Stephanie Schecter, Speech-Language Pathologist
Stephanie graduated from Rowan University with a BA in English and Writing Arts. After her twin sister, a physical therapist, encouraged her to apply her love of language to helping others, she went on to earn a Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology from Nova Southeastern University. She has worked in both medical and private practice settings. At the Baptist Hospital Outpatient Rehabilitation Center in Miami she treated patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI), facilitated support groups for patients with TBI, and performed concussion screenings. As part of her graduate studies she gained experience working at ICT’s Engines at Play summer camp, and is now both an individual and group therapist at our facility. As a graduate student she was active in the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) and developed a passion for raising awareness about developmental challenges and the broad and important role speech-language interventions play. She is especially dedicated to bringing awareness about autism and encouraging people to not be afraid of differences but rather view every individual as having a unique voice. Stephanie’s training includes courses in DIR®/Floortime, which she uses daily in her work.
