Working with children has always been my passion. Prior to joining the team at Rehab Resources, I have been working with children for 10+ years in variety of settings. I obtained my Masters Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire and always knew I wanted to start my career working in early intervention. I have worked with children who have a variety of needs including receptive language, expressive language, social skills, articulation, phonology, and fluency.
I use a variety of therapeutic strategies that are dependent upon the needs of the child. I strive to incorporate parents as much possible during therapy sessions in order to increase carry over throughout the child’s day. I believe it is important to learn the child and family as a whole in order to provide the best individualized therapy that is functional for both the family and the child.
I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2008 with my Bachelor’s of Speech and Hearing Science. In 2011 I graduated from the University of Memphis with my Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. I have worked in a variety of settings including adult rehabilitation, school (from preschool through high school), and early intervention.
Some of my areas of strength include Autism Spectrum Disorders, motor planning difficulties, and multiple language learners. I have taken continuing education courses on social skills and Autism, apraxia, feeding, and applying speech and language skills to the classroom.
I have learned and grown greatly through my experiences in the various settings and educated staff that I have worked with. In each setting I have realized that a collaborative approach to therapy provides the best results for change and growth. Working with children in the Birth-to-Three setting allows me to look at the child as a whole and incorporate speech, language, social, or feeding strategies into a family’s daily life. Each success, large or small, is rewarding and valuable.
My name is Teri Braun and I am a Speech Language Pathologist. I attended UW Madison for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees graduating in 1998 with my Masters of Science in Communicative Disorders. I am a current member of both ASHA and WSHA and continue to be active in both. I have focused the majority of my career in pediatrics and have had previous experience in the adult population. I have experience in working with children in the Birth to 3 population as well as children of various ages in our outpatient clinic.
I continue to work with children with various abilities and diagnoses such as language disorders, articulation disorders, apraxia of speech, voice disorders and auditory processing disorders. I have extensive experience in working with clients with feeding disorders such as pediatric dysphagia and behavioral feeding disorders.
I also continue to further my knowledge and education by attending continuing education courses and training in the areas of the SOS approach to feeding, pediatric dysphagia, rib cage mobility, speech production skills, autism, oral motor development for speech and feeding and apraxia of speech.
As a therapist, I believe in working with the strengths of each child and building upon those as well as promoting family based approaches to therapy. As I advance my career, I consistently try new strategies and techniques with every child, as no one child is the same.
