Congratulations to ChildServe – Ames Speech Language Pathologist Meghan Wells for completing her Clinical Fellowship year and already impacting many along the way. Meghan is currently working on trying out different communication devices with the kids she serves.
“It has been great to see how their faces light up when they begin to explore new device options and find their voice,” says Meghan. “The best part of my job is working with and connecting with the families. I love working as a team to support their child in the best way possible.”
Meghan has been helping Killian navigate his new device and explore how they can maximize his communication options.
“Since receiving his device in May 2022, Killian’s expressive language has blossomed,” says Meghan. “We started working on expanding his expressive language to include communicative functions such as: making requests, asking for help, commenting on activities, sharing fun moments from his week and so much more.”
While in college, Meghan discovered her passion for helping others reach their fullest potential. She explored majors in teaching and occupational therapy before landing on speech-language pathology. Speech therapy combined Meghan’s two passions with the perfect mix of the medical field and teaching.
Working at ChildServe, Meghan gets to help kids reach their fullest potential each and every day. Likewise, employees at ChildServe are given opportunities to learn, grow and reach for their goals while working in a collaborative team environment.
“At ChildServe I feel supported by my colleagues, I am able to collaborate with all therapy disciplines easily, and I am always encouraged to pursue continuing education,” says Meghan. “The support from my colleagues was particularly appreciated throughout out my Clinical Fellowship year.”
