Hello, my name is Melissa, and I am a speech-language pathologist at Meaningful Day Services. I have experience working in both home-based early intervention and outpatient settings with children and adolescents. I have experience in setting up and modifying a variety of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) devices. I love helping children discover effective ways to communicate with others.
Before graduate school, I worked at MDS as a front-line ABA therapist. I feel that my experience in ABA has given me many strategies to utilize during my speech therapy sessions.
I have experience in working with children and adolescents with dyslexia, language processing delays, motor planning difficulties and apraxia, and other speech delays. I have additional training in feeding therapy for young children. I also enjoy working on phonological awareness and reading skills with school-aged children.
I enjoy listening to a variety of music and attending concerts. I love to be outdoors, and I enjoy hiking and camping with friends.
