About Me

     Hello! I’m Ashleigh Hurd.  In 2012, I graduated University of NC - Greensboro with my undergraduate degree and from Armstrong State University in 2014 with my Master’s degree, both in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I have experience with a variety of ages and skills through internships/externships and work experience in the pediatric ages.  I have worked 6 years at an elementary school in Duval County as one of the SLPs for the general education population, as well as the Communication and Social Skills (CSS) program for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and similar disabilities. My primary caseload included the CSS program working closely with the team to best meet the student's needs.  I currently also work in New Mexico at a virtual school servicing students in elementary, middle, and high school. I serve students and families working on receptive, expressive, and pragmatic language, Autism, as well as articulation and phonological disorders through teletherapy including each student's team of teachers and parents. 

      My passion is to help children and teenagers achieve their goals and be the best they can be throughout their life.  We will incorporate learning with work, games, and lots of fun. It will not always be fun and games.  Working towards the goals in speech and/or language goals will always come first.  Evidenced-based practice and research show that children (and adults) learn best during play and fun.  Play makes the children interested in what they are doing without realizing they are working.  Some skills will require more work-based therapy than play-based though as long as they are motivated.  


I look forward to meeting all of you and working with your children!
