Leadership

SONDRA MCMINDES , M.S., CCC-SLP

Founder/Owner

Sondra McMindes, M.S., CCC-SLP founded Children’s Therapy Place, Inc., (CTP) in 2000 and has served as the company CEO and President since its inception.

Prior to starting CTP, she founded Sondra Folley and Associates, Inc., a speech-language therapy services company in Bradenton, Florida.  Sondra’s early business experience provided the foundation for developing CTP into an expansive pediatric therapy company which offers physical, occupational, and speech/language therapy in addition to developmental, habilitative and educational services.

Sondra’s experience has been serving children with mild to severe speech and language difficulties, with a particular interest in providing intensive therapy group programs. Working collaboratively with occupational and physical therapists has expanded her perspective when working with children in the autism spectrum and with others who have sensory processing difficulties and augmentative/alternative communication needs. She has worked in clinic and rehabilitation hospital settings as well as skilled nursing facilities and public schools.  She has worked at Idaho State University as a Clinical Assistant Professor and welcomes students for internship opportunities at CTP.  Sondra’s interest in distance therapy helped CTP to become a premier provider of online therapy services providing therapy services to school districts nationwide.

In 2012, the U.S. Small Business Administration awarded McMindes the Idaho Small Business Person of the Year.  She was also honored as one of the Idaho Business Review’s Women of the Year in 2008 and recognized by the Small Business Development Center as a Small Business Success Story in 2004.   McMindes has dedicated nearly two decades of her life to providing speech/language pathology services, and is a past president of the Idaho Speech, Language and Hearing Association.

Raised in Florida, McMindes earned her Master of Science degree from the University of South Florida in Communication Sciences and Disorders and completed her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Florida.

Married and mother to two boys, ages 10 and 5; Sondra treasures time with her family.  She remains passionate about being active in the community, volunteering regularly at her children’s school and helping the Idaho Speech, Language and Hearing Association.
