speech therapy practice.
Communication is ...
… our life.
Communication means ...
… interaction and participation.
Communication has ...
… many sides, it can be expressed through a number of different channels.
It can be through sign language, an electronic communication device, or verbal expression.
Seeing, hearing, breathing, and articulating all play an important role in communication. Speech therapy addresses difficulties that may come up in any of these areas. We also treat difficulties with swallowing, the voice, and more.
Here you will find more information about the services we provide, our practice, and speech therapy itself.
Our prescription checklist ensures that the prescription is correctly filled out, saving both you and your doctor time. We recommend you bring this checklist with you to your doctor’s appointment and go through it with your physician.
Electronic Communication Device
If a patient needs an electronic communication device (a “Talker”) we offer to help you choose a model and apply for medical coverage and training.
If required, we do home visits when prescribed.
We work with three kindergartens and one primary school in Berlin providing treatment to children outside of our practice.

Hello! I am Elisabeth Warnke. I was born in 1982 in Berlin and I grew up in Prenzlauer Berg. I have been a speech therapist since 2007 and took over what is now my current practice in 2011. I am a member of the „Deutscher Bundesverband für Logopädie e.V.“.
Our team consists of three to four therapists. When a therapist goes on vacation another therapist steps in so that there is no interruption in treatment.
Our weekly team meetings ensure that the treatment plan for each patient is discussed and evaluated with expert knowledge. Scheduling changes, such as substitutions, are also discussed so that the week may run smoothly.
In addition to weekly team meetings, the team builds and grows together through outings and events creating a positive atmosphere for employees and clients alike.
All therapists regularly take part in a supervision group where they are supported by a psychologist and exchange with other speech therapists. Through these sessions they develop professionally and maintain a positive work flow. My employees are also encouraged and financially supported to take further training.
