Trisha McGough, MS, CCC-SLP is a speech-language pathologist with special interest in orofacial myofunctional therapy. She often works with patients experiencing tongue thrust, asymmetrical facial growth, mouth breathing, sleep-disordered breathing, and/or sleep apnea (working to avoid CPAP, if possible). While she typically works with teens, she also occasionally cares for adults.
Trisha's passion for her work is personal: she needed speech therapy herself as a teen to manage tongue thrust and an abnormal swallow pattern. This experience inspires her to provide therapy in a supportive and empowering environment. She strives to help patients and their families find a connection between therapy and its potential outcome to instill a sense of responsibility and strengthen motivation.
Beyond clinical care, Trisha is involved in program development to better support patients with central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) and literacy concerns. She is also committed to improving eventual outcomes for patients with tethered oral tissue (TOT) by improving early assessment and intervention for babies with TOT, educating staff, and streamlining care and care planning.
