Taylor Wright obtained both her Bachelor of Science in Speech Language Pathology & Audiology and her Master of Science in Communication Disorders from the University of Texas at Dallas.
During her time at UTD, Taylor developed a passion for treating children with social communication disorders and autism. She served as a graduate assistant in the Early CLASS program under the direction of Dr. Pamela Rollins, where she gained specialized training and experience in the SCERTS model of intervention for children with autism and related disorders. During her career, she has the unique experience of having served as a lead teacher-speech pathologist in both preschool and kindergarten classrooms, in which academics, language, and social communication intervention were integrated in a therapeutic learning environment. She has also treated a variety of communication disorders in the school, home health, and clinical settings. Taylor has ongoing experience and training in the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication systems, including LAMP Words for Life, Proloquo2Go, GoTalk, and PECS. She is proficient in the assessment and differential diagnosis of motor speech disorders, and is trained the Marsha Dunn Klein “Get Permission” approach to feeding intervention.
Taylor believes that building trusting relationships with families and children is a key to success in therapy, and prioritizes functional goals that empower children to communicate and interact effectively outside the therapy room.
Taylor lives in North Richland Hills with her husband and three children.
