Meet Our Speech Language Pathologists
Meaghan received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. A major influencer in Meaghan’s personal and professional life is her dearest friend with Down syndrome. It was this friendship that helped develop her dream to work with and advocate for individuals with special needs. Meaghan’s passion for Speech-Language Pathology became even more focused while working at a school in Connecticut for children with a wide range of disabilities.
It was there she developed her passion for working with individuals with complex communication needs and provided her with extensive experience developing and implementing successful programs for her patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families.
Since receiving her degree, Meaghan has had the opportunity to work in both an Early Intervention and clinical setting with children of all ages. She has evaluated and treated children with a variety of speech, language, and swallowing disorders. Her special interests include implementing/evaluating for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems, working with individuals with ASD, and pragmatic language intervention. Meaghan has received advanced training for a variety of AAC devices/programs including LAMP Words for Life, TobiiDynavox, NovaChat/TouchChat, Proloquo2go, and PECS. Meaghan is devoted to ensuring the most holistic approach to therapy for each child while advocating for individuals with special needs and their families.
Outside of the clinic, Meaghan is an active member of two Young Professional Boards-Tall Tales Ranch and IN-Colorado Initiative for Inclusive Higher Education- which continue to provide her with the opportunity to focus on her dedication for advocating for the special needs community in Colorado. Meaghan currently lives in Denver where she enjoys all the city has to offer. She is an avid runner and takes full advantage of the Colorado Rockies in the winter, rarely passing on the chance to ski.
