Owner and Speech-Language Pathologist
Alyssa received her master’s in speech-language pathology from Appalachian State University in 2017. She always knew she wanted to work with kids and decided she wanted to become a speech-language pathologist in college after taking an introductory course in communication disorders. She has a strong background in early intervention and parent coaching. Outside of work, Alyssa enjoys reading, and spending time with her husband, Matt, son, Miles and dogs, Maverick & Hootie.
Alyssa has experience and training in:
Receptive and Expressive language disorders
Articulation and Phonology Disorders
Why I do it
Developing strong speech and language skills in children does not need to be boring or something that only SLPs can do. I believe a HUGE part of being an SLP is coaching parents on how to incorporate these skills into their everyday lives. Parents are the ones that spend the most time with their children and therefore have the biggest opportunity to influence and increase their child’s ability to communicate effectively.
