Stacy Gildea, M.A., CCC-SLP is a Certified Speech-Language Pathologist and member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. She received a Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 2004 from Western Michigan University. She has more than 15 years of clinical experience treating both Pediatric and Adult populations in critical and acute care, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and school settings.  Stacy specializes in neurogenic speech, language, and swallowing disorders, cognitive-communication disorders, voice disorders and stuttering.

 

Stacy is proud mother to 3 boys. In 2011, Stacy's youngest son was born with Hydrocephalus caused by a stroke.  "Being told that my son would be severely physically and cognitively impaired with speech and language impairments was life changing and terrifying, but it has helped me grow as a clinician.  I have learned all of the complex variables involved in diagnosis, treatment and, now, caring for a child with special needs.  And most importantly, he has taught me to see beauty, joy and hope in every single thing he accomplishes." 

 

Stacy's Certifications include:


Nationally certified member- Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC)

American-Speech-Language-Hearing-Association (ASHA)
Licensed Speech-Language Pathologist, Michigan

Certified FEES Administrator- Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (Boston University School of Medicine)

Stacy is wonderful! Our son was diagnosed with a speech delay and we started with Stacy around 20 months. He LOVED his sessions and always got excited when he saw her coming in. He is now at the level of his peers and is doing great. We can’t recommend Stacy enough!--Megan
