My name is Samantha Medland and this is my third year as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I currently work in the North suburbs of Chicago as a school-based SLP.
I received my Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Rush University in Chicago. I am bilingual and fluent in Spanish and English. I have extensive knowledge in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and have received formal training in the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS).
I recently received recognition as a Certified Autism Specialist. The program consisted of two+ years working in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders, extensive training and education in ASD, and passing the national board Autism Competency Exam. This certification has given me special insight into ways I can support my students with ASD as well as their families!
