Amy Smith, M.A., CCC-SLP

Amy earned her M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology from Washington State University in 2005 (Go Cougs!). She served one year in a low-income school district with a high prevalence of English Language Learner (ELL) students. Amy then worked in local school districts for an additional three years, focusing on Early Childhood Education students, as well as programs developed solely for students on the Autism Spectrum, and students with moderate to severe delays.  Amy has developed and implemented Motor Language Groups for children with both communication and motor delays in collaboration with Occupational Therapists, and has served on the Assistive Technology team in the school district.  She has worked at Susan Cohn & Associates since 2009.  Amy specializes in early childhood expressive and receptive language delays, speech articulation and phonology, Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and fluency disorders.  Amy enjoys working closely with her patients, their families, and other members of their care team to develop functional, effective, and successful communication plans.  She relies heavily on family input to best determine treatment strategies that will create patient success.  Amy bases her therapy techniques on following the child’s lead, providing them choices and control in their treatment sessions, and “meeting the child where they are at” to facilitate a strong sense of empowerment and motivation in order to increase successful communication. Amy is licensed by the Washington State Department of Health, and is certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.  Amy loves “all things girly,” crafts, reading and spending time with her three children, husband and two dogs.

“I love being a speech-language pathologist because watching a child grow and become confident in their own voice is gratifying and rewarding.” ~ Amy
