I’ve had several video consultations with Tatyana and I learned SO much, it was so beneficial to my practice! She went over many language-literacy cases with me and gave professional direction for the evaluations and treatment planning. I highly recommend a consultation for anyone who wants guidance on a difficult case from a highly experienced and skilled clinician or for anyone who just wants to broaden their skill base. Thanks Tatyana!
My wonderful colleague first introduced me to the Smart Speech Therapy website and together we began referring to the plethora of evidence based information Tatyana has shared through this platform. I have also been part of the EBP Facebook group for school based SLPs, another incredible resource for collaboration with SLPs around the world as well as another warehouse of resources to support the incredible work of the busy SLP. An intensive, complex evaluation began our research on the psychometrics of many of the standardized, norm-referenced language assessments commonly used in our district. Rather than recreating the wheel we searched Tatyana‚Äôs EBP resources for evidence of the normative data; specifically, the parameters of sensitivity and specificity for assessments. I personally reached out to Tatyana for clarification on some assessments and she was immediately helpful with her responses. After this research, it has become clear that our district SLP team has some quality discussions and decisions ahead of us in determining what tools and procedures we are using to determine initial eligibility as well as continued need for services. I then had the pleasure of consulting with Tatyana on a complex language case. She was kind and generous with sharing her knowledge and expertise, particularly when analyzing oral and written language samples. She quickly derived linguistic weaknesses from the samples that helped guide next steps in the evaluation process. Her approach was direct, functional, with clear application of current research, and most importantly realistic with analyzing all areas of language as they integrate together to either support or hinder effective communication. As a clinician, I learned an incredible amount from our conversation. I continually find this field to be humbling as I hone my skills‚Äîit will be a lifelong effort without a doubt. In a matter of minutes I became a better SLP. I have nothing but gratitude and positive reviews to share about my interaction with the website, access to online resources with clear connections to evidence based practices, the EBP Facebook community, and excellent professional consultation with Tatyana. Thank you for sharing your expertise and knowledge.
I just finished with my second consultation with Tatyana – this time for treatment planning. Again, I am left feeling so much gratitude for her insights and knowledge about ALL areas about our important work. She read my evaluation, as well as other evaluation reports written about my client and watched videos from treatment sessions and looked a client work samples. As a result she was able to help me work towards developing a focus and strategies for my work with this complicated client. As I told her, my only wish is that I could consult with her regarding each of my clients!
I had a one hour consultation with Tatyana regarding the latest evidence-based research for literacy. She was both extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Tatyana was able to help guide me to the most relevant literature and provided guidance in my research development. I will definitely be consulting with her again as I get closer to my research project.
I sent Tatyana an audio of a student’s narrative. Within minutes, she was able to pinpoint the student’s strengths/challenges and helped me formulate a functional treatment plan for the student. I was mesmerized and a little awe-struck by her ability to “get it” so quickly and confidently. She also sent me relevant articles so I can better prepare for my sessions. I highly recommend consulting with Tatyana. I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to tap into her fountain of knowledge and expertise.

Tatyana’s professional expertise and advice was invaluable when I was presented with an unusual case. With a brief summary of assessment results and a series of videos that I sent her, she was able to immediately identify the key issues, suggest an appropriate diagnosis and provide the relevant research to back up her recommendations. She has such a wealth of knowledge at her fingertips! I strongly recommend Tatyana’s professional consultation services.
Today I had the opportunity to consult with Tatyana about a client with an interesting presentation that is relatively new to me. Tatyana reviewed my drafted report and evaluation documents, and then in a non-judgemental manner, she provided guidance where I had erred and helped me pull the pieces together so that I could have a big picture understanding of my client and her needs. I now feel confident to share my report with the parents and have research supported evidence to back up my conclusions and recommendations. This evaluation turned into a trememendous learning experience and I will definitely take advantage of this opportunity to consult with Tatyana in the future.

I recently had the pleasure of participating in a 1-hour phone consultation with Tatyana Elleseff, M.A. CCC-SLP for the purpose of honing my evaluation skills of the Early Intervention age group. Within this hour Tatyana outlined her evaluation process, the sub-headings and overall content of a sample evaluation report, resources utilized, and trouble-shooting strategies. I was incredibly impressed with her breadth of knowledge, her overall professionalism and the depth of content within her evaluation reports. After completion of the consultation she also sent me many resources to review to further enhance my evaluation skills. Through this consultation I gained invaluable mentorship for which I am grateful and I am certain that my evaluation skills will improve as a result. I highly recommend Tatyana‚Äôs consultation services and look forward to consulting with her again in the near future.
