My name is Carrie and I'm a Speech Language Pathologist for Child's Nature. The kids I see come to therapy because they have a lot of language challenges. One of my purposes was to help kids meet their language goals in a more natural setting.
My godson was born with down syndrome and he couldn't speak for a very long time, and I became very involved in his care. And from then on, I knew I wanted to work with kids with disabilities. I think you have to be pretty compassionate in this field to be a good leader, and you have to be a really strong advocate. All of the people I know who work with kids with special needs are very devoted, passionate people.
And I'm really blessed to have a team of colleagues and family members and resource personnel who help to get these kids the resources they need and just be great cheerleaders and advocates for them
