A word from our CEO Eric Powel:

Dear Doctor,

Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Eric Powell, owner of Preferred Therapy Services.   I am writing to let you know a little about who we are, what makes us unique, and how we might serve your speech-impaired patients.

As a fifteen year speech therapy veteran,  I understand the needs of children with speech-related issues.  Before starting the company, I completed my fellowship at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Ft. Worth, studied under top experts in the field, and personally conducted cutting-edge research into swallowing, vents, and flexible endoscopy.

Specializing in the most severe cases, I and my team have built this organization around a commitment to the success of all of our patients.  Our agency offers speech evaluations and in-home therapy with certified therapists for children ages 0 to 18.  We treat all manner of speech-related issues ranging from language difficulties to swallowing disorders, and we strive to provide speech therapy of the highest quality through:

  • -Recruitment of top-tier therapists
  • -Utilization of state-of-the-art therapy methods and techniques
  • -A compassionate and caring approach to speech therapy


Thank you for visiting our site.  If you have any questions, please contact our office at

We look forward to speaking with you!
