Leila Bressler, CCC-SLP

  • Leila is a Speech Language Pathologist with Sprout Pediatrics.  She attended the University of Georgia and received a BS Ed. in Communications Disorders in 1999 after which she received her Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology from Georgia State University in 2002.  Leila specializes in oral-motor and feeding therapy and absolutely loves the challenge of helping children learn to eat and tolerate various foods. She is known for incorporating lots of sensory therapeutic play into her feeding therapy as well as really involving the whole family in the feeding process.  Leila also enjoyed doing Hippa therapy (the use of horseback riding for a child with Autism and other  children with special needs) when she lived in Georgia  and hopes to resume this sometime in the future.  Most recently Leila has taken the Importance of Play for Young Children and Sensory Issues in Young Children course.

    Leila has worked in many settings over the past 14 years including public schools, clinics, and with the Birth- To-Three population in both Georgia and South Carolina.  She has co-written an article entitled “Play-Based, Family-Involved Therapy” that was published in a Speech Language Journal.  Leila shares, “I feel that I learn more from the children than they ever will from me.  It has been so wonderful to be able to change the life of a child and their family! What an honor!”  Leila also feels working with the Sprout Pediatrics team is where she belongs.  She loves that the team is full of quality people who go beyond normal expectations to help patients and families.  She says, “The cohesiveness of the group and all the ‘extra’s’ we are seeking to accomplish are what she loves.”

    Leila and Jay have been married for 11 years and have a 6 year old daughter, Sandy, and an almost 2 year old girl, Lexi! They both are the light of their lives! Leila adores her two four-legged children, Teddy and Happy, and she loves going on long walks around the lake in her neighborhood with her family. Leila also loves to play tennis, do anything at the beach, and spend time with her family.
