Meet Miss Kat
Meet Miss Becky
Becky Turner, MS, CCC-SLP
Becky is a Florida native, born and raised on the beautiful beaches of the Florida panhandle. She spent the last 10 years living in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois and is beyond excited to be back “home” in the Sunshine State. Becky received her Master’s Degree (2005) in Communicative Disorders from the University of Central Florida. She knew at a young age that she wanted to pursue the field of speech-language pathology after watching her grandfather go through rehabilitation after a severe stroke to regain his communication skills. She firmly believes that no matter the age, a toddler who is a late talker through a geriatric stroke patient, the best gift she can give is to help others communicate with their families and loved ones.
Becky has experience working with both children and adults in numerous settings, such as home-based therapy, private clinics, inpatient and outpatient hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. She is experienced in evaluating and providing treatment in a variety of areas including, but not limited to, ASD, articulation, expressive and receptive language, fluency, oral motor dysfunction, sensory processing disorders and both sensory based and structurally rooted feeding difficulties. Becky has worked as an early interventionist, a traumatic brain injury specialist, CFY supervisor, feeding specialist, and therapist mentor. She has lead several school-age social language groups utilizing the Superflex curriculum and has been trained in the use of Interactive Metranome, SOS feeding therapy, Beckman Oral Motor Therapy and several cognitive-communication treatment techniques.
Becky strongly believes that each patient is unique; therefore, takes an individualized approach with each patient and their treatment plan. She sees the importance of working in conjunction with her patients, their families, other professionals, and schools to develop and implement treatment programs to best serve her patients and facilitate carryover of skills into their everyday environments.
Outside of the treatment room, Becky enjoys going to the beach and being outdoors with her family and friends. Traveling, crafting and shopping also bring a smile to her face. She is very excited to be a part of the Amazing Kidz Therapy team and looks forward to serving the community and their speech, language and feeding therapy needs.
Provide children the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential, enhance the lives of the families we touch, strengthen the communities we serve.
