Podcast Episode: Stuttering and Speech Therapy

Tania Talks to a Speech Therapist 

Alyssa (Aly) Vildósola, M.A., CCC-SLP (she/her) is a speech therapist, new parent, and recent addition to the North Seattle community. She realized early in her career that the most invigorating and rewarding work she could do was with kids who stutter and their families, an area most professionals, unfortunately, shy away from. In 2020 she opened a private practice to prioritize her work with this community and has been thrilled with her slow but steady progress. Aly is co-raising a bilingual (and cute!) child who attends the Northleaf Multiage Spanish class on Saturdays.
