MY BACKGROUND

Alyssa Gerrity, M.S. CCC-SLP

My name is Alyssa Gerrity and I am an ASHA certified speech-language pathologist. I live in Olathe, KS and I am licensed to provide speech therapy for students living in Kansas and Missouri. I provide speech therapy evaluations and treatment via a teletherapy platform. 

A passion for helping others led me down the path of speech-language pathology and into a career that allows me to provide my students with high quality services. As a licensed speech-language pathologist since 2012, I bring a wide range of experience to therapy in order to find fun and effective solutions for my clients. Read on to learn more about my clinical background.


I received a Master of Science Degree in Communication Disorders and Sciences from Eastern Illinois University in 2012. While attending graduate school, I gained clinical experience working with both adult and pediatric clients. During this time, I realized that I was most passionate about helping children grow in their speech-language skills. 


I began working in an elementary school setting in 2012 and subsequently gained a tremendous amount of experience working with children ages 3-11. What an amazing journey it has been to serve students with a wide range of abilities and diagnoses. 


While practicing as a school-based speech-language pathologist, I had a growing desire to provide private therapy services. This would allow me to be more effective in working one-on-one with students in order to help them reach their potential. 


In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, travel, read, and cook. I also love to research best practices in my field and find fun and engaging speech-language activities!


I look forward to getting to know your unique child. If you have questions about this process, I can help!
