As a Speech-Language Pathologist and a board-certified behavior analyst, I love working in both public and private settings.

Don’t miss the preference assessment that I use to engage with my patients who are on the autism spectrum that immediately helps you connect with them.What's Inside:Why I love speech-language therapy and my goals for this podcast series.The education and training I received formally were fantastic, but stepping into a real-world practice has made me realize that I want to teach other therapists about learning new skills that will reach the variety of children and adults that they’ll see.My number one strategy for engaging hard-to-reach children, and how you can implement it in your own practice.
