Additional Training & Professional Affiliations

Julie has been recognized for her commitment to learning by ASHA, receiving the Association's Award for Continuing Education multiple times. 

Her experience and ongoing training allow her to maintain listings in the SLP directory of Apraxia Kids for the identification and treatment of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), and  the directory of Natural Language Acquisition (NLA) Trained Clinicians through Meaningful Speech for the identification and support of Gestalt Language Processing (GLP). 

In addition, Julie has also completed training in use of Augmentative/Alternative Communication (AAC) systems, including Pragmatically Organized Dynamic Display (PODD) and several speech generation devices and applications. She completed the workshop for implementation of the Lidcombe Program for early intervention of stuttering.
