May’s staff spotlight features Miss Amanda, one of our incredible speech-language pathologists! Amanda has been with the Center since 2019. She has over four years of SLP experience and specializes in articulation, school-age language, and birth-3 years. Her favorite part about being an SLP is building relationships with clients and families as well as watching her clients become more confident in their communication skills. She wants people to know that SLPs help with a variety of communication skills, such as expressive and receptive language and social language skills. Helping with speech sounds is just a part of what speech therapists do!
Miss Amanda’s favorite children’s book is “The Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister. Her favorite therapy games are Critter Clinic and Pop the Pig. The most recent course she has taken is an introduction to The PLAY Project, an evidence-based autism early intervention training resource. Finally, Miss Amanda’s favorite quote is “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
