I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in May 2015 with a Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology. I am currently a licensed SLP working in an area high school with special needs students. These include students who are developmentally and cognitively delayed (DCD), students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and students with language impairments. During my graduate clinical externships I also worked closely with special needs students for 2 years.
I have experience with apraxia of speech, articulation disorders, and stuttering.
