Rebecca A. Strong, MS, CCC-SLP works with children (ages 18 months - 13 years) who have a wide range of diagnoses including hearing impairment and/or receptive and expressive language disorders such as speech articulation and phonology challenges, fluency/stuttering, and hypernasality. She has experience working with patients who have Down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay, and who have experienced a brain injury.
Rebecca's primary goal is to help improve a child's functional communication. She works with both patients and families to determine which tools will be most effective for them and explores options such as sign language, augmentative communication, the use of trained phrases, and increasing the use of spontaneous speech.
Rebecca began her career at Elks Rehabilitation, caring for children with a wide variety of conditions, including many with cerebral palsy. She enjoys volunteering at the Augmentative Communication Camp and participating in community outreach events like the Run for Autism and the annual Dr. Seuss reading event at Barnes and Noble.
Rebecca earned a bachelor's degree in speech pathology and audiology, as well as a master's degree in speech-language pathology, from Idaho State University. She completed her clinical fellowship at Idaho Elks Rehabilitation Hospital.
In her free time, Rebecca enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, walking her dog, and going to movies.
