Founder and Director of Therapy

Hi, I’m Sabrina Conway, the founder of Lil- Chit-Chat Inc. That’s me, with my husband James, our son, James III, and our dog, JoJo. As a mother, I know how precious our children are. This is why helping children through their speech and communication challenges is so important to me. It truly is my mission to change the lives of each of my students – and their families. I’m passionate about not only helping children through their present challenges, but also providing them with the foundation to live a happy, fulfilling and successful life.

I've been working with children for many years, and in 2005 I became a licensed Speech Language Pathologist, specializing in pediatric communication disorders. I founded Lil’ Chit-Chat Inc. as a boutique clinic. This allows us to create a therapy program that is designed around the specific needs of your child. It’s important to me that your child is able to learn and grow in an environment that is fun and motivating but also outcome-oriented.

I’m originally from New York, where I worked in hospitals, private clinics and schools. Since moving to California, I have been instrumental in working with Palos Verdes Unified School District to transform their speech and language program. Here, I implemented a set of best practices which has since been adopted by parents, teachers, psychologists and even other therapists.
