My name is Rachel Thompson and I am a speech-language pathologist. I have worked in a developmental preschool for a couple years and am just finishing my 6th year in the school district. I love working with children and helping them access and learn the tools to increase and improve their communication. When they have those moments where they realize they can do it, it is one of the best feelings ever!! My goal is to run a successful private practice so that I am able to reach more kids and have more intense and enriched therapy sessions. Every child should have the gift and freedom to be able to communicate effectively and with ease! I have some therapy materials, but I am limited on serving all children because of the vase amount of materials needed for all of their communication needs!! Money raised would used toward evaluation kits, AAC (alternative augmentative communication) materials, and other therapy materials so that I am able to serve and work with more children!
