Congratulations Amber McCrea, MA, CCC-SLP!

Congratulations to Amber McCrea, MA, CCC-SLP, for graduating from the Apraxia Kids Intensive Training Institute (Apraxia Boot Camp)!

Amber has worked in the field of special education as a speech-language pathologist and behavior consultant since 2009. She received dual Bachelor’s Degrees in Communication Sciences and Disorders and Liberal Studies with an emphasis on early childhood education, and her Master’s Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from California State University, Chico. Amber has experience working with a variety of funding sources and diagnoses within public school, private school, and clinical settings. She provides assessment and treatment to pediatric clients ages 12 months to 18 years with diagnoses including speech sound disorders, autistic disorder, childhood apraxia of speech, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, developmental delay, expressive and/or receptive language disorders, pragmatic language disorder, and augmentative and alternative communication in individual sessions, dyad sessions, small groups and large groups. Amber holds a special interest in childhood apraxia of speech and augmentative and alternative communication. She is PROMPT Level 2 (Bridging) trained, and is a two-time recipient of ASHA’s Award for Continuing Education (ACE).

 

Apraxia Kids: If you were to state the #1 thing you learned from this training experience, what would that be?

Amber: Picking one is a bit of a challenge, but I think the most impactful was how to conduct a thorough evaluation and analyze the information for differential diagnosis. Although I had incorporated various methods into prior evaluations, I have now expanded my toolbox to include analysis of diagnostic markers and further consideration of the motor speech system.

Apraxia Kids: Tell us about any relationships that you formed through the training experience.

Amber: Participating in the Bootcamp and building relationships among like-minded SLPs has been amazing. I have gained a group of colleagues around the world that are passionate about working with individuals with CAS and know that I can turn to them for any guidance I may need.

Apraxia Kids: What would you say to someone considering applying to boot camp next year?

Amber: Bootcamp is challenging and demanding, but an invaluable experience. If you are passionate about working with the CAS population, apply!
