Hello! I am in my 29th year as a credentialed, licensed Speech Language Pathologist in rural, northern California. I work both in the public school system and in the local acute facility. Areas of expertise include: CAS (childhood apraxia of speech), developmental articulation delays, articulation disorders, phonological disorders, voice disorders, language learning disabilities, fluency disorders, dysphagia, acute CVA, aphasia, dysarthria, ALS, Parkinson's disease, PSP. I also have experience as a supervising SLP and an administrator.
Often the children I work with have weak auditory skills and stronger visual skills. I use the child's strengths to address their weaknesses. :)
