Hello! My name is Natalie Ross. I am a speech-language pathologist, reading specialist, and clinical content specialist with a passion for person-centered and family-focused care. I have an innate curiosity that I nurture with research on cognition, language, and executive function. I master this knowledge by applying research to my speech and language therapy and cognitive rehabilitation practices. I believe that skill development and rehabilitation is most effective when approached as a team, and I thoroughly enjoy empowering the family throughout the collaborative process!
