Chrissy Thompson, MA, CCC-SLP

Chrissy is a licensed, certified pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP).  She treats children ages 1-18 and their families in schools, homes, private practice, and in teletherapy. She has performed diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to language disorders, motor speech disorders (CAS), phonological processing disorders, and pragmatic language disorders in infants, pre-school, and school-aged children.

Throughout her career, Chrissy has focused her skills on treating patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Articulation Disorders, and Language Delays.  She has completed PROMPT Level I & II training, SCERTS, and Social Thinking courses. She continues to learn and grow as a therapist each year by attending courses and researching new techniques. She brings nearly 20 years of experience and motivation to help children improve their speech skills.

In the summer of 2019, Chrissy introduced Play Talk & Grow as a way to connect with families all over the world and offer them real, practical strategies to help them at home. She has presented webinars, shared video tutorials, and is a big advocate for play as a key to supporting speech development.

Chrissy lives in Asheville, NC with her husband, two daughters, and Golden Retriever, Lily. She enjoys hiking, reading, building tiny model houses, and nourishing her creative side.

Play is how children learn to interact with the world, developing important sensory skills.  And it is through play that children learn how to articulate their experiences.
