Building the Tree House

Welcome to the Tree House at Clifton Square!


Founded in 2013 by Caitlin Smith, Small Talk Wichita - Pediatric Speech Therapy, LLC was built with the mission to show owlets how to eat, talk, and play their way into learning how to speak and eat! Whether that be with infants to teenagers who are having challenges with eating, or toddlers to young adults who are struggling with a speech disorder, we will work together to foster the growth and development of your owlet's path to acquire speech, language and healthy eating skills.

A graduate of Wichita State University, Caitlin Smith has traveled throughout the United States to get firsthand experience of owlets and the various speech, language and feeding  disorders that they can develop. 

Her exposure to these disorders along with going through a variety of      training and certification courses over the course of thirty years has led her to be able to provide therapy using both past and current  researched techniques to help her owlets master their goals.

Her philosophy is best explained through the words of Fred Rogers.

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  But for children play is serious learning.  Play is really the work of childhood."

Caitlin Smith provides play based speech-language and feeding therapies.
