Who Provides the Treatment?
A Brief Introduction
Anjlee Patel CCC-SLP, Ed.M.
Treatment of Cogmental™ Processes
Owner, Synergic Therapy
Thank you for considering Synergic Therapy!
Synergic Therapy is a privately owned practice operated by Anjlee Patel. I established the practice from a desire to provide a synergistic and evidence-based approach to prevention, assessment, and treatment while positively impacting children and their families' lives.
My areas of focus include executive functioning, being social (understanding and applying social and emotional competencies), synergistically utilizing applied behavior analysis principles to improve behavior skills, and utilizing brain-based interventions to treat neurological differences in learning, socializing, and thinking (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder, Apraxia, Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder).
I strive to create the most conducive environment for learning to happen. Optimal learning occurs in an environment where a student feels safe, regulated, and motivated to learn. Under these conditions, a student makes the most gains socially, behaviorally, emotionally, and cognitively.
I primarily serve infants up through young adults that are college age. Still, I have extensive experience working with middle-aged adults who are parents, business executives, professionals in the medical and educational fields, administrators, government officials, foreign dignitaries, and athletes and their families.
I received most of my education in the South Bay Area of California. Attending Santa Clara University to achieve my master's in education, San Jose State University, to complete requirements for a speech and language/communications master's degree and a degree in clinical counseling psychology, and National University for the BCBA coursework, a certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. This makes up the majority of my college-level education.
I maintain my Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC-SLP) and California License as a Speech & Language Pathologist. I have been practicing my profession since 2000. My office is located in Campbell, California, where most afternoons and evenings, I am in the office seeing private patients for individual therapy and therapy in pairs and small groups. Mornings and early afternoons, I work with local school districts, advocates, attorneys, and parents, supporting the development and implementation of behavioral, communication, executive functioning, and academic programs combining skills, strategies, and behaviors to help students succeed.
Staying current and informed within my profession is a priority to me, as is networking to build a solid referral base. Learning and teaching are my passions, to which golf, cooking, and art are often superseded. I am eternally grateful to have been given the opportunities to work with neuro-typically developing students, students with neurological differences, and other family members in need.
