Anne received her bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences from Bradley University and a Master’s Degree in Speech and Language Pathology from Northwestern University.  She is a member of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association and has her Early Intervention Credential and Professional Educator License in Illinois.  Anne has taken numerous classes to increase her knowledge of the field, collaborates with other professionals, and is focused on using evidence-based techniques in her practice.

 

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

Anne: I learned the importance of applying theory and research into everyday assessment and treatment as well as collaboration with other speech and language pathologists and therapists in working with children with childhood apraxia of speech.

 

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

Anne: I grew as a clinician and in communicating and collaborating with other boot camp attendees and instructors.  Our online Facebook group serves as a resource for us to problem solve various cases and use each other as a sounding board when assessing and treating children with childhood apraxia of speech.  I also became a stronger writer and problem solver with Heather’s guidance for my case study.  I truly valued the relationships I built during my time at training and afterwards throughout the last year.

Apraxia Kids: Have you served as a local resource/information source for other professionals and families since attending the intensive training?

Anne: I have been helping to coordinate the Walk for Apraxia in Chicago, serving as a resource on the Apraxia Kids Illinois Facebook page to help families find therapists and facilities, guiding families about insurance coverage, networking with other speech and language pathologists in the area in regards to Apraxia Kids trainings and my boot camp experience, and helping answer families’ questions in regards to the nature of childhood apraxia of speech.

 

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

Anne: Use your time at boot camp to reflect on how to apply what is taught into your assessment and daily practice, and areas that you can continue to grow in!
