Margaret (Dee) Fish
Dee Fish, a licensed, certified speech-language pathologist, has been working with individuals with communication challenges for 35 years in a variety of settings, including public schools, head injury rehabilitation, early childhood programs, and private practice. After beginning her private practice in 1994, Dee began to specialize in working with children with mild to severe speech sound disorders, delayed and disordered language development, and social language challenges. Dee believes communication challenges may have a broader impact on a person's life, often affecting an individual's self-image and confidence, relationships with others, and academic performance, and she strives to bolster a child's underlying speech and language skills to support a child's growth across many areas of development.
As an internationally recognized expert in children's speech-sound disorders, most notably, childhood apraxia of speech, Dee is a frequently invited speaker at local, state, and national workshops. Her workshops and writing focus on providing practical, evidence-based ideas to support clinicians working with children with CAS. She is the author of the book, Here’s How to Treat Childhood Apraxia of Speech, now in its Second Edition. Dee is proud to serve on the Professional Advisory Board for the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA) and as a Topic Area Advisor for SpeechPathology.com.
