Erica received both her Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders (1999) and Master of Communication Disorders (2001) from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. After working in a variety of settings, including home health, nursing homes, public schools, and private practices, she found her love in pediatrics and early intervention. She has been practicing primarily as a pediatric speech-language pathologist for 14 years, providing therapy to children with various forms of developmental delays and communicative disorders including autism spectrum disorders, apraxia, articulation delays, language delays, and oral motor/swallowing disorders. Erica loves being a part of a group that helps kids reach their full potential. It is such a joy to her to see a child meet those milestones and know that she helped them get there. Spending time with her family is very important to Erica. Her children are involved in several sports/activities and they are always on the go. She loves being involved in activities with them and watching them play/perform.
Erica is a member of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. She has been trained in the following approaches:
- Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), which allows children with little or no communication abilities a means pf communicating non-verbally.
- Sensory motor approach to treating apraxia and the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Approach to Feeding
- Pre-chaining and chaining therapy to treat pediatric feeding disorders
