About Jennifer Fusco M.A, CCC-SLP
I am licensed by the Ohio board of Speech-Language Pathology, have a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association, and have been a practicing speech-language pathologist since 1994. Since that time, I have worked in varied settings such as early intervention, home based speech therapy, schools (preschool through high school), private practice, and outpatient rehabilitation at many familiar agencies such as Easter Seals, and Healthsouth outpatient rehab. In addition, I have worked along side many other professionals including physical and occupational therapists, school/educational psychologists, and teachers. One notable place of employment was in a school that specialized in educating both children on the autism spectrum as well as developmentally typical peers in a full inclusion setting (with a 50/50 ratio). I have consulted with teachers, parents, and therapists in facilitating communication for children with a variety of speech/language disorders in both school and home. I would characterize my specialty area's of skill and knowledge in treating children with autism spectrum disorders, speech/language delay, early intervention, alternative and augmentative communication, oral/motor and feeding disorders. For the past few years, I have been a guest instructor at Otterbein University instructing on "collaboration in the classroom" within the school of education, and have led many parent groups in training strategies to facilitate speech, language and feeding skills at home. I have been a clinical supervisor for college students at several local universities seeking a degree in speech/language pathology. The types of children that I have worked with over the years has included children with various syndromes, physical and/or cognitive impairments, autism spectrum disorders, feeding disorders, developmental delays, as well as various speech/language impairments from mild to severe/profound. I am the proud mom of a nearly 3 year old daughter and a son due in May 2009. Thank you for visiting speechdelay.com, I hope you find it helpful!!
