Emily Estades M.S. CCC-SLP, received her graduate degree from Nova Southeastern University and also holds two undergraduate degrees. She received a B.A. in Communication Studies from Saint Joseph’s College and a B.A. in Art Education from Kent State University.
After completing a 9 month externship placement from August 2016-April 2017 she joined our team in the spring of 2018. During her clinical experience Emily had the opportunity to work with children with a variety of diagnosis including: articulation and phonological and motor speech disorders, fluency, expressive and receptive language disorders, pragmatics, hearing impairment as well as swallowing and food aversion. She also has experience working with children with various forms of augmentative and alternative forms of communication (AAC).
Emily has the unique experience of being a special needs mother as well as the knowledge and excitement of a ‘young’ clinician. Her approach, regardless of type of treatment is centered around empathy and parent training to make sure successful treatment within a controlled environment is carried over at home and into other aspects of the child’s life.
