Welcome To Granite Bay Speech

Who We Serve

Parents

Is your child behind in a skill or struggling to achieve his or her potential? Do they need targeted therapy to alleviate a trouble spot? At Granite Bay Speech (GBS), we offer free developmental age checklists so you can test your child’s skills in the comfort of your own home. We offer free, no obligation phone consultations to answer your questions and provide research you can trust. We help you navigate school district services as well as insurance coverage.

Clients

Are you falling behind in academics? Are you failing to achieve your professional potential? We use state of the art technology to help you obtain your articulation, fluency, language or social goals. You deserve the best and Granite Bay Speech is here to help you accomplish your goals quickly and easily!

Educators

As an educator, you know that only the bottom 7th percentile of students qualify for school district special education resources. Often, a child needs help but their scores are not low enough to qualify for free school services. As an educator, where do you go for help? We work with you, the district, and parents to provide appropriate services that may not be available in a school district setting.

Auditory Processing

Auditory skills are more than just a simple hearing test. An Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a complex disorder involving auditory deficits. It occurs when a person can hear, but their brain doesn’t process auditory signals accurately. People with APD may have difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments, difficulty following directions, as well as difficulty perceiving the different speech sounds.

I highly recommend Nancy Barcal at Granite Bay Speech Clinic, located in Roseville California. I attend monthly meetings held by the National Stuttering Association, (NSA) where I first met and often see Nancy. She is very helpful and uplifting and I often leave sessions feeling better than I did when I arrived. It's easy to tell that Nancy has a passion for her work and I recommend her to anybody who is looking to improve their speech fluency.

I take a 3 hour drive to see Nancy Barcal because after meeting with many Speech Therapists during my lifetime there is no one more qualified in the subject of stuttering than Nancy Barcal. I would drive 20 hours to see Nancy that's how certain I am that she is the person who will help me the best. Nancy understands stuttering more than anyone I have ever met. I am very lucky to have met her. She treats me like a person not just a client and that means a lot to me. Her passion and compassion is evident in the way she works with you. Knowing I have Nancy at my side is all the confidence I need to know that if and when my fluency starts to deteriorate she is the just the person to get me back on track so that I can use the techniques necessary to be more in control of my speech.

Nancy meets your child where they're at - emotionally, developmentally, socially, and physically. She tailors a program to meet the needs of the child rather than using a cookie cutter program that the child must adapt to. Nancy readily suggests other avenues of support where needed and is a wealth of information for resources on how to be the best advocate you can be for your child. I have and will continue to recommend Nancy to other parents looking for real life solutions for their child.
