Heather Warwick M.S. CCC-SLP
& Speech-Language Pathologist
I have been in the field of speech-language pathology for almost 25 years and continually embrace all the joy and inspiration that comes with working closely with children and their families. In 1996, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Disorders at The University of Houston and then obtained a Master of Science degree in Communication Disorders at The University of Texas at Dallas in 1998.
Thus far in my career I have had the pleasure to work in various settings including outpatient children's hospital, home health, telehealth, private practice, and public schools. I have also led pragmatic language groups for multiple ages. Experience in these settings has provided me with well-rounded insight into how to better collaborate with the child's team and to facilitate the carry-over of skills into all of the child's environments.
Throughout my career, I have developed a focus and love in working with the pediatric population including children with various diagnoses such as pragmatic, expressive and receptive language disorders, articulation disorders, feeding and swallowing challenges, autism and childhood apraxia of speech.
I maintain a Texas license in speech-language pathology and hold certification through the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). I am also certified in Basic DIR Floortime (levels 1-4), have background in "Social Thinking" methodology, am a member of the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance and have training in the SOS Approach to Feeding. I am a Co-founder of A New Leaf School which is a Reggio Emilia inspired private elementary school in The Heights. I currently hold the positions of both Assistant Director and Social Language & Communication Specialist at the school.
Above all, I believe that I have the best job in the world working with wonderful children and collaborating with families. I feel very strongly that every child has his/her unique learning path that should be celebrated. It is part of my life's work to help individualize therapy to optimize each child's communication skills along their journey.
