Breanna Allor, M.A., CCC-SLP

Breanna Allor is a speech-language pathologist with six years of experience working with children in the public school and teletherapy settings. She is a graduate of Central Michigan University with her Bachelors degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and a minor in Family Life and Human Sexuality. She received her Masters degree from Michigan State University in Speech-Language Pathology. Breanna has worked directly with toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children, and teenagers. Her primary experience includes working with students with expressive and receptive language disorders, articulation and phonological disorders, and students with autism spectrum disorder. She is trained in the Picture Exchange Communication System, Positive Discipline, Expanding Expression Tool, and Visualizing and Verbalizing curriculum from Lindamood Bell. Breanna values collaborating with caregivers during the therapeutic process to empower family members to assist with the generalization of a child's speech and language goals. Ultimately, speech and language therapy is a group process, and when everyone within the family is on the same page, it creates better outcomes for the child.
