About Jamie Harding

As a 2003 graduate of The University of Akron’s Speech Pathology Program, I was excited to return as a clinical instructor in 2010. In my previous work at Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center, I began specializing in providing Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) services to individuals in the community with a variety of communication challenges.  Since working with The University of Akron, I have taught the graduate AAC course and presented/co-presented on related topics at ASHA, OSLHA, OSSPEAC, and ISAAC.

Currently, I oversee speech and language services and supervise graduate student clinicians at KidsFirst, a public school option for children with autism in Summit County.  In this role, I enjoy working with student clinicians in planning AAC interventions and discovering innovative applications of technology to the treatment needs of this special population.       

This year, we will also be servicing and programming for TOPS, which educates students diagnosed with Autism who are of transitional age. The program provides students with the academic, vocational and life skills necessary to promote independence.
Special Interests:  Graduate student supervision, augmentative & alternative communication (AAC), autism, video-self modeling, and velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI).
