Katie Covey, MS, CF/SLP

Katie received a Bachelor of Science degree in Educational Psychology- Child Professional Services from Texas A&M University and a Master of Science in Communication Disorders from the University of Texas at Dallas.

Katie has pediatric experience from university clinics, public schools, and private practice settings. Her experience includes articulation, early and school-age language, hearing loss as well as feeding/swallowing. Katie has participated in a “Food is Sensory” training where she learned from sensory feeding expert, Marsha Dunn Klein OTR/L, how to treat sensory feeding disorders. She is experienced in supporting communication with the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) using LAMP-Words For Life, Tobii Dynavox, and Proloquo2Go. She takes special interest in early intervention for young children with Autism, specifically in facilitating social communication and play skills in order to build a foundation for successful communication.

Katie believes in a family centered intervention, focused on each child’s unique needs. She strives to provide research-based treatment and work together with the family as a team to help each child reach their full potential.

Katie grew up in Grapevine, and currently lives in Roanoke with her Goldendoodle, Maggie. She enjoys cheering on the Aggies during football season and volunteering on the worship team at her church.
