South Florida. In my career, I have had clinical
experiences with diverse populations, from pediatrics to geriatrics, in many different settings,
including early intervention, home health, in-patient, out-patient community clinics and school
settings. However, my special interest is supporting children in their development of speech, language and literacy skills.
I am a PROMPT trained Speech Language Pathologist. PROMPT stands for PROMPTs
for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets. The technique is a tactile-kinesthetic
approach that uses touch cues to a patient's articulators (jaw, tongue, lips) to manually guide
them through a targeted word, phrase or sentence.
I am also trained in DIR/Floortime, Nancy Kaufman’s training for Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Natural Language Acquisition, the Orton-Gillingham Approach, The Listening Program and The Movement Program.
I provide speech and language evaluations, individualized care plans that focus on the unique needs of your child and 1;1 therapy sessions.
As an expert in childhood speech and language delays and disorders, I specialize in the following areas:
Apraxia of speech
Autism Spectrum Disorders/Pervasive Developmental Disorders
