About

Suzanne V. Sylvester, M.S., CCC-SLP is the owner and clinical director of Scarborough NeuroDevelopment Center, SNDC. SNDC provides Speech-Language PathologyServices to a variety of populations, ranging from pediatrics through adults. In addition, SNDC uses cutting-edge brain based technology to assist students in achieving superior academic performance and to provide athletes with enhanced timing and motor skills. Prior to opening SNDC, Sylvester worked as clinician in a number of settings, including Kaiser Foundation Rehabilitation Center in Vacaville, CA, The Spurwink Institute in Portland, Maine and Bayside NeuroRehabilitation Services in Portland, ME. In addition, she operated a private practice, Suzanne V. Sylvester Speech Pathology, in Falmouth, Portland and Scarborough Maine, from 2002 through 2013. Sylvester is certified by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association, holds a Maine license and a specialty credential under the Stuttering Foundation of America. She was nominated by the International Association of Healthcare Professionals as a Best Speech Pathologist in the Portland, Maine area, 2011-2013. Sylvester has treated a large and varied number of patients in the field of Speech/Language Pathology and has extensive experience in working with pediatrics through adults. Sylvester obtained her undergraduate degree in the field of Psychology from The University of Colorado, Boulder in 1990 and her graduate degree in Communicative Disorders from San Francisco State University in 1999. In 2006 she was selected by the Stuttering Foundation of America and the University of Iowa to participate in a Stuttering Workshop for Specialists. During the workshop she was mentored by Dr. Patricia Zebrowski of the University of Iowa, Dr. Edward Conture of Vanderbilt University and Dr. Peter Raming of the University of Colorado. The workshop is held biannually and includes twenty clinicians from various countries worldwide. It was through the SFA and the University of Iowa that she earned her specialist credential in the field of Stuttering and Fluency Disorders. Sylvester became interested in using Interactive Metronome technology in 2007 and has experienced great success in using this technology as a focal point of treatment for patients with traumatic brain injuries, Parkinson’s Disease, ADHD, Central Auditory Processing Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Phonological Disorders and Stuttering and Fluency disorders. A large body of research indicates, Interactive Metronome technology plays a critical role in augmenting neural connections and improving millisecond timing, thereby improving cognitive and motor abilities. Sylvester has proven highly successful in using Interactive Metronome to assist students in raising math and reading scores, as well as in providing athletes with increased motor performance and timing skills. In regard to speech therapy, Sylvester states that Interactive Metronome is critical in laying a neurological foundation for uptake of therapeutic tasks. Portland NBC affiliate, WCSH 6, has featured Sylvester on two occasions in an attempt to educate the public in regard to her success in the use of Interactive Metronome therapy.
