Speech-Language Pathology Assistant (SLPA), licensed by the Florida Board of Speech Language Pathology & Audiology and the Florida Department of Health. I am currently pursuing my master's degree in speech language pathology & communication disorders to ensure my future as a speech language pathologist. I work full-time and I study full-time. I never seem to stop, but I have the willingness to learn. I desire to build upon my professional experience to ensure my success in the future, and to help others succeed in their language development and communicative skills.
-I assist the supervising Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) in treating disorders of communication in children and adults. -This may include disorders of speech, articulation, fluency, voice, verbal and written language, auditory comprehension, cognition communication, oral muscular, augmentative/alternative communication, pragmatic language, and hearing disorders. -I follow treatment plans or protocols developed by the supervising SLP. I worked with verbal and non-speaking autistic and/or mentally challenged students in a small teacher-to-student ratio school setting. I primarily worked with students that have speech, communication, and language deficits and many emotional/behavioral problems that are not functioning in the public school setting with special education IEPs.

I have acquired my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Southeastern University. I primarily graduated from college with the intention to teach. However, after having the experience of working in a classroom with children with special needs, I sensed the need to go into the field of speech-language pathology. I felt the need to go into this field because I have a strong desire to help and enable students to thrive and succeed academically and socially. Through my experience in the classroom, I came to the realization that academic and social success begins with effective communication.
