About Amy's Academics

I was born and raised in Morris, Illinois and am a graduate of Morris Community High School. I attended the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and graduated with a B.S. in Speech and Hearing Science. I earned my M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. I am now pursuing my clinical doctorate degree in speech-language pathology through the Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, Utah.

I have worked as a speech-language pathologist in Morris elementary schools and have also provided speech-language services through Amy's Academics. I have diagnosed and treated articulation, fluency,  expressive, receptive and pragmatic language disorders. I worked with social workers, school psychologists, teachers, occupational therapists, hearing specialists, other speech-language pathologists and parents to develop and implement team-based Individualized Education Plans for students.

I am very passionate about children's literacy. When children have trouble reading, they have trouble learning. I help children become better readers so that they can be better learners. I am a certified Wilson Dyslexia Practitioner and am in the process of becoming certified in SPELL-Links, a structured word study instruction that improves reading and spelling. My doctoral capstone is based on research involving reading fluency.

I live in Morris with my husband Pete and three children, Tyler, Cody, and Tessa.
