THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

In one short year, MKE SLP grew from a life-long dream into an exciting and impactful reality. I am thrilled to share I have started a new position at Children's Wisconsin as a full-time speech-language pathologist with a direct focus on building a comprehensive Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) program. MKE SLP will continue to exist; however, at this time, MKE SLP is no longer accepting new clients for direct speech therapy services. For parents looking for AAC for their child, please contact Children's Wisconsin to schedule an appointment. I am excited to continue increasing supports for kids (and adults) who use AAC systems & strategies in Southeastern Wisconsin - now with the addition of an excellent team of professionals.  

If you are an adult, parent, caregiver, educator, or person who uses AAC, I am still available for consultations, presentations, and education opportunities. Please visit the CONTACT section of the website, or click on the following link: https://mkeslp.com/contact.

Please continue to check back and follow on social media for more resources and announcements throughout 2021!

  • Maternal and Child Health

  • Pediatric communication disorders and diagnosis

    • For example, receptive and expressive language disorders, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, fluency / stuttering, language and literacy disorders

  • Developmental disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down syndrome, Cerebral palsy, Rhett Syndrome, Intellectual disabilities, among others

  • Adults clients who use or may require Augmentative Communication

    • For example, individuals who may have received a diagnosis of

      • Aphasia following a stroke

Awareness of best practices in these areas does not mean a one-size-size-fits all approach to therapy.  MKE SLP emphasizes the importance of treating a person's needs, not the disorder. This means, every client whether 5 years old or 95 years old, will receive therapy and services highly personalized to their unique communication needs and situations.
