MA, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist
With 20 years of experience in the field of Speech-Language Pathology, Allison has worked in a variety of settings and has had the opportunity to work with nearly every type of client within her scope of practice. Since graduating from Washington State University with a master’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences, she has discovered a passion for working with children from birth to five years, focusing on family-centered therapy. Through this approach, Allison has found the value of working to build therapeutic relationships both between families, therapists, and children. She enjoys providing support and education to families as they navigate day to day communication with their child and discovering how best to facilitate language development across the early years. Allison also has additional education and expertise in augmentative and alternative communication: using Assistive Technology and the PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) program to enhance communication in children with limited verbal communication.
