Amy Black-Ryel is a pediatric speech language pathologist practicing in Parker, CO. I specialize in speech, language and swallowing disorders in patients. I work with families and their children in their homes, schools, and community settings. I am trained in Hanen, Lindamood-Bell, as well as have extensive knowledge with Augmentative and Alternative communication assessment and implementation.
As a speech language pathologist, I evaluates, diagnoses and treats patients with communication and swallowing troubles. These conditions may be due to developmental delay, brain injury, hearing loss, autism, stroke or other diseases and injuries. Amy helps patients make sounds and improve their voices through various methods. Speech language pathologists also work with patients to strengthen muscles used to speak and swallow, and work with individuals and families to help cope with their conditions.
