Here at Clear Speech Inc we specialize in speech therapy in other languages. Whether it be in Hindi or English we want every child to speak clearly. Our team member that take care of the speech therapy in Hindi is Dua. Here is a little bit about her.
Hello! My name is Dua. I am from Shimla, a small hill town in the Himalayan mountain ranges in Himachal Pradesh, India. I completed my Bachelors of Science degree in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology from PGIMER Chandigarh, India in 2007. I worked as an audiologist and speech-language pathologist at a school for children with hearing impairment in India for 6 months before moving to the Lawrence, Kansas to work on a Masters degree in 2008. I graduated with a Masters of Arts in Speech- Language Pathology in 2010. During my Masters program I worked as a research assistant on a study targeted at creating a rating scale for assessment of communication abilities in children and adults with severe multiple impairments.
After earning my Masters, I moved to Washington to work in a skilled nursing facility. I love living in Washington because of the cedarwood trees here which remind me of growing up in Shimla. I worked in skilled nursing facilities for 7 years both as a speech-language pathologist and a rehabilitation director. My responsibilities included treating clients and managing the therapy department. I enjoyed working with the older adults because of their insight about life and their unique experiences that they were kind enough to share with me during our time together.
I am certified in Lee-Silverman Voice Therapy (LSVT) and Vital Stim therapy. Both are successfully used for treatment with the pediatric and adult population. I have also completed a leadership development program through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and have earned 3 ASHA ACEs (Award for Continuing Education). ACE is a formal recognition of professionals who have demonstrated their commitment to lifelong learning by earning 7.0 ASHA continuing education units (CEUs) (equivalent to 70 contact hours) within a 36-month period.
After 7 years of working with the adult population, I decided to make a transition and start working with children in a private practice setting. This brought me to Clear Speech Inc. I am excited to see what this new journey will bring into my life.
In my spare time, I enjoy connecting with my extended family via phone or Skype, taking care of our fish, and traveling with my husband Tarun.
