Jacqueline Jebian Garcia
Jacqueline Jebian Garcia, M.S., CCC-SLP is a sensory trauma trained Speech-Language Pathologist, Social Emotional Coach, and Executive Functions Consultant. She is currently serving as a full-time Social Emotional Coach for the University of Miami's LOOK (Learning to Objectively observe Kids) Project. Jacqui has provided 1:1 coaching for teachers in the Head Start Programs for Miami-Dade County, Florida in order to promote positive engagement and social emotional development in children ages 3-5. After 9 years of working as an SLP in the medical model, she knew she needed to create a bigger impact in the community by creating her own tools that aligned with her heart and by spreading awareness about the importance of emotional regulation whenever she has the opportunity to do so. Jacqui’s vision to bridge the gap between therapy and home programs moved her to found Create Yourself Co. LLC, where she has provided 1:1 coaching for parents of neurodivergent children who are speech delayed and/or have sensory processing differences through the Parent Coaching Programs she has developed in order to give parents the tools to confidently create sensational connection, communication, and regulation with their child at home. She is currently working on her Neurodiversity-Affirming SLP Coach Online Course, where SLPs will gain access to her 14 Week Connection & Communication Stimulation Parent Coaching Program, in order to make a greater impact as an SLP unit in the homes of neurodivergent children. Her mission is to educate all adults about the paradigm shifts relative to how we view / respond to our children's behaviors, collaborative communication style and proactive solutions, and advocacy for appropriate accommodations to promote children to success in every setting based on their needs and strengths, through a positive, neurosensory, and Neurodiversity-Affirming lens. She is passionate about understanding our individual Sensory Profiles, in order to have a better understanding of our triggers and our children's behaviors, to ultimately create sensational connection in our homes and in every meaningful interaction.
