Amy Sherman, M.A., CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist
My goal and focus is to provide personalized therapy with a whole-child approach. I specialize in and enjoy evaluating and treating
children starting at fourteen months through teens in the areas of speech/articulation development, oral-motor training, apraxia, language comprehension and expression, auditory processing, social skills/pragmatics, stuttering, accent reduction, and cognitive retraining. In addition, I work with adults in all of the above areas plus voice training.
I graduated from the University of Florida earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology in 1986, and then continued in my studies to earn my Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 1988 from the University of Memphis. In 1989, I received my Certificate of Clinical Competence and Georgia state license. Prior to opening my private practice in January 1994, I worked independently for many hospitals and out-patient facilities in the Atlanta area.
In order to stay up-to-date and be on the cutting edge of my profession, I attend various continuing education classes including PROMPT, Apraxia, and nutrition courses. I have a high interest in the role nutrition and overall health plays in the growth and function of the brain and body, and how it impacts speech-language development.
In 2007, I was honored to be asked to serve on the Editorial Board for Kids Enabled Publication, a position I hold in the highest esteem.
“Amy Sherman is a dedicated speech therapist who makes it her job to not only effectively work on speech issues, but to create an environment of love and trust with her patients. We saw much needed change and improvement in speech patterns due to Amy’s work and through the tools and detailed information she provided us for ‘in-home’ reinforcement. My daughter has so much fun, she never realized she was actually ‘working’. I highly recommend Amy to other moms who value not only the process, but the importance of a loving and enriching environment where the child’s well being comes first.”
