Amy Svensson M.A., CCC-SLP
Amy earned her Master’s degree in Speech & Hearing Sciences at Washington State University in 2000. She earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1998, where she was instructed by Raymond D. Kent, Larry Shriberg, and Gary Weismer all of whom have been instrumental in the research and development of the field of Speech-Language Pathology. Prior to becoming the owner of Susan L. Cohn & Associates in 2010, Amy worked in public schools, private practice, and as building coordinator for special education services. In 2014, Amy had the prestigious honor to serve as a presenter at the ASHA National Convention. Amy provides diagnostic and treatment of speech and language disorders for children and adolescents with special interest working with children diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum, those children who present with articulation disorders, & those who have deficits in language acquisition. In addition , Amy has a passion for serving children diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) being a mom of a daughter with SPD. She is licensed by the state of Washington and is certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Amy and her husband live in Snoqualmie with their two children.
My practice, Susan L. Cohn & Associates, has been purchased by one of my outstanding associates, Amy L. Svensson. Amy shares a personal passion for the field. It was the experience of having her good friend suffer severe brain damage in a near fatal car accident and be left unable to speak that fueled Amy’s interest in becoming a speech-language pathologist.
Amy brings much more than compassion to my practice. She is an excellent clinician. Since obtaining her master’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences from Washington State University in 2000, Amy has worked 6 years in the public schools in North Carolina, concurrently in acute care services at Wake Medical Center and in a private practice in Raleigh. Her work with adults has included treating patients who present with aphasia, apraxia, dysarthria and cognitive-linguistic deficits. Her work with children has included diagnosing and treating those with articulation delays, central auditory processing disorders, expressive/receptive language delays, fluency disorders, hearing impairments, pragmatic language disorders, as well as voice disorders. Not only does she have an undergraduate degree in Communication Disorders (from University of Wisconsin), but another BA in Scandinavian Studies.
Amy joined Susan L. Cohn & Associates over 3 years ago. It has been a delight to observe her with parents and our patients. They all are drawn to Amy’s bright cheerful personality and warm nurturing way. Her effectiveness as a clinician has been demonstrated many times. Not only is she good with the patients, but also she is well respected by the staff members.
