Michelle Britt-Thompson, M.S., CCC-SLP

Owner, Speech-Language Pathologist

LAMP Certified Professional

Michelle Britt-Thompson, MS, CCC-SLP, is a speech therapist turned dedicated trainer/educator, consultant, and advocate in the area of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). With a diverse professional background that spans over two decades, Michelle has advanced knowledge and experience with multiple AAC systems such as LAMP Words for Life®, TouchChat, Proloquo2go, etc. 

Her professional motto is "Training is key!" and is based on first-hand knowledge of the transformative power of effective communication. Michelle understands the challenges faced by individuals with limiting AAC systems and is driven by the belief that everyone has an inherent right to communicate. This passion fuels her mission to enhance the lives of AAC users through training, educating, and supporting the professionals and parents who support them.

Michelle provides onsite training and consultations to schools, coaching for therapists, and guidance for families. Her strategies are hands-on, including co-treatments, whole-class AAC inclusion lessons, and the creation of tailored implementation plans and visual supports. With her contagious enthusiasm, she turns what could be seen as daunting challenges into opportunities for growth and independence.

The way Michelle approaches AAC is not just about the technical aspects but about nurturing an environment that supports and encourages independent communication. By focusing on daily interaction, Michelle ensures that AAC users and their support systems are equipped with the knowledge and tools for success.

In recognition of her outstanding contributions, Michelle led the team at Paul F. Doyon Memorial School to receive the prestigious 2022 McLean-Yoder Award, highlighting her leadership in the field. Her dedication also earned her the 2019 Mini Grant, facilitating the integration of core vocabulary in educational settings, thereby enhancing literacy and communication across modalities.

When Michelle is not busy breaking down communication barriers, she enjoys spending time with her family and dogs, going to the beach, and staying active by walking and swimming.
