Does my child need

Speech and Language Therapy?

  • Have you noticed that your child isn’t asking questions, making comments, and requesting desired objects like their peers?
  • Have people told you that your child’s speech will “eventually come in,” but even after months of waiting, your child is still not talking?
  • Perhaps your child is talking, but you can’t understand a word they are saying.   
  • You have spoken to your pediatrician and even though your child is developing in other areas, they still cannot communicate. 
  • Perhaps your older child is aware that they cannot speak clearly and gets frustrated when friends and family don’t understand them.
What should you do?  Who should you contact? 

 Well, that is where I can help!


You don’t have to go through this alone.  As a certified and licensed Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), I am trained in evaluating and treating speech and language delays and disorders.  Let’s sit down together and find the answers to your questions.  Together, we will develop a treatment plan to help your child understand and communicate their thoughts, wants, and needs more clearly.

Meet The SLP

Hi!  I’m Evelyn J. Pierce-Ruhland, M.A., CCC-SLP, and I am excited to meet you!  I am a board certified Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) and certified member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).  I attended the University of Akron for both my undergraduate and graduate studies where I obtained  a Master of Arts Degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 1991.  

I have been treating children ages birth to adolescence for a total of 18 years. I have worked in many different settings, including children’s outpatient therapy, an ENT’s office,  and in a variety of schools.  I enjoy working with children and helping them develop their speech and language skills so that they can communicate effectively with their family, peers, and others in their community. I am passionate about empowering parents so that they can make informed decisions related to communication issues as well as  helping their child improve their speech and language skills.  

My mission is to INSPIRE my clients and their families to reach for the stars and see what can be accomplished together.  

I live in Kingsville, Ohio with my husband, Tom (an IT Specialist and Occupational Therapist) and our three children Brandon, Patrick, and Sydney.  I am smitten with our Cavachon dog Gemma, who loves cuddling on the couch with me.  I also enjoy watching movies, scrapbooking, attending Bible studies, mowing, and spending time with my family.  I love using gel colored ink pens!
