Julia Low, M.S., CCC-SLP
Owner and Speech-Language Pathologist
As a child, I used to get in trouble for two things- talking too much and reading too much. As an adult, I have turned these into a career! I am an ASHA-certified private speech-language pathologist with extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults. I am passionate about nurturing a love of both communicating and reading in my students.
Prior to opening SpeakChatRead, I worked as a speech-language pathologist at the North Penn School District, the Vanguard School, and the Delaware County Intermediate Unit. I started SpeakChatRead in order to be home more with my family (I am the mom of two little guys!), while continuing to do what I love as a speech-language pathologist.
I graduated with my M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology in 2012 from Vanderbilt University (currently the top-ranked graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology according to U.S. News and World Report- go Commodores!). While at Vanderbilt, I participated in a specialized training grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education, which provided additional training in the areas of language and literacy. Prior to attending Vanderbilt, I graduated from The College of William and Mary in 2010 with a B.A. in Linguistics and Psychology.
I live in the borough of Phoenixville with my husband and two sons, where you are likely to see us going on a run with our double jogger, taking a bike ride, or hanging out at the playground. Watching my two boys learn language has been the best language acquisition class that I could have ever taken! As a mom and speech-language pathologist, I have a unique understanding of children’s speech and language needs as well as the demands of family life. I place a high value on family participation in sessions, and ensure that parents have a thorough understanding of all targeted goals and strategies.
If these values align with what you desire for your child, please contact me today! I am excited to get to know you and your family.
