She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Pennsylvania State University, where she graduated with honors. Following the completion of her Bachelor’s degree, she continued her education at Temple University, where she earned her Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language-Hearing Science.

She also aided in the development and implementation of an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) summer camp and a therapeutically-driven playtime program for children with autism and Down Syndrome.
At MMTA, Brittany provides individual and group therapy services to clients from toddler to adult ages, with a special focus in AAC, childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), and social cognition. She also runs MMTA’s AAC clinic. In addition to her practice with private clients, she provides direct therapy services at Capstone Academy in East Norriton, and provides consultative services and trainings to schools in the areas of AAC, CAS, social engagement, and social cognition. She has completed a variety of specialized trainings in CAS, including advanced training in the dynamic, temporal, and tactile cueing (DTTC) treatment method.
She is passionate about working with children and their families to facilitate communicative, social, and academic success across all environments, and in helping children find their voice!
