Desiree Rusch, M.A. CCC-SLP, is an ASHA certified speech-language pathologist with nearly 20 years of experience. She earned her Master of Arts degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Desiree obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Stockton University. She currently works in the school setting and is the author of SLP Talk with Desiree.
Desiree believes that as a profession, we are continually challenged to think outside the box, adapting practical ideas that keep the interest of our students while targeting individual speech-language goals and educational content standards. She encourages speech-language pathologists to utilize resources via varying modalities to maintain currency on evidence-based practice within the field and maximize patient outcomes. Desiree’s goal is to collaborate and share what she has learned along the way to help us all be the best SLPs we can be!
