Front Range Pediatric Therapies

Melanie S

MS CCC-SLP

What got you interested in working as a speech therapist or working with FRPT?

I did my HS senior project on Speech Language Pathology, and at the time I was volunteering at a daycare. I observed the SLP come in to work with the early intervention kiddos at the daycare and loved what I witnessed! The more I found out when doing my research for my senior project, the more I fell in love with the profession. As for working with FRPT, I had previous coworkers that started to work with FRPT and had nothing but positive things to say. That, combined with the FRPT SLPs I would run into at my job sites also having nothing but positive things to say about FRPT pushed me to join the team.

What do you love most about being a speech therapist?

Creating and implementing a social skills group at the HS level that supported life skills. 

 

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

What is something most people don’t know about you?

What is your favorite activity to encourage learning and growth with kids?

Scavenger hunts with home supplies/decor items with target phoneme practice.
