Stefanie LaManna completed her undergraduate degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. She earned her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Seton Hall University. She is a certified Speech-Language Pathologist, accredited with the American Speech-Language Hearing Association, and holds licensure to practice in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She completed her clinical fellowship in an outpatient pediatric practice where she provided feeding and swallowing, speech, and language services to children aged birth to 18. After completing her clinical fellowship, Stefanie transitioned to Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital’s Inpatient Pediatric Unit in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Here, she worked as part of an interdisciplinary team and developed expertise in evaluating and treating feeding and swallowing disorders in neonates, infants, and children. Additionally, she specialized in providing services for pediatric patients with complex airway and respiratory disorders resulting in tracheostomy and ventilator dependence.
In 2018, Stefanie moved to Philadelphia and is currently practicing as a Neonatal Speech-Language Pathologist at Virtua Voorhees’ Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She is passionate about providing feeding and swallowing services to premature and sick infants, particularly those with airway disorders and critical respiratory illness. She has presented at the national level on dysphagia management for respiratory compromised infants and counseling families of children with dysphagia.
At Advanced ENT & Allergy, Stefanie evaluates and treats infants and children with feeding and swallowing disorders. She also performs videofluoroscopic swallowing studies for pediatric patients. Stefanie is currently completing training to perform fiberoptic endoscopic evaluations of swallowing for infants and children and is excited to be among the first providers to offer this service to pediatric patients in South Jersey.
