Aida Rahimi M.S. CCC-SLP

Aida Rahimi M.S. CCC-SLP

Aida’s love and fascination with science lead her to earning a B.S. in Cell & Molecular Biology at CA State University Northridge (CSUN), where she continued on to receive her M.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders in the area of Speech and Language Pathology in December 2012.

She has comprehensive experience in school based services at preschool, elementary and high school levels, in-home services for children under three, community-based services at a university clinic, and both in and out-patient services at a veterans hospital.

While originally from Iran, She has grown up and lived in Germany, Florida, Southern California, and as of 2016, the Bay Area. Her upbringing allows her to appreciate the rich diversity of our world, observe how our life experiences and shared experiences affect our relationships, and what it is like when a communication barrier complicates these connections. She believes that communication is at the center of who we are, working with and supporting each client and family as they develop the skills they need.
