Maegan has been working with children since 2003 in the field of education as an elementary school teacher and tutor, and in the field of speech-language pathology since 2011 in both public school and private practice settings. Her clinical experience includes assessment and treatment of a variety of disorders and diagnoses, such as receptive and expressive language delays/disorders, articulation and phonological disorders, apraxia, fluency disorders and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Her experiences working with children have not only honed her behavior management skills, but also provided her with insight and evidence-based practice assessment and intervention techniques.
Maegan loves working with children, helping them grow and learn by adapting therapy to their individual needs. She also loves working with families to transfer therapy techniques from the clinic to the home. Utilizing play-based therapy, behavior management techniques and a family-based approach, she strives to provide the best care to her patients and families as part of the Oceanside Therapy Group family.
