I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Michelle in many capacities from collaborating with her in my role as a special education teacher to learning LAMP Words for Life (trainings, consults, direct work with students) and providing LAMP family and staff trainings and support. Michelle is a passionate, patient, and hard worker! She always goes above and beyond her role as an SLP. She uses an individual's interests to gain functional communication. Michelle is always up with the newest research in regard to functional communication and implements new strategies and techniques to reach all individuals in the world of speech and language. Her positive attitude and a calm demeanor allow her to build rapport with the client as well as families. She is an active listener and is always her client's number one advocate! I highly recommend Michelle’s services.
