Clinical Fellow Testimonial
Elizabeth Porter MA-CCC SLP at Opya

“I completed my CFY at Opya in March 2019. It was a great experience due to wonderful and supportive supervision! Having a supervisor on site and very accessible helped me continue my learning. Keiko and Judy are very knowledgeable in treatment strategies, the school districts, insurance companies, and available family resources in the community.

Keiko and Judy mentor in a way that makes you feel comfortable, supported, and valued in your work. Through my CFY at Opya I not only gained continued clinical knowledge, but I also became more confident professionally. I gained experience in a variety of different speech/ language diagnoses including: receptive/ expressive language, fluency, articulation, childhood apraxia of speech, AAC, and feeding.

Being at a multi-disciplinary clinic (ST, Feeding, OT, and ABA) has taught me many useful behavioral management strategies, the importance of positioning, and about sensory processing. I love being able to support our clients with a multi disciplinary team in order to increase their progress and outcomes!

I plan to continue to build my career at Opya!”
