My passion for orofacial myology is due to my personal experience with my son.
Edith Young, M.A., CCC-SLP
Edith is a licensed and certified Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) and holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC). She received a Bachelor of Science in Speech and Hearing from Texas A&M Commerce as well a Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Texas Woman’s University.
She is a member of the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) and Apraxia Kids. She has been working as a licensed pediatric speech-language pathologist for 30+ years with a focus on feeding, swallowing, orofacial myology and oral motor planning. She has experience with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and other speech, language, feeding, and swallowing disorders through working in pediatric home health with medically complex children, her own private practice as well as Apraxia Dallas.
Her passion for orofacial myology is due to her personal experience of the cascading negative effects of a tongue thrust, open mouth breathing posture, and a restricted lingual frenulum (tongue-tie) on her son. She consistently seeks out continuing education opportunities to keep up with the latest research and evidence-based practices to best help her clients.
Here at PCS, we strive to help each child reach their fullest communication/ swallowing/ feeding potential while teaming up with the child’s family and caregivers to put into practice what they learn in the therapy sessions.
