At Language & Literacy Academy for Learning, our free therapy services are the best in the region for students with special needs. Our therapy service providers are able to support our students’ health conditions, environmental, and personal factors more effectively because we specialize in them.
Our in-house therapists are dedicated to supporting our students and helping them to overcome the functional limitations or health conditions that might prevent them from reaching their highest levels of academic success.
As we prepare for the new school year, we want to introduce you to some members of our therapy team. In today’s Therapist Spotlight, meet Speech Language Pathology Assistant, Harmony Tyler!
What inspired you to become a speech therapist?
I have known I wanted to help people, in some way, since I was a little girl. I took an American Sign Language class my first year of college and my teacher is the one who opened my eyes to the field of speech language pathology. Many of her children were in therapy at some point and she had many insightful stories to share with me. Her children’s therapists were an important support system for that whole family and it was very inspirational to me.
What is your favorite thing about being a speech therapist?
My favorite thing about being a speech therapist is seeing the kids make progress and being a part of a team that is working towards a common goal.
Who is your personal hero?
My personal hero is my grandma. She is someone who has always encouraged me to do my best and follow my dreams. She has helped me through every step of life.
What do you like to do for fun?
My favorite things to do usually involve spending my time outdoors. I have a kayak that I love to take to the springs with me when I go camping. I am always looking for new places to travel.
