About us​

Amanda Wingertsahn and Bridget Hormberg co-own and co-founded Blue Stars Therapy™ in 2016 and serve as executive leaders and managers of approximately a dozen early intervention specialists. Amanda and Bridget saw first-hand how traditional approaches to early intervention leave room for improvement, and frequently lack an evidence-based approach. With 20+ years of experience as an ESDM-certified Speech Language Pathologist and ESDM-certified Occupational Therapist, respectively, Amanda and Bridget have honed their expertise and woven their core values of service, inclusion, individuality and a relationship-based approach into the fabric of services provided by Blue Stars Therapy™, including: 

  • Highly-specialized Early Start Denver Model therapy

  • The Blue School™ Clinic

  • The Parent Empowerment Program™

  • Educational setting observation

  • Treatment coordination

  • Consultation
