As a young SLP, Catherine began noticing strange patterns in children's mouths when working on speech therapy, which led to her pursuing further coursework in orofacial myofunctional therapy.

Catherine's background in being a student and teacher of yoga has piqued her curiosity in wanting to understand the anatomy and physiology behind the therapy, and how factors such as breathing, posture, alignment, and nervous system regulation can impact therapeutic gains. As a self taught artist, she spends many hours drawing anatomy to help herself and others learn about the body deeper. She started her practice, Myoga Speech, to assess and treat oral dysfunction in all ages."

Suzanne Ducharme MacFarlane CCC-SLP, CST Practitioner

Suzanne is a self motivated and highly skilled Speech-Language Pathologist with a specialty in pediatrics and advanced clinical skills in pediatric feeding and dysphagia, and early language acquisition. She also has extensive experience working with medically complex/medically fragile children, with additional strengths in family-centered treatment, multidisciplinary practice, and treatment of the whole child.

Since 2008, Suzanne has been integrating Craniosacral Therapy (CST) into her traditional SLP practice. This led to the development of an approach called holistic speech pathology, an innovative approach that looks at the whole child, and considers their communication or feeding issues through the lens of their family and their journey to reach their highest potential. Providing supportive light touch therapies when needed has allowed for optimal
development of the brain and whole child. In the past 8 years, she has been working more intensively with infants and others who have tethered oral tissues (TOTs), utilizing both CST and SLP skills to assist with pre and post op care.

Suzanne has presented extensively at the local and state level, educating clinicians and others about speech-language and feeding development, disorders and the important role of the Speech-Language Pathologist. She is a passionate advocate for children with communication and feeding disorders and their families. In 2016, Rowman and Littlefield published her first book, Childhood Speech and Language Disorders: Supporting Children and Their Parents on the Path to Communication.
