Alicia Amundson

 
Alicia attended the University of Wisconsin River Falls and graduated with her Master of Science in Communication Disorders in 2008. After graduating from college, Alicia’s clinical experience consisted of working in adult rehabilitation at both a hospital and nursing home which included memory care, transitional care, and long term care populations. She was responsible for assessment and treatment of swallowing, diet safety, cognition, communication, and expressive and receptive language deficits due to stroke,TBI, or other neurological diagnoses. Most recently, Alicia worked in a pediatric private practice setting treating children with Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Marfan Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, oral musculature weakness, feeding difficulties, fluency disorders, articulation disorders, and expressive and receptive language disorders. Alicia also has training for augmentative communication systems including Dynavox and Proloquo2go on the ipad. She is very excited to get to know the families at Kid Talk and truly enjoys watching the pride in both the child and his/her parent’s as they learn a new skill and experience success. Alicia strongly believes in collaboration between the therapist and caregivers to create an environment enriched with learning and positive support!
